Google Maps, the go-to-place for directions to all destinations by car, by foot and by public transit, is now expanding their service to include maps for cyclists. Here’s how it works. From Google Map’s drop down menu choose “bicycling” to see your route on the map and get step by step directions by bike. The maps show bike trails with no motor vehicles, streets with bike lanes and other streets recommended for cyclists. Right now these maps are only available for cities in the US, but Google works at warp speed — it won’t be long before there’s a Google Bike Map for your neighbourhood.
Here’s the Google Bike Map promotional video.
