If I click on Google Streetview all I get is a blank screen, even for roads. At the bottom it says 'loading', but never seems to. Is there a link missing?

Unfortunately Google appear to have changed the (unofficial) link format! I’m trying to work out what the new format is – will fix it as soon as I can find out.

Hi Richard

I'm also having a problem whereby the 'Find Photos' link of a saved route is failing to load the photo. When I click on it for a particular (yellow dotted) part of the route the photo appears for a nano second then disappears. Is this the same issue that you are trying to resolve with the google link format?

You have a fantastic site by the way. I have had days of pleasurable rides on quiet scenic routes thanks to your superb route planner.

Kind regards,

Both should be fixed now! I was wrong – it wasn’t Google changing the link format, it was an artefact of upgrading the mapping library (Leaflet) I use on the site to the latest version. Sorry for the hassle and really glad you like the site – hearing that people have had good rides is the best feedback!

Many thanks, Richard. Yes, it's working fine now.

Best Regards,

Many thanks for the prompt fix.

I'd just like to say what a wonderful resource this site is. I now use it for all my cycle route planning. The ability to identify accommodation near the route, check what the road looks like has taken a lot of the uncertainty out of cycle touring. I recently planned a 2 week tour in The Netherlands and it gave me a faultless and fabulous route.
