Bikers seem to get the shaft when it comes to location services more often than not, but Google is changing all that with the latest change to Google Maps today. The updated application will now allow users to navigate biking trails in case they’re getting around on the emissions-friendly vehicle.
Google uses the crowd-sourced Map Maker program to allow you and your rolling peers to lay out safe tracks, pathways, and street lanes for biking to get to a certain place. Hundreds of cities are supported, and with the help of Rails-to-Trails and other nonprofit organizations more will be added over time. Find the updated app in the Play Store here. [Google]
