Biking Directions Added To Google Maps
This interesting new feature adds "By Bike" to the car, walking, and transit option already available for finding directions on Google Maps. Testing it around Bend a bit, it seems to do a decent job of avoiding the hills and many of the busy roads around my house (I live near Pilot Butte) and finding alternative routes, but I'd be interested in what some of the bike commuters (Monkey Boy?) in the area think about what it's telling you. If I were to bike the commute from here to my office in Sunriver it'd be an interesting ride, especially considering I don't think those roads that Google Maps recommends riding are even there or ridable this time of year.
