TrailBlaze Chicago

Motivation and approach

TrailBlaze Chicago is an app for Android-owning bikers living in the Chicago area. If that includes you, you're lucky enough to live in one of the most bike-friendly big cities in America. Chicago has worked hard to make itself a comfortable place to ride, and will continue to do so - but how will they know where new paths are needed most if you don't tell them? Now, you can help! TrailBlaze Chicago records and anonymously reports your tracks, allowing to vote for new paths simply by carrying your phone while you do what you love. It also provides a dashboard with distance, speed, and a handy map, and allows you to review routes you've previously reported.
