The Guardian publishes Melbourne Bike Crash Map

The Guardian just published our Melbourne Bike Crash Map:
"Researchers from the Institute of Transport Studies at Monash University have mapped five years of cycling accidents in Melbourne. The red circles are crashes, the density of the blue layer shows the number of cyclists based on information from the cycling app Strava. You can read more about the map and see more graphics based on the same figures at the Monash ITS site."

Herald Sun features Melbourne Bike Crash Map

A Herald Sun article on "Cyclists want chunk of Chapel St to be a bike-only zone" features our Melbourne Bike Crash Map.
"Monash University’s civil engineering department has developed an online map showing bicycle crashes in Melbourne, using VicRoads data from 2008-13. It showed 6219 cycle crashes in that time. Beach Rd tops the list, followed by Nepean Highway, St Kilda Rd and Sydney Rd. Chapel St was sixth on the list, with 91 accidents."
