Route Planning

A Metro Vancouver cycling route-planning tool being developed by Cycling in Cities and TransLink.

Cycling in Cities is a program of research investigating
  • which factors encourage or discourage the use of bicycles for urban transportation, and
  • which types of transportation infrastructure are associated with increased or decreased risks of injuries to cyclists.
It has a maximum slope option, and it shows the severity of the slopes along the calculated route. If I ask it to give me directions from home to work and set the maximum slope gradient to 9%, it tells me No direct route. It shows you the mean NO2 level for the route (measured in ppb.) as well.
