Google Maps adds bicycling directions in Charlotte

Posted on 10 Mar 2010 by Justin Ruckman

Google unveiled bicycling directions in their Maps application today during the National Bike Summit in Washington.

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit that creates trails from old rail lines, has partnered with Google to provide bike trail information in over 150 US cities, including Charlotte.

The new cycling maps show routes including dedicated bike trails, bike lanes, and bike-friendly roads.

    This would be great, if Charlotte was actually a bicycle-friendly city.

    this is actually interesting news to hear. i havent heard about any kind of group making or maping out bike trails around the city for people and the google map helps alot. this is very helpful hopefully i can find some good trails around my area in charlotte it would be cool to bike down a abandoned rail track.
