Coming soon: MapQuest for bikers

I have a few friends who are biking enthusiasts, so this should interest them.
Just in time for Twin Cities residents turning to bicycles for transportation because of rising gas prices: a Web site designed by University of Minnesota researchers that's a sort of MapQuest for two-wheelers.

Like MapQuest, the U project called Cyclopath.org will generate a map telling you how to get from A to B, except the Cyclopath route will be bike friendly.

Unlike MapQuest, Cyclopath is also a geographic wiki, which any user can edit. On a block-by-block basis, you can add, change or correct the roads, paths, bike lanes and even alleys and sidewalks over the seven-county area and rate them for bikeability.
Check out their website for more info.
