Bicyclists planning routes throughout the state can now use an editable, interactive online map called Cyclopath to help customize their trips. according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says Cyclopath is designed to find bicycle routes using ratings from other bicyclists. Originally launched in 2008 in the Twin Cities, the tool is now available statewide.
Bicyclists can select the type of route they prefer, including routes that favor trails and bikes lanes, routes with the highest user ratings or with the shortest distance between two points.
Cyclopath also contains MnDOT's complete road network and most of its trails. As new bicycle infrastructure gets added, bicyclists can edit the map to reflect changes to the bicycle network as soon as they happen.
