Google Maps adds ‘biking directions’

Google finally added biking directions & bike trail data to their maps application (U.S. only). Thanks to their partnership with the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, they already have more than 12,000 miles of trails mapped & ready for biking directions! They also have data on bike lanes and recommended streets for over 150 cities across the country. Just select “Bicycling” from the drop-down menu when you do a directions search.
