Riding with the Google Bike Map Makers

Rode over this morning from Fremont to the Bike Expo – whole time talking about mapping, directions, routes, and bike safety. On the left is Andy Schwerin. He coded the Rev 1 bike directions algorithm. To the right is Andrew Gove. He’s an engineer on the project.

Andy told me his original idea was to help cyclists get from point a to b. Much later, Google released Bike Maps.
