Cycling Cue-Sheets For the Masses!

Today I'm releasing a feature on veloroutes that will take the route you create and generate turn-by-turn directions automatically! Here's an example of the output for a route I clicked:

Cue sheet for downtown to the ave

key: -:straight, R:right, L:left, Rev:reverse

Total distance: 4.97 miles


yeah, you could take eastlake for a less-hilly route, but fuck that! let’s do some hills!

You can read more about this feature on the veloroutes forum post about it. If you want to go ahead and create your route go to the map.

(If you haven't heard of veloroutes, check it out! It's actually run by a cyclist (me), unlike some another bike-mapping site run by a corporation. And now it generates cue-sheets like that other mapping site that used to be really popular, but seems to be constantly broken. Sure, those other sites may have pretty designs, but my site's got heart!)
