Good Roads for Bikes on Google Maps
The Cyclist's Road Map is a crowd-sourced Google Map for cyclists that provides a handy guide about the quality of roads around the world.
Cyclists can submit reviews of roads based on the quality of the road surface, scenery and the amount of traffic on a road. Roads that have already been rated are color-coded on the map, green indicates roads that have been recommended by other cyclists and red indicates that the road has been deemed to be a bad road for cycling.
If a user selects an individual road on the map they can view the road's overall rating and also view the road's individual ratings for the road surface, scenery and traffic levels.
