    The magazine hasn’t yet loaded the route onto its website. Whilst anyone with a bit of imagination could probably work out the details from the map in post #1, I’ll load the magazine’s efforts when I...

    Jolly good.

    Kurviger has just got better for you.

    It really is very good at suggesting routes, using its four pre-set parameters, A to B. Being able to drag the route to fine tune the...

    On a iPad if I ask Kurviger for London to Birmingham A to B, I get a single line. I can move the line by touching and dragging it. The point(s) I let of at gets what I’d call, a...
