Bicycling Directions Now on Google Maps
Google Maps now has an option to get directions recommended for bicycling! To try it out, I put in my home and work addresses. Unfortunately, it suggested that I ride 0.2 miles on Northwest Highway. No thanks. I’ve done it before but I’d rather avoid it if I can. I don’t want to get arrested, after all.
Dragging the route around to try and get better directions, at one point it suggested riding on Central Expressway. “Bicycling directions are in beta.” Yeah, no kidding. They do suggest using some of the bike trails in the area, like the KT, which is nice. I wonder if there is any chance we could get the official Dallas Bike Plan routes into their system.
It also suggested an interesting alternative for getting from the KT to the Infomart. That’s one of the trouble spots on my current route so I may have to give this one a try.
