    MTBR Commuters - Make your mark on the map

    I created an interactive map to graphically show where we all are. The map is a wiki, meaning anybody can edit it. Don't use exact locations if you are worried about privacy. Zip code is close enough. With events like Sandy this will let others know who is going through similar weather. Have Fun. Thanks for the idea rodar.

    Click the link / Click Additions / Add Marker
    Enter your MTBR user name, add a picture or description if you like.
    From here you can either click your location on the map or enter your location (zip code works for USA)
    Hit Submit.

    https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=444558

    (The new Vbulletin took our embedded map away - links are fixed)

    It would definitely be a good sticky. Otherwise it will probably vanish since it's not the kind of topic that will get a lot of regular posts, and then new posters won't know about it or be able to find it.

    I added you. The embedded map won't let you add markers so I added a note in the instructions. I couldn't get any closer than somewhere in Sydney. (or are you in South Africa now?)

    There's a marker in Johannesburg with your name on it so I thought you might have put it there.

    I found a moderator and had them sticky it.

    The map site is pretty cool. I didn't even have to create an account to create the map.

    Now that we know Europe, Africa and Australia only have one bike commuter each, and at least one from the US is in the ocean, I wonder how bike shops are making any money.

    If you click on my marker, I explained that I'm trying out the flotation properties of fatbike tires.

    ...I added a real one too. Couldn't resist the wide open seas though.

    Gorgeous city shot!! Nevr made it to Munich when I was 'in-country' ('85-88), but the architecture takes me back.

    My last year there, I lived 'in the shadow' of the Marnheim Bridge, which the locals blew up during WWII because their nearby town was getting accidentally devastated by Allied bombers TRYING for the bridge!

    Yeah, I guess a lot of people aren`t too hip on putting that info online. But since the ones we know of have already put it out there (or we wouldn`t know about it), I dunno if it matters any more. Can`t knock anybody for not wanting to though, and what is there is still pretty cool.

    I'm on now.

    I commute into and around Boston - Cambridge specifically. I'd guess that less than 50% of the people I work with drive to work. Some don't even have cars.

    A number of factors make this possible. The city limits the number of parking spaces an employer can provide. My employer offers cash incentives/reimbursements for alternative transportation. Boston has decent public transportation. (hmm... decent? maybe that's a stretch - but it's certainly functional!)

    Dalton - I used to commute from Ypsilanti into Ann Arbor in Michigan. 10 miles each way.

    I hear about life on the eastern seaboard, and it sounds like a different world to me! Max alowable parking spaces for an employer? Very cool concept, but it would never fly here!

    What`s the riding like in and around the Boston area? Lots of useable bikepaths to cool places? Would it be feasible to bike the tourist areas? It looks like my wife and I are going out next summer to visit my SIL who lives somewhere in the Boston metro area (so, probably between you and Straz- need to find out more specifically), and I might drag a bike with me to entertain myself while they`re doing the "girl" thing. Do you think biking the Concord-Lexington-Boston route would be a crazy traffic nightmare, better attempted on a tour bus?

    Evening all, i have recently relocated from Yorkshire in the north of England to Eindhoven for work. I am amazed at how cycling seems to be a religion here and yet i am the only mark on the map here.

    Ps it is much easier cycling in the Netherlands than on the Pennines but the views are not the same!!!!

    Great, whereabouts are you, I didn't see your mark right off.

    For anyone else, here's how to add yourself to the map without going to the first page...

    I notice a big gap in the western Great Plains of the US. This may be in part because there are few people, few cycling commuters, and long distances, but I wonder if it is mostly that MTBR is not where the roadie commuters from these states hang out. We had someone in Fargo trying to ride put the winter at one point.

    ^^Interresting thought: no mountains = no mountain bikes? Maybe they`re all on the recumbent yacksites` commute subforums.
    Fargo or Moorehead MN? Don`t remember that guy`s name, but he had a beautiful old Romic.

    L.t., there`s another forum regular up there in Anchorage with you (JordyB) who isn`t on the map.

    I've thought of adding some of these "slackers" to the map. We know where they are from, it's not like they are hiding anything. Some of the Canadians fall into this category too.

    Haha!
    Naw, if sombody knows about the map and decides he doesn`t want to carry the FOIA that far into his personal life, I think it`s fair enough not to post up there. Even if it`s burried somewhere else in the archives of the forum, I can see not wanting to be part of that big ol One Stop Shop for whatever kind of spammers and scammers might be lurking... all those "guest" viewers listed on the bottom of the screen every day spook me a little too.

    So, did I just help the NSA and Rich Uncle in Nigeria to find thier long lost nephew Jordy?

    I'm the only one in Fort Worth TX as well. Hard to believe that as I know of a good amount of "hipsters" who live here and commute every day.

    Just added myself. Looks like there are about 3 others over in Boise. Cool! Maybe I'll meet one or two of them sometime.

    Illinois is a void, apparently (on the site anyway) until you get to Chicago. Meh.

    That's a good one. Better than the giant cocks that have been so overdone.

    First in greater Cleveland. Not surprised, although cycling is definitely enjoying quite a renaissance here. even just since the start of this year, I have been seeing an awful lot more regular bike commuters. Combine that with the great advocacy work of BikeCleveland which is really helping the development of new bike infrastructure, and I expect I won't be alone on the map for long.

    My commute is too long for just bike but lucky have a good train line running to work. Choice of stations at 3 mile (30% on path), 7 mile (95% on path), 10 mile (97% on path) and 15 mile (99% on path).

    Winter commute temps typically around 40-60F, gets as high as 100F or more in summer though.

    I'm only the second one in Houston, TX. There are other commuters at my office, but they must not be on this forum.
