Montpelier — Cyclists picking their routes in the Green Mountain State can use online maps to chart a smooth, clean ride.

Vermont’s Agency of Transportation and Department of Tourism and Marketing highlighted the resources in a joint news release Thursday.

The transportation agency, VTrans, has begun spring roadway sweeping, with an early emphasis on popular bike routes, the release said.

To see which state roadways have been swept, go to the Street Sweeping Progress Map, at https://goo.gl/zBfnT5.

The Vermont Bikeways Map, published by the Department of Tourism and Marketing, shows popular routes and facilities statewide, at https://goo.gl/obsfyf.

Using it in conjunction with the street sweeping map, bicyclists can find the easiest grades, best scenery and smoothest rides, the release said.

Cyclists also may want to check out the pavement condition map, which tracks the condition of state highways, and plans for upcoming repairs, at https://goo.gl/221bk3.

In an effort to improve the state’s cycling network, VTRans is upgrading corridors that have shown the most cycling traffic over time.

To see the most frequently traveled routes, see the agency’s Bicycle Corridor Priority Map, at https://goo.gl/vCx2UK.
