Time, again, for Multi-Map Monday.
This map by the League of American Wheelmen is a little bland in execution. I've mainly included it because I'm pleased and a bit shocked that state-wide bicycle maps were created at one time. And that there was one made for Wisconsin [gmap] of all places... ?!
Relax, Wisconsin, I know many of y'all like your bikes. Just, I mean... all that snow and all. You'd think Florida would've got this map treatment before y'all. Come to think of it: for all I know, they did. Anyone else has any bicycle maps, then by all means send 'em all in: firstname.lastname@example.org.
