I’ve often thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a MapQuest for bike routes?” Turns out there is! I came across this link to the byCycle Trip Planner on the Sellwood Cycle Repair website. The Planner is still very much under development, but I have great hopes for this tool. As of now, it is a pretty basic “Point A to Point B” resource. But in the future it will give riders the ability to customize their results according to distance, less hills, less traffic, etc. Very cool. The developers are interested in adding more cities to the Planner list which currently includes Portland OR, Milawaukee WI, and Pittsburgh PA.
