Map bike routes

A few days back I discovered a googlemaps enhanced site that allows you to map your bike routes. It's appropriately called Bikely . One can keep track of bike routes , add tags , discover more routes added by others . You can see one of the routes I created here .

An excellent new feature that I noticed today is that the site can create elevation graphs of the route from USGS data .

Now this bonecrusher ride may not be that much of a bonecrusher but the graph showing a 10% grade towards the end makes it pretty pretty. The ability to upload a gpx file file from your GPS receiver and download your route as a gpx files makes this utility doubly cool . One can also hop over to the topografix site to download a free GPS utility to make it more useful .
