SF to Boston ride to also Call for Mapping Innovation

Martin Krieg's proposed bicycle map web site solves an important problem: showing cyclists the best way to get from point A to B. Currently very few internet map services provide any cycling-specific information, and most that do are restricted to specific service areas.  Martin's ingenious idea is to get data directly from cyclists themselves, enabling the site to provide cycle-specific route data for any place on the planet.  His plan will make it easy and fun to enter favorite routes, and also protect users' privacy by avoiding exposure of their home address as an end-point of their routes. <snip> Dave Hershberger Former Google Engineer, more
