As everyone knows, Google Maps rocks. Today I discovered a useful hack: a tool for computing bike/run distances. I used it to map my route from this morning, and I discovered that I biked a solid 31.5 kilometres. Additionally, there is a Google Maps overlay with all the New York City subway on it. These are both incredibly useful tools, and they show the potential for rich web applications.
