Link to Google Satellite Maps

Use the Link to Google Satellite maps to explore your neighborhood and the great rides over to Dover Sound and Barbary Beach. You can also get distances for the Grand Bahama Bike Routes shown on the map. Lots of fun. Visitors have posted a lot of pictures on the map, too.

Grand Bahama is one of the nicest places to bike.....if you stay off the main roads! Fortunately there are some great "through the neighborhood routes" that can get you from downtown to some great destinations like Banana Bay, Garden of the Groves, Barbary Beach, Dover Sound. All of these routes were discovered using Google Maps. The street maps of the island are not reliable as many of the streets on the maps don't exist but the Google satellite image is pretty clear.

Click on the maps to see them full screen and for printing.

The big map prints out pretty small but can give you an overall of where you are headed. The "route chunks" can be printed out with good detail. Enjoy and feel free to add new routes to places you bike to.

We have this Freeport to Casurina Bridge Route extended to Dover Sound Observatory Hill as well as to Barbary Beach and you can explore them by using the Link to Google Satellite Maps on the right side of this blog.

If you are interested in exploring, we are trying to find a Non-highway route from the Bridge to Macleans town. We have have one laid out on Google now (with a side route to Water Cay dock) but we need to get a little group together to make the first attempt....and probably break it into a couple days??
