Maps are fun. I like finding funny place names. Of course we all love Google Maps. Did you bike riders notice the latest innovation which is the ability to map your route by bicycle? Through the magic of algorithms, the less-trafficked roads with shoulders are given priority.
At Google Maps, after selecting Get Directions, click the little bicycle icon. Unfortunately only 150 cities have been “bicycle mapped”. Atlanta is included but Athens is not. Here’s the list of cities. Obviously the thing to do is to send Google a message, many messages, and urge them to get Athens on the list.
