Hi everybody,
I am new to the site. I saw this webite listed as a good way to map routes and avoid highways that we shouldn't be riding on. Has anyone used this site? and how reliable is it?

        I tried to use it but couldn't figure out how to get USA to come up and input a route from Pittsburgh to Sandusky. If you get to work let me know.

I just gave it a shot using your endpoints (Pittsburgh and Sandusky) and got a message that said it could not compute a trip over 200 km. When I changed Sandusky to Erie, PA, it worked just fine. Oddly enough though, that route came out to 201 km...

    Thanks Jenn. I used Pittsburg to Cleveland and it worked but I don't want to go to Cleveland but I've gotten other help.

So what are you using to plot your route?

This is a great example of how I think the 200 km restriction would make using this web tool a real hassle if you were going very far. On the other hand, it could be helpful when approaching and traversing urban areas.
