This website is amazing for any of you cyclists out there. It is journey planner that is optimised for cyclists. It picks up on bridal ways etc. and even gives you a choice of the fastest or quietest routes (somehow it knows whether a road is busy or not). Not only that it gives you a trace of the hills and tries to minimise the amount of up hills. Brilliant stuff powered by OpenStreetMap. It has revealed a slightly different route home that could be quieter but the same distance. I am going to try it tonight and see how it goes.

There is also a iphone app which is reviewed at the Guardian.
