Google Adds Bike Maps to Canadian Cities

It’s been talked about in the Canadian media for some time now, but, as Google LatLong reported yesterday, Google Maps’s bicycling layer for Canadian cities — Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge, Ottawa-Gatineau (including a bike trail out in my area), and Toronto — is now live. The bike routes are colour-coded: “Dark green indicates a dedicated bike-only trail; lighter green indicates a dedicated bike lane along a road; and the dotted green line indicates roads that do not have bike lanes but tend to be suitable for biking.”
