Commuter Route Assistance

Commuting routes are often dangerous... what if a potential commuter could submit a start and end point and get a route for both directions. My route home from work is way different than my route to work. Factors such as; riding at night, crossing high speed traffic, different shoulder widths, steep uphills, etc... dictate different routes. Perhaps a once a week training group that scouts a few of the best routes and then races them to determine mileage, time, ease, and safety of each route could be fun and beneficial.
