Missing road in Google maps - Chemin du Nordet, St Donat
The excellent Chemin du Nordet, a road through wilderness
We love cycling the Chemin du Nordet, an amazing recently-built road between St-Donat and Lac Superieur in the Laurentians.
This road is a favorite for cyclists looking for a Vermont-scale road in the laurentians, as well as for anyone looking for a Laurentians' road that isn't post-apocalyptic in its road-surface quality.
This road has been in existence for several years, but Google maps (and therefore Bikely) has steadfastly refused to acknowledge its existence. MS has had this road on their maps for years, which makes Google's omission that much more unbearable (and embarrassing for the all-knowing Google).
So, we looked into it, and found out how to report "new roads" to the Google's map supplier.
Now the clock is ticking, and we we see how long it takes the correction to show up on Google maps, and then on Bikely. We would hope it is mere hours, but it's more likely weeks and months! Stay tuned.
Note: if you want to ride this road, this link will get you the road on the Bing (MS) map. You should be aware that this is a hilly road (and that's a good thing).
