Create Your Own Bicycle Map

Bicycle Maps

Would you like to learn the location of the closest paved trail to your home or the nearest streets containing bicycle lanes?  You've come to the right place!

MetroPlan Orlando’s interactive bicycling map system allows you to create a map using streets and paths which best serve your needs.

The mapping system allows you to view several layers of information.  You can turn layers on and off by selecting and expanding elements in the Map Contents window.  Available layers include: trails (shared use paths), streets with bike lanes and paved shoulders, streets with wide curb lanes, interaction levels (a measure of how much interaction with motor traffic the on-roadway bicyclist can expect), short connector paths, overpasses and underpasses, and neighborhood routes.

After you have selected the information layers you need, you can zoom and pan to your geographic area of interest, measure trip distance, and print a customized map of your creation.

Make sure to use the Help, Legend Explanation and Disclaimer links at the top of the mapping application for more information.
