PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

There are more and more bicyclists in the Valley and now there's a website to help them be aware of different incidents involving bicyclists and bicycles.

Bikemaps.org is a tool that lets people build a database by mapping their riding experience around town. Users can check the map for issues that have been reported by bicyclists. Those include bike thefts, dangerous intersections or where a bicycle rider was hit or nearly hit by a driver.

There are also iOS and Android apps.

The map is good for spots all over the world.
