Google just added to their Google Maps a way to search for directions via bike. Just go to Google Maps and click on ‘Bicycling Directions” or ‘Bike There’ link. This new service shows you options to get from one location to another via bike paths in that area. This was a joint effort with multiple bicycle organizations including Rails to Trails Conservancy that support about 12,000 miles of bike trails.
This is a great link to share with friends and colleagues who would like to bike but not sure the best route to take that is safe and on designated trails.
