Super Easy Way to Find an Interesting Route

Or, I don't have anything to post, but I don't want to leave you hanging for too long.

Many of you are probably already aware of this. If you get directions from google maps, check "Avoid Highways" once your results come back. I use this feature a lot when I'm planning rides. I usually check the directions for dumb routing before I leave, but it's a great tool for finding the back way to another place.

What do you all use to find your way?

By the way, new pizza review tomorrow night.

Yep, I do that all the time. A great way to find new roads.

Sometimes I'll throw in a somewhat random waypoint just to purposely throw me off course.

Random waypoints are a good idea, I'll have to try that sometime.

I tried your suggestion and found a new route I hadn't thought of to get down to the southern Oregon coast. I think we're going to go that route this summer. Thanks for the google maps suggestion.

I'm glad it worked for you!

I gotta get myself some directions to the southern Oregon post...
