At least I'm enjoying the ride! <insert Jerry Garcia guitar solo here>
That goes to a map showing Madison's 587 crashes involving a bicycle and at least one motor vehicle between May 15, 2008, and Aug. 13, 2013.
You can hover over the dots and get details for each location -- who was ticketed, injuries, etc.
It's easy to see Sherman Ave needs some improvement, and the data a year from now will show how well the realignment is working.
The worst parts of the city for bikes, however, are nearer campus.
And the safest parts, comparatively speaking, seem to be where a bike path takes bike traffic off the street grid and onto its own dedicated route, though individual bad intersections between the bike path and a car route weaken that pattern.
