Google Bike Directions!

Day’s Verse:
But Peter and John replied, “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God. For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
Acts 4:19-20 (context)

The entire biking community is in a tizzy over Google’s new biking directions on Google Maps. The League of American Bicyclists’ blog reported on it today, and of course the Seattle Times covered the fact that six Google engineers from Fremont created the system. Then there’s the women’s cycling forum I occasionally check in on; they always have lots of opinions on nearly everything, and Google Maps biking directions is no exception.

Personally, I think that anything that gets people on their bikes, even if it’s not perfect, is a step in the right direction.

Speaking of getting people on bikes, I got myself on my Xtracycle today and rode to the Bellevue Transit Center, my first ride after the crash. What I used to take for granted will, at least for a while, feel like a real accomplishment.
