I have tried numerous times and have no idea how to add myself. I can edit the map but no idea how to get the little cyclist avatar to show up and add myself. It's not very intuitive. Or I'm an idiot.

Click edit and then click the icon you inserted, and you'll get a popup menu of alternate icons. Select the cyclist and save.

OK, I must be a complete moron because when I click "Edit", I get 2 different buttons that say "Done" and "Saved" but I don't see anyway to insert any kind of an icon.

Love your map for your tutorial.I lived in South America as a child and have many fond memories of going to the big city of Bogota,Medellin,Santiago.I listed on the map in the Silver Spring Weaton MD a riding partner would make the miles go by.

Bogota was selected by the digital equivalent of the dart tossed at the map.
