Route Planning news

There are many better ways to plan a route than Google maps, especially for a cyclist. But I love it because it’s so FAST and so EASY to use.

However, I found a few new things today that make it better for route planning.

  1. It now has an “Avoid Highways” option, for those of you that don’t want to cycle on motorways!
  2. It now lets you go “via” somewhere…though this isn’t entirely clear. You can set a destination and then click “Add destination” button to go somewhere else. Though you can drag and drop your destinations around to re-order them. You can also use the syntax “to:destination” to add more destinations. e.g. “from:Swindon to:Marlborough to:Bath”
