Dark green indicates a dedicated bike-only trail; lighter green indicates a dedicated bike lane along a road; and dotted green line indicates roads that don’t have bike lanes but tend to be suitable for biking. Just like with driving directions, you can drag the route to customize your trip,” explains Google.
