Bicycle Routes

Some thoughts on bicycle routes:
>  google maps bicycle feature is great for navigating short routes in cities because it helps with all of the one-ways and bike lanes, but for long distances there are just far too many small roads and turns
>  not all paper maps are of equal quality
>  asking locals provided some of the best directions
>  people always forget to tell you about construction
>  some bike paths are lovely and amazing, smooth and glorious diversions.  Sometimes they are super rough. Sometimes they are short, sometimes they go on forever, sometimes they are worth every minute and sometimes they’re totally not worth your time.
> tiny bike paths are ubiquitous, but convenient long paths are few and far between
> the Eastcoast Greenway is a joke
