The Big Map isn’t all that big, especially so far. It’s just a map to show the various loops on as the posts accumulate. Once the core of the county is on the Big Map, each loop and the road segments on that loop will be added to the Big Map as the posts are generated, so the Big Map will serve as a visual index to the posts on the site.
There are many roads I don’t ride on because they have lots of traffic or aren’t very interesting. If I were touring or commuting, I might feel differently about them. They also belong on the Big Map. The Big Map should eventually evolve into a useful interactive county bike map.
