Google Bicycles

Google Maps now supports better bike routs where cyclists can get the quickest, and flattest, route between Point A and Point B.

I’ve biked from my home to Downtown Indy many times in the past. I tried a Google Map search for a “better” route and it quickly put me off on to other roads. While it’s a longer distance, the roads it chose for me are flatter, wider and have less traffic than (my albeit shorter) route I used to take.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.
