Bike Routing in Sweden
Trafiken.nu is a well thought out new bike route planning map for western Sweden. Enter a starting point and destination into the map and Trafiken will return a suggested bike route and an elevation chart of the route.
The map includes the locations of bike sharing stations with live bike availability data, bike stands, bike shops and pumping stations. The routing of the bike directions is built upon the Leaflet Routing Machine, an open source routing plug-in for the Leaflet mapping library. The plug-in itself includes geocoding support, the editing of start, waypoints and end points and the displaying of routes.
