A few months back I began getting bored of cycling on the same roads, and decided I wanted to start biking places I've never biked before. It was hard to visualize this however, so I started a map using ridewithgps.com, recording every route I went on. Using this map I was able to glance at it and pick a new place to go to that I haven't been before.
So today, I've hit my yearly goal of 3000 miles, by far the most active year I've ever had (2nd best is 1250 miles in 2004), and I present to you my map of everywhere I've been on my bike this year:
The red X's represent my starting points. The inset at the right is in Washington DC and Northern Virginia, when I took a business trip there in August (I took my bike!). It is unlikely that I'll be adding new routes to this map as the season winds down now, so I consider this the final version.
So where have you been this year?
