An organization that crowd-sources cycling collision and danger data wants to know if its map is making you feel better about cycling.

BikeMaps.org – a project partially funded by the federal government to the tune of approximately $930,000 – has been collecting citizen-reported cycling collision data in the area since early this year.

The stats are accessible through their app or website on a worldwide mapping system, which breaks down when and where cycling collisions occurred. It also shows near-misses, hazards, bike thefts and if an official police report was made.
