LADOT Bikeways is celebrating the addition of 5,000 official bicycle parking spaces to their online bikeways map. While this is hardly earth-shattering news, it is a nice step for the agency as it moves towards creating a bicycle friendly city. In the real world, it’s nice to be able to plan a trip and know how much bicycle parking is at or near your destination.

While this is certainly a good step, the real excitement will come when a service that offers bike routing uses LADOT’s data to add bike parking to their maps so one can create a route and see the parking all in one place. But for now, LADOT deserves a pat on the back for making their bikeways map a little better.
