Mapping your Wellesley bike route

Machovka_BikerGoogle has added a bicycle route mapping feature to Google Maps. So say your daughter has her sights set on graduating from Wellesley High School and going straight to Wellesley College, here’s a selection of 1.8 to 2.3 mile routes that will take 11 to 13 minutes. Or if there’s someone you don’t like, you might send the person on a death-defying trip down Rte. 16 from Wellesley Square to Elm Bank Reservation.

The Google bicycle maps program is in beta testing. It features icons you can click on to get Google Earth pictures that zoom in on your route.
