Strava reveals Evanston's secret bike and pedestrian routes

You may have seen the story on how the fitness app Strava was revealing military secrets. Well, it is also tracking how cyclists and pedestrians (and even swimmers!) are moving through Evanston. Play with the interactive map here. The data likely says more about recreational runners/bikers that utility walkers/bikers, but still the map has a story to tell. Church St. pops out as an important corridor for east-west traffic. More needs to be done for West Evanston. 

Go Evanston is starting an initiative to make better connections between communities. Where do you think we need to make a better connection? Study the map, and let us know: [email protected].
