State Bike Map is now ON LINE

The Oregon State Bike Map, previously only avialable in print, has taken a giant leap into the 21st century: It's now a GIS based map, with up to date data and is now avialable ON LINE, as well as in print.

Check it out:

We've still working out a few bugs, and learning what to do better from this 1st version. Please send us your comments and reviews. A pdf of the legend, for example, will be added soon, (it's currenlty only on tile number 2.)

Also - if you would like paper copies of this or any of our other maps - call 503-986-3556 and follow the directions.
