New version of bike map steers riders to trails
King Countys Bicycling Guidemap has been re-published to help bike riders find places to pedal away winter doldrums get exercise.
The free map is a guide to bicycling roads, trails and facilities throughout the county. Its first significant update since 1998 was paid for through Group Health Cooperative and the countys transportation and parks departments.
Officials said the redesigned map is easier to read and includes information such as locations of landmarks, trail access points and public restrooms. Copies are available at King County libraries and select retail locations, as well as on-line. A link to the countys Web site is available through The Mirrors on-line edition at www.fedwaymirror.com.
King County has more than 100 miles of paved trails and nearly 70 miles of unpaved trails that can be used by bicyclists, county officials note.
The map helps promote a healthier lifestyle by getting us to take advantage of the wonderful recreational facilities in this county, said County Executive Ron Sims.
