Write down starting time in notebook. Write down finishing time in
notebook. Go to Google Maps, ask for directions along your chosen
route. Write down distance.

Apply third-grade math.

Asking for BICYCLING directions on Google Maps can often have you riding
WAY out of your way if you follow them.

Gogle mpas are so car orientated. There is always a (or more)better
bicycle route.

When I use Google Maps to
calculate the distance on a planned ride I right click on the map at
where I'm starting from and then add markers at various points alone the
route I plan to ride.

Otherwise I find that Google Maps will often
deviate from the shortest route to take a route that uses a rail-trail
or other off-road facility and those deviations can add many miles to a
route.

Over here, it frequently will have you travelling 1,000 miles on sealed
roads as opposed to 10miles on a gravel road.

Whatever did people do before Google Maps? I can remember driving
across the United States twice without any maps at all.

Look in the atlas, fill tank and go. I've been all over this
country never having used an electronic device. YMMV.

All the 'tough' guys say they don't need electronic assistance and

all they need is a glance at a paper map once in a while. Sure that
is possible but electronic assistance makes it a hell more convenient.
First time in the US, mid 80's, I drove form NYC to LA only using a
Rand Mcnally atlas; one page per state. It was possible but it took me
quite a while to get out of NYC. Last time a got a Garmin with my
rental and driving was much more relaxing.

https://www.name-doctor.com/name-Cha...alo-46764.html

germanic / latin

NAME ROOT:
*GUNTHO / *GUNşIZ SALVUS / SAIWALA GUNDISALVUS

MEANING:
This name derives from the Medieval Latin and Germanic (Visigoth)
name "Gundisalvus", composed of two elements: the Germanic element
"guntho / *gunşiz\u201d (battle, fight, act of killing, blow, to
strike) plus the Latin word \u201csalvus\u201d (safe, well, unharmed,
untouched, saved, healthy, intact). The second element, however, could
also be attributed to the Germanic (Gothic) "saiwala", meaning "soul,
spirit". The popular meaning is "one who assists in battle". Saint
Gonzalo (or Gundisalvus) (~1040\u20131108), a medieval Galician
nobleman and clergyman, was the long-serving Bishop of Mondoñedo from
1071.

Do you suppose those E. Indians are speaking Latin?

I'll put in a plug for a compass, too. Even when I have a GPS going,
unless I'm mindlessly following the instructions of the electronic lady
inside the thing, it's sometimes nice to know which direction I'm
pointing. Google Maps makes a guess, but it's plus or minus about 60
degrees.

The compass on the dash of my car has been quite handy at times, and the
ones on each bike have been even more useful.

You're fortunate to have never run into an area where there was a bunch of magnetite or other similar mineral. VBEG

I measured my route with a knotted string.

That would be quicker than Google Maps if I could buy paper maps.

Once I'd gotten around to knotting the string.

I use dividers on my topographical maps. The only problem sometimes is that the maps don't show newer roads or disused roads are overgrown and not really visible from the road I'm on. That's where I want a very accurate bicycle computer. ABck in the 1980s I loved my Cateye computer (either the Cateye Solar or the Cateye Micro depending on which bike I was using) as they were so accurate measuring distance traveled. The Cateye Solar even had an alarm function that could be set for distance. Thus, I could set the alarm for the distance to the next road and the computer would beep when that distance was covered. It sure made it easier to find those overgrown roads. Usually it was just the entrance to the road that was overgrown and once past that and on the road it wasn't too bad if you had wide tires such as the 26" x 2.125" knobby tires I used and use on logging/mining roads in Northern Ontario Canada.

Frank even the simpliest GPS can tell you in what direction one drives or rides. It is one datafield on my GPS based cycling computer.In the map screen there is always an arrow visible pointing to the north:
