Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - Fun things to do when you're bored
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I suppose fun is a little optomistic, but has anyone ever tried following your commute/weekend ride using the google satallite images? Kinda fun to see what you don't notice from the ground. Also, looking at manhattan up close makes for some really strange perspective effects.

I once got bored and mapped my commute in google earth, and then did the little 3d flythrough. it was fun.
I use www.gmap-pedometer.com to map out my routes.
i used the satellite images to find the best route from my house to my work. it makes my commute a lot nicer.
