Virtual Bike Route Scouts

Ever been stuck in traffic while a bike commuter breezes past you with a big smile on her face? Or maybe you’ve seen someone merrily riding along, with groceries in his bike bags? If you’re interested in commuting or shopping by bike but aren’t sure how to find a bike-friendly route that will work for you, Virtual Bike Route Scouts can help!

Just answer a few queries about your riding preferences so that your Route Scout can craft a route you’ll enjoy. Based on your answers, you’ll receive a suggested route complete with turn-by-turn directions, total distance, estimated travel time, and descriptions of hills along the way (if any). All you have to do is enjoy your new route!

Before you request a route, check out some of of popular routes here. Didn’t find what you’re looking for? Click here to request the route you’re looking for in San Mateo County or Santa Clara County.

Enjoy the ride!
