Where would Dayton put Bike share stations?

Playing around with Google maps, I put together a phase 1 implementation for the Dayton Bcycle project.

Keys were places with large numbers of people who probably drove there (major employers), destinations for eating, entertainment, access to bikeways, event venues, places where young people congregate.

It’s far from perfect, but, it gives a starting point for analyzing what we would need, and where.

Afterthought, maybe should show what a bike share station looks like:

This reminds me of some of the freshman conceptional art projects I saw back in my art school days.

Put one here (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=39.7685,-84.1932) too.  Fairly convenient for Russ’s Market, the Miami Valley Fair Housing Center, and Temple Israel.

I think a couple things to consider when placing these points of interests are parking space. If someone to come from the surrounding communities would need to find parking close to the bike hub. That should be a good indicator for hot spots. Any of the parks in the metro area: Island, Deeds, Riverscape, Eastwood, Veterans Parkway.

Also, access to the bike paths would be beneficial, at least in the short run, once the bike lanes are added in after the reconstruction of downtown roadways. Definitely see more potential along those routes too.
