    Bicycle Oriented GPS Routing

    I notice there are bike racks for iPhones. I tried my routing software many years ago, back when I had to devise my own bike mount. My phone kept trying to put me on the busiest streets like I am a car!

    Well it may not give you turn by turn voice routing, but google maps has a bicycle selection. Do iphones support google maps?

    Of course the major caveat to using google maps bike mode is that google maps just about considers any path, including worn dirt paths, a bike route. I know it thinks my local canyons are bike routes and they are far from such. Google IS getting better though... I just checked this morning and it is now showing dirt with a brown line... I guess that's an improvement.
