"Bicycle Friendly" Roads in
The "Bicycling Layer" of Google Maps (maps.google.com, shown below) has been populated to show "bicycle friendly" roads in our area, using dashed green lines. (Solid dark green lines show "bikeable" trails and paths, while lighter solid green lines show dedicated bike lanes within Philadelphia.) The bike-friendly roads are selected for casual, local cycling. They are generally “low traffic stress” routes that avoid major roads with heavy traffic and higher speed limits. Instead, these routings mainly use more pleasant, residential “minor” roads that penetrate local neighborhoods, offer parallel alternatives to major roads, cross major roads at the best places, and/or go past parks, schools and other attractions.
