Route planner website?

Hi, sorry, I searched around and I didn't find anything. I know I've used a site before where you can trace your route on a map (I think it's a modded version of Google Maps), and then it tells you the distance and the elevations and everything. And, more importantly, I can save it and email it to my boyfriend so he knows exactly where I'll be riding when my new commute starts on Tuesday!!
If anybody can please help me find this site, I would really appreciate it!
Thanks!

Awesome! Thanks! Bikely is the one I was thinking of, I think, but I will check them all out.

Thanks again!

I like Toporoute while similar to the others, I think it is easier to use. Toporoute gives you an elevation profile, I don't see it in Bikely and not sure about the others.


Plus you don't need to login to use it. The disadvantage is you can't save your routes.

Bikely will supply an elevation profile. In the toolbar, in the "Show" menu, seleft "Elevation profile". There's no easy way to print it out, however.

Thanks for the tip. I would have never have found it there.

To print, right click on the graph and select print.


But it would be nice if you could size the graph.


Does not give % grade but I guess you could figure that out pretty easily.

Seems they "clean" the data, the ride I checked does not seem to have a lot of the "noise" like toporoute has.


Any idea of the meaning of the red and green lines on the chart?
