    Bike Metro

    Not sure if this has been posted yet but this is a really cool site. Much like Yahoo! Maps or MapQuest but geared towards bikes (sorry for the pun).

    http://www.bikemetro.com/home/home.asp

    You put in to addresses and the site will map out a route between the addresses. Nothing special you say, right? Well the site also give you a profile of the route, very cool. But it also give you the amount of pollution a vehicle would produce along the route, the amount of calories one will burn along the route, and the amount of money one will save by riding the route rather than driving. Plus each these categories can be customized based on ones personal statistics. It's only for California right now but they are looking to expand.

    It is a cool site but when I tested it for a couple of routes it gave me the most horrible streets anyone can ride on.
