ORcycle

Help make Oregon a SAFER place to BIKE !

With the latest update ORcycle users have the option to voluntarily send safety reports directly to Ask ODOT Citizens Representative Office. Ask ODOT will send the safety report to the appropriate ODOT District or, if the issue is not located on a state facility, to the local road authorities.  There are several options to describe the type of safety problem, from "pavement condition" to "high traffic speed". Users can also upload photographs that will be sent directly to ODOT.  The app follows a strict privacy policy and users have total control over that the data they share. 

See maps with user routes and safety/crash reports

Hundreds of users across Oregon have shared their route data and uploaded hundreds of crash, near-miss, and safety reports. For a better and faster experience we recommend you use Google Chrome. The route map has millions of GPS coordinates and it may take a few seconds to upload for Region 1 (depending on the connection speed). Click on the links to see the route map and the report map. Trip beginnings and ends have been removed to protect users' privacy. 

Provide feedback to better design bicycle facilities (read data analysis)  

Transportation planners have had not enough data about the Oregon's cycling population and their routes. Further, there has been no systematic way to receive feedback regarding comfort, safety, or infrastructure issues. The ORcycle application has been designed in conjunction with ODOT to be used by transportation planners to better design or upgrade bicycle facilities. You can read about efforts to model how bicycle facilities and route stressors affect cyclists' comfort levels Modeling the Impacts of Facility Type, Trip Characteristics, and Trip Stressors on Cyclists’ Comfort Levels.pdf.
