Default Virtual Bike Tour for your City?

Here is a great way fo residents local to Palo Alto to entertain their
out of town guests. It is also an excellent tool that Palo Alto
businesses can use to sell a
visit to their places of commerce.

It requires Firefox or Safari......

To do a Virtual Bike Tour for your city first of all you will need
Firefox (a far better browser that you can download he
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html ) then you will want to
compile a list of all the sights to see in your city. Number them. On a
separate sheet of paper draw a rough map of your city as a box with
major streets forming the edges. On this "map", plot the numbers you
have assigned to the points of interest. Then connect all of them with a
line (your route). Transfer this information to our map and you have a
virtual tour for your city!

Bonus points for any editorial you can add later about the stops you
will have chosen!

Here is the written instruction set for how to use our maps:
