Going for a bike ride? Check the Web first

Ok, boys and girls, the Web is starting to take notice of us. I like to post links to useful articles, because the link will vanish off the original host’s front page fairly quickly. It’s still going to be awhile before it’s really useful, but Google and MapQuest are looking to map biking and walking routes. There are also bikely.com, and mapmyride.com. These work for the US, but I haven’t tried mapping other parts of the globe. If you do, please do post a note and let me know what kind of success you have with them.

    MapMyRide is great! I have been using it for a couple of months now to figure out the distance of my rides and to log my mileage.

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for coming by and your comment. I do the same thing, since I don’t have a cyclocomputer yet to track my mileage as I ride. Someday… It’s also good to plan out new routes to take, gives me ideas for new places to ride.

    It’s been kind of expensive buying the bike and the gear I have so far so some things have had to wait.

    I use bikemap.net. It is not the best. But it does allow one to embed a route into a web page. I find that very useful on our BLOG.

    I saw that, that’s very cool. I’ll have to give it a try.
