Ever since Google Maps added directions for cyclists, I’ve been a very regular user.
Google Maps does a fairly good job of choosing a bike friendly route and it’s a pretty good interface.
However, as a cyclist and someone who likes to complain about things, there are a few additions I’d love to see.
On a recent short weekend away in Maidenhead, we decided to visit the Cliveden National Trust. Google Maps was soon up on the phone and we tapped to get our directions.
Laden with our backpacks, we started our cycle. Soon we were face to face with a rather tough uphill.
Now I don’t mind an uphill challenge, but it’s nice to receive a little warning.What changes would you make to Google Maps, as a cyclist?
