That
is very cool. (I've been intrigued with google maps mashups since I saw
the craigslist/gmaps site.) I was amazed to find a dozen or so routes
already created for my little town (I guess we've got an early adopter
here!)

I entered my favorite run - Blueberry Hill, Williamstown, MA.

Does anyone know if there is anything similar for bicyclists?

"There
is a ""grassroots"" site for bikes that has limited coverage (Milwaukee,
Portland OR, and maybe Pittsburgh). It's trying to become more of an
interactive trip planner rather than a route storage database.

As with most any grassroots effort, any contribution, suggestion or comment is welcome.

Cool. Too bad I'm not in any of those cities :(
I'm
not a hardcore biker by any means. But it would be cool to be able to
plan a route that takes you back to your starting point, with options
for distance, flatness, traffic, and bike paths/routes (and maybe even
""scenic-ness"").
Thanks :) "
