Best Biking Roads used to be great for planning trips, but not now

Oh no. Was has happened to BBR? It used to be fantastic when planning a trip, say across France where you used to be able to click on 'France' and see suggested routes right across the country. You could then see at a glance a likely good route and base your trip planning on that. It was excellent. Now, I cannot find that overview for France, but instead have to look at region by region, so I have lost that overview. That now makes BBR almost usable for long trip planning. Or am I missing something? Where has the overview of a country gone?

Hi there
Thanks for your post.
The country overview page now shows the heat map of routes by default.
But if you click the left button below the map you will see the complete country map overview of routes that you are looking for.
It is shown like this because Google now charges fees to show the map so it is not shown by default (previously it was free)
I hope you enjoy my project,.

Hi David, Perfect! I now understand why you did that, but that is hard to spot. I can however continue my route planning with ease! Thank you! Gary.

Hi there,
I have removed the heatmap from the country overview page now based on your feedback.
Do you think it's easier to use now?
Feedback welcome.
David

Hi David,

Yes it's much easier to use because the whole country map is right there. To me, that makes much more sense.

Thanks you and have a great weekend,

Gary.
