Google Street View has taken us through our own neighborhoods, down Olympic ski slopes, and even inside art museums. Now, it’s taking us where cars can’t go using the Trike, a bicycle outfitted with street view equipment to pedal around areas where cars can’t go.
The Trike has been collecting data since 2009, and Google recently introduced the new images to street view. Castles, gardens, parks, even Stonehenge are included, giving users a close view of places they may never have the opportunity to see in person. Off-road locations on Google Maps are designated by the same blue outline that designates Street View on streets.
