About The Event
Bike Lane Uprising, is a cyclist-led civic tech platform making it easy to report bike lane obstructions. While many miles of bike lanes exist, they’re often blocked by vehicles that use them as free parking. Blocking bike lanes is dangerous for cyclists as it forces them into faster moving traffic. By creating a central database of bike lane obstructions uploaded by members, we are able to highlight problem areas and trends surrounding bike lane violations. Bike Lane Uprising works with local organizations, city departments, and companies in an effort to prevent future bike lane obstructions. Cyclists from over 70 cities
