Who knows and/or loves www.mapmyride.com ?
It is optionally free - the worst downside is that there is a little ad that appears on the maps or, for about $40 US, you can get rid of the little ad.
Link off to it and have a look. It's a great tool for recording rides with GPS satellite technology, gradients etc.
If you have (which I don't) a certain GPS enabled phone or i-Phone, you can automatically have your ride tracked.
I am from Melbourne, Australia and would like to meet other people who are on this site.
