Milan publishes map of bike routes, BikeMI stations

In time for spring rides through Milan.

As spring approaches, bike enthusiasts now have a new tool to plan their excursions: a map of all of Milan’s bike paths and BikeMI stations.

The individually programmable and geolocated map can be downloaded onto mobile devices to be constantly aware of the nearest bike tracks and BikeMI pickup and drop-off points, as well as useful items such as nearby public water fountains and public conveniences.

The map – available here – is a new addition to the extensive city Geoportale, a vast collection of maps and other resources for studying everything from street numbers to world war two bomb damage, from noise levels to pharmacies, from flood risks to breast-feeding facilities, from libraries to help for migrants.

And for those who don’t have a bike of their own, BikeMI is Milan’s city-owned company open 365 days a year, offering 3,650 traditional bikes and another 1,000 power-assisted bikes with stations all across Milan, open from 07.00 to 01.00 during the week and even later on weekends or for special events.
