In case anyone's still checking out this forum.

There's a new bike app in town. It's still in its infancy stages, so needs help from all of you. They've decided to give incentives -- this week only -- for those of you willing to help with creating the bike safety map for St. Louis. It's called LaneSpotter & here's more info:

Want to help make across St. Louis a little bit safer and easier for everyone? Join the brand-new app LaneSpotter in The Great Rate. From Monday, October 23 through Sunday, October 29, cyclists from around the city will work together to create St. Louis’ first bike safety map. All you have to do is provide safety ratings on the roads you ride through LaneSpotter. Each time you rate a road, you’re entered to win a bunch of really cool bike-related prizes, including a brand new, Ibis Hakka MX gravel bike.

To get started with The Great Rate, visit https://www.thegreatrate.bike/stl/.

The result - a comprehensive bike safety map that can be used by everyone who bikes around St. Louis. Currently, the app is only available for iPhones, but don’t worry  — you can still contribute with the online map.  

And this is just the beginning. During the next six months, LaneSpotter will introduce features that will give you a real-time view of what your city looks like from a biking perspective. You’ll be able to easily find bike shops and more. You’ll also be able to create and receive alerts around bike lane closures and road conditions and be able to create, save and share your favorite routes. Think Waze for bikes, but more fun.
