Regular Back Talk reader Dallas May passed along this tidbit recently: With a click, your Google maps now identify bicycle trails in our neighborhoods.

You can also visit Google maps as you normally would when looking for vehicle routes, then click on the "more" link located on the top of each map page, and click the "bicycling" box to turn on bicycle trails on the map you’re already viewing.
