BikeMuse – Map of Bicycling Shops and Clubs

Here’s a interesting new Tour Planing Tool. The following note from BikeMuse that explains what it is and how it works:

About 6 months ago, Mapmuse.com began a project- the interactive
mapping of bicycle shops and cycling clubs across the US. We initially
researched and populated these maps ourselves, with the idea in mind
that cycling enthusiasts would subsequently add to, and enhance, the
information we provided. We mapped each bicycle shop and cycling club,
and provided space for a written description, photo, and link to a
website. Since this project was started, the public has made hundreds
of additions and enhancements to these maps. We now have one of the
most comprehensive databases of bicycle shops and cycling clubs in the
US. If you were one of our contributors, we’d like to thank you for
your help.

I’m posting today to ask that if you know of any bicycle shops or
cycling clubs that have started up or ended in the last 6 months, that
you make those changes to the maps. Also, please feel free to add any
bicycle shops or cycling clubs that we are still missing. You can make
changes through easy to use links on the site- if you have any
problems, see http://find.mapmuse.com/re1/mmFAQ.htm#A4 .

The link to the Bicycle shops Map is as follows:
http://find.mapmuse.com/interest/bike_shops

Cycling Clubs is:
http://find.mapmuse.com/interest/bike_clubs

If you are not familiar with MapMuse.com, we are a highly trafficked mapping website with an Alexa traffic rating of approximately 17,000 in the world. MapMuse’s goal is to help people find places related to their interests. MapMuse continues to add new topics of interest each week. If you have a topic that you would like to see mapped, you can suggest the interest on the MapMuse site, and there is a good chance it will be addressed.

Lastly, if you have a related blog, newsletter, or website, a link or a mention would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

I have tried this site and it a great concept. The location search doesn’t seem to be working yet, but you can get around that by selecting your state and just clicking on the area you are interested in. I was able to quickly zoom in on the NH Seacoast and locate all the Bicycle Shops, very nice and quite quick

This could be a great Tour Planning Tool and might get you out of serious trouble if you breakdown on the road and have the URL with you.

  1. Hello,

    I am looking at recumbent websites, to attempt locating someone who might be able to help me with a possible way to sell my Burley Django recumbent bike. I am not able to ride it and it is in excellent shape and quite a shame to let it sit in my basement. It is loaded with extras and I would like to find someone who might enjoy it? Would you be able to provide me with information on how I might be able to do this? I would appreciate any information you possibly have. Thank you in advance for your time.

    Sincerely,

    Dee AnnTodd
