Bicycling Directions, Courtesy of Google Maps

Posted Mar 12 2010 12:01pm

Couplebiking Bicyclists have been waiting for this: Google Maps now includes bicycling directions alongside its driving, walking, and public-transportation options. Partnering with the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy , it has added information about more than 12,000 miles of bike trails and 150 bike routes in cities. The directions distinguish between bike-only trails, roads with dedicated bike lanes, and “bike-friendly” streets. Riders are steered clear of obstacles like steep hills and busy roads.
