Bicycle Coalition Works With Google Maps

Bicycle Coalition Works With Google Maps

We have posted two maps that overlay data over Google Maps "Bicycle Coalition GMAPS" if you will. The first is a map of bike lanes (red lines) and major multi-use trails (blue lines) in the region. The second is a compilation of Bicycle Coalition Commuter routes.

Commuter Routes

These maps are a precurser to a much more ambitious project. We have partnered with several bicycle advocacy organizations and individuals across the country to create an easy to implement bicycle route planner which will allow you to type in your start point and end point a get a bicycle route. There are two examples in this country Bike Metro in the Los Angeles Area and prototype bicycle trip planner for Portland Oregon.
