Share your Commute Route

Bikely.com is a wonderful site that is based on Google Maps and allows you to create, view and share routes.

You can view other peoples' routes and maybe this can be used to meet up with other people biking a similar route, or to find a new route for yourself!

This is my commute. Enjoy!

It's there.
- Go to a route, eg here.
- On the menu bar touching the top of the map, on the far left, there is a "Show" menu.
- Select Elevation Profile.

My Commute

This is mine:

http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/My-Commute152113


I've done it about 6 times in the last month, my goal is to get up to 3 times a week and then 5days a week by the end of the summer.

Looks like I've got the easiest/shortest commute. ISaacG, what do you do at the Roger's Centre?

It'd be cool if I could say they employed me, but the fact is that the start and end positions of my route are off by 1-4 blocks, so I don't actually work at the SkyDome. I work a block or two away in one of the commercial skyrises there.

Yeah...my work has pretty nice showers/change rooms so its not too bad. Plus, with it being so long I really notice the gas savings, even with only occasionally riding.

Ah. I'm a huge Jays fan, so I would have been pretty geeked out if you were employed by them.
