Video Maps Of The World’s Bike Lanes

Well "world" is a bit of an overstatement, at least at the moment but it is still an interesting concept. Not sure if it will really expand worldwide but unless the technology behind it is very good.

What’s impressive, and most potentially useful about Cyclodeo, is that each section of the video is geocoded to match the map. That red line is a bike path. Click anywhere on the line to see the frame of the video that corresponds to what that exact part of the path looks like. The site also calculates the distance of that ride and the average speed. It adds up to a pretty solid picture of what a bike trip will be like, all available before you leave the house.
