Hey ladies and germs,

I'm looking for maps that bikes can use (we can't use all highways/bridges, etc., of course) for plotting pleasant training routes. I live in New York, and am itching to get out of the city in the spring.

Cheers,
Nige

They have an option that will let you eliminate all freeways and toll roads.

The little I've used it has produced some decent routes. I seem to have the best luck using primary research however. Caution- when using this method, be sure to have a fairly detailed road map in your pocket or you might end up riding 140 miles instead of 60.

Try the following link:

They specialize in maps for long distance touring, but I'm sure that any portions of this route that pass through your area would be suitable for training.

Try this NYC link to get you out of town. Hard copy maps are available from the City Planning department.

I really appreciate the links and info. Good stuff. I'll be riding new routes in no time, now.
