Charity Ride Route Mapping Software?

I'll check the Electronics forum as well, but I'm wondering if there might be someone on this forum that could direct me to a software program for producing route maps for a new charity bike ride in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

I have used MapMyRide for personal rides and I am aware of Veloroutes and BikeToaster but have not used them. One of the big problems is that MMR and BikeToaster, for example, use GoogleMaps whose maps for the Puerto Vallarta area are good but still very incomplete for the proposed route.

So, I am looking for opinions about these three as well as suggestions for other mapping tools.

Thanks

Haven't gone in to do much with it, or tried it out much, but you may want to give it a look...

Bikely.com is a lot like MapMyRide, I believe, but one thing it offers that (IIRC) MMR does not is the ability to create cue sheets. Simply add a description to at least six points, save your route, then go back to My Routes and select your route, then Show > Cue Sheet. Really cool and very helpful.
