Elevation profile on Google bike directions

Check it out: Google Maps has added an elevation profile to their bicycle directions. The directions also tell you how much elevation you’ll gain and lose on the selected route.

My bike directions map mashup does the same thing, except it doesn’t work anymore. It looks like the Mapquest part of it is completely broken now. Oh well.

    Doesn’t seem to work that well. Apparently this counts as “mostly flat”: https://www.google.com/maps/@37.795101,-122.435035,3a,75y,176.45h,74.84t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sEIs0IFV2607duJY8-TNPIA!2e0

    Heh, Fillmore Street is “mostly flat.” That’s pretty good 🙂
