Google Maps Bike There…for a safer, healthier, happier world. :-)

I am told that “the best recumbent site in the Netherlands has a newsitem” on our site:

Google maps met fietsinformatie?(10-3-2008) Google maps met fietsinformatie?

Er is een werkgroep gestart in Februari die graag de informatie in Google maps uitgebreid wil krijgen voor de fiets. Interessant!

Google Translate says that this is German for:

Google Maps with Radinformationen? (10-3-2008) Google Maps with Radinformationen?

In February, a working group went to work, which like Google Maps for information for cyclists extended wishes. Interesting!

I’m assuming the ‘Radinformationen’ (a translation of ‘fietsinformatie’) stands for ‘bike information’.

Check out the cool little recumbent Google logo.

Hey - it may be the only recumbent site I know of, but it’s obviously the best! :)

Thank you,!

  1. They speak Dutch in the Netherlands, not German. :-) That’s why you got the gibberish about fietsinformatie.

    “Google maps with bike information?
    There is a working group that started in February which would like Google Maps to include information about bike routes.”

    Hi Jamie,

    I did expect it to be Dutch, but the google translate page doesn’t translate it at all when you choose that option. When I translated it from German, though, most of it came out ok.

    But, I’ll take your word for it! :)
