After a long wait and more than 50,000 signatures on an online petition, cyclists will be happy to know that Google Inc. has finally added bicycle routes to Google Maps. In Google Maps, users can now find "Bicycling" in the tool's "Get Directions" drop-down box. After choosing the option, bikers can input two addresses and find the bike route that will get them to their destination. The mapping tool provides turn-by-turn directions and an estimated travel time. The new Google Maps bicycling feature is available in 150 U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.

OAKLAND - The Clippers seemed weighed down Sunday afternoon in Game 4 by all the controversy that has engulfed them. And even though it was not of their own making, but that of owner Donald Sterling, the Clippers were in the storm and tried to stay afloat. But they could not avoid their albatross and a hot Golden State team, dropping a 118-97 decision to the Warriors at Oracle Arena. BOX SCORE: Golden State Warriors 118, Clippers 97 Instead of talking about the best-of-seven first-round series being tied at 2-2 or about regaining home-court advantage with their Game 3 win, the Clippers had to talk about Sterling's alleged racist comments about African Americans.

More DASH routes will be running Friday in downtown Los Angeles and Mid-City after an employee strike caused 13 routes to be suspended. Ten routes remained offline Friday, but limited service has returned to the Downtown Route A, Lincoln Heights/Chinatown and Crenshaw lines. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 572, went on strike Thursday morning over a contractual dispute with Veolia Transportation. The company operates DASH routes downtown and in certain areas of South L.A. and Hollywood under contract with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation.  LADOT cannot be involved in such a dispute between Veolia Transportation and its employees, said LADOT spokesman Clinton Quan.

Airline mergers have put more than 70% of the nation's domestic traffic in the hands of four major carriers. But low-cost airlines still have some influence over airfares. A new study shows that when airlines such as JetBlue, Spirit, Frontier, Alaska and Southwest launch service on an existing domestic route, the average price from all carriers drops as much as 67%. It's good news for travelers, but aviation experts say most popular routes are still dominated by the four biggest carriers: United, Delta, Southwest and the soon-to-be-merged American and US Airways.

Riccardo Cassin, who was a legendary Italian alpinist fondly known as "Il Padre," has died. He was credited with more than 2,500 climbs and 100 first ascents around the world and discovered routes that 70 years later are still considered benchmarks reserved only for the sport's elite. Cassin, who started a premier climbing-equipment company in 1947, died Aug. 6 at his home in Piani Resinelli, a town north of Milan. He was 100. During a 60-year career, Cassin led hundreds of expeditions, including treks through the Alps, the Himalayas, the Caucasus and the Andes.

Google Maps for the iPhone is getting smarter thanks to a new feature that will recommend quicker routes to users as they drive. "Outsmart traffic and save time on the road -- #GoogleMaps will notify you if there's a faster route," the Silicon Valley company said Tuesday morning after updating the Apple iOS version of its app with the new feature.  As iPhone users drive, Google Maps will account for traffic and road conditions. If the app finds a quicker way to users' destinations, it will let users know how much time the new route could save them.

NEW YORK - The Angels did not require the services of a closer Friday night. An offense that administered a rare beatdown of starter Hiroki Kuroda and pounded reliever Bruce Billings into submission in a 13-1 shellacking of the New York Yankees - the largest-ever margin of victory for the Angels in Yankee Stadium - made sure of that. The Angels crushed four home runs - a two-run shot to center field by Ian Stewart, a solo shot to left by Albert Pujols, a three-run shot to right-center by Erick Aybar and a solo shot to left by Collin Cowgill - to increase their major league-leading total to 35. With five more games this month, the Angels have broken the franchise record of 34 homers in April, set in 2000.

WASHINGTON -- President Obama, on his way to a weeklong trip to Asia, is headed to Washington state Tuesday to survey damage from the landslide and meet with survivors, first responders and local officials one month after the tragedy. More than 40 people died in the disaster, which claimed more than two dozen homes on the outskirts of Oso, a small town an hour's drive from Seattle. The medical examiner's office is still working to identify victims of the devastation. The visit will be Obama's only domestic stop on his way to Asia, where he plans to talk about trade opportunities with foreign leaders and discuss the U.S. role in regional security.

Resoundingly and emphatically, the Clippers responded to the challenge presented to them in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series by winning in historic fashion Monday night at Staples Center. Blake Griffin answered the call with a playoff career-high 35 points. And Doc Rivers coached his team with a purpose while mixing it up with one of his former players. Griffin's 35-point night, in just three quarters of play, was the impetus behind the Clippers' 138-98 rout of the Golden State Warriors.

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration on Friday delayed a decision on the construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, citing a Nebraska state court decision that invalidated part of the project's route. The latest hold-up in the unusually lengthy review of the $5.3-billion oil pipeline almost certainly will push any decision until after the November midterm election, getting President Obama off a political hook. The White House has been pressed on one side by environmentalists who have turned opposition to the pipeline into a touchstone issue and on the other by conservative Democrats from energy-producing states who say approving Keystone XL would show the administration's commitment to job creation.

Covered bridges in Oregon? Lane County in the Willamette Valley claims to have more intact covered bridges than anywhere else west of the Mississippi River. Cyclists who follow an easy 38-mile bike course will see the bridges as well as small towns and Dorena Lake at the foot of the Cascade Mountains.  The deal: The route is one of nine Scenic Bikeway Itineraries featured on a free map for travelers intent on seeing the state from the seat of a bicycle. Longer routes in the eastern part of the state include the Grande Tour Scenic Bikeway , a 134-mile route along some sections of the original Oregon Trail, and the Old West Scenic Bikeway , which covers 175 miles through ponderosa pine forests and along rivers.

Re "Bus Line Changes Reroute Business," July 1 Catching Spring Street public transit has become more dangerous with the change in routes from Spring Street to Main Street. The change has disbursed bus riders to stops close to Needle Park and above Spring. More lighting and increased Los Angeles Police Department patrols simply aren't going to make the area safe enough after dark. The intersection of Third and Spring streets, where the state building is located, is already so perilous that the Department of Justice employs security personnel to escort employees who work after dark to the parking structure directly across the street.

So when the Clippers and Lakers encountered each other Sunday at Staples Center, both teams were on a course to see where this game would take them. The Clippers took what has become their normal path this season, blowing out the Lakers, 120-97, in their home game.

EDMONTON, Canada -- Jonas Hiller will return as the Ducks' goalie here Sunday night after allowing four first-period goals on nine shots in the team's previous game. “It's nice when you don't have too much time to think about things that didn't go too well. You want to get back as soon as possible,” Hiller said following the team's morning skate at Rexall Place. “You overthink things [and] think about things you shouldn't think about. [It's] nice to go back out and focus on hockey.” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau expressed confidence in Hiller (29-12-7)
