Anyone seen this? I haven't played with it much, but it looks pretty cool!

I applaud Google for making this effort. It's in the first stages now and has some flaws, but I'm sure this will be improved before long. One problem I found was that it mapped 100+ route though many gravel roads. Then again I also mapped a short ride I often take and it listed the nearly exact route I take to bike it.

Bikes: At one point it was a Trek 700 something. Now it have Velocity Psycho wheels, a tape job. Thumb shifters (Shimano Deore). Corncob grouping, and drop bar ends all wrapped up in tape.

I routed from chicago, il to galena, il. I found that there is a dirt/gravel road crossing a good part of illinois.
