Toronto’s bicycle routes to be plotted on Google Maps

Earlier this year Google Maps introduced Bike Directions, a feature that flags bike-friendly routes for cyclists in U.S. cities. Yesterday Google announced that this popular feature will now be available in nine Canadian cities: Ottawa, Toronto, Waterloo, Gatineau, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and Kelowna.

The Canadian Bike Directions feature will be officially launched later this week. It will eventually be available countrywide, but is starting with the nine major Canadian cities that shared their bike route data with Google.
