Detroit Minimalist Bicycling Map


Part of my Michigan Bicycle Cities series, this map is made to show the emphasis on biking in Detroit (or rather the new emphasis on biking in Corktown and SW Detroit).

I saw this idea over at Paste in Place by Ryan Sullivan and it really got me thinking about the cities that I’ve biked in most and how they measure up to other cities around the world. Michigan has a long way to go, but these cities all have great bicycle cultures. I decided to add a circle around the cities because they don’t really have cool bodies of water to fill the negative space, just rivers that run through them. All lines are bike lanes, bike paths with signage, or multi-use bicycle trails.
