Want to Hit the Bike Trials? Check Google Maps

 It's been nice out for the past couple of days and you may want to break out the bicycle.  Before you step on the pedals, check out Google Maps.

Google is now including bike trails in its maps.   Click on "bicycling directions" on the left hand side of the Google maps page.  Just enter your destination like you would in any other Google map.  For example, Fairport to Pittsford.  The bike path winds right along the Erie Canal.

Most of the bike trails around here follow the canal but there are a few other trails off the beaten path like the Hojack Trail in Webster.

One disclaimer: some bicyclists in other cities say some Google paths may not be the best way to go.  Some led bicyclists straight to busy highways.  So best advice: keep your eyes on the path.
