    Mapping riding routes and their characteristics

    I'm trying to map my routes and loops on Google Earth. I can 'pin' all the intersections and make a 'path', but I can't seem to get the 'path' to spit out it's point by point distance and elevation. Anyone know how to do that?

    Are there other tools for doing this that would be simpler or better to use? If so, I'd like to learn about them.

    I used to use www.routeslip.com (for logging rides, too) and occasionally bikely.com - but I've not been logging/mapping much of late.
