Route planning websites

Other than MapMyRide, are there any other websites where one can create a route map, and have it give you a cue sheet for your route? Seems to me I remember fooling around with a site that wasn't MMR a year or so ago, but I can't for the life of me remember the website.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Are you looking to make a hard copy of the cue sheet or digital? If digital, what OS?

That's a good one. You have to have a subscription to get nice printable cue sheets as a PDF. Otherwise, you have to format the basic CSV text yourself. If want to use their PDF, change the font size to 10.

Note that ridewithgps lets you go month-by-month for subscription.

Thank you johnny99, that was the site I was trying to find. Appreciate the link.

And thanks to everyone else who replied. I'll take a look at the other websites mentioned and see how they look / work.

+100 RidewithGPS. Very easy to use, uncluttered, etc.

Note on MapMyRide compared with RidewithGPS... I use MapMyRide app to log my ride. I use RidewithGPS to plan and map out a road I want to ride. The biggest difference is, MapMyRide tells me I climbed less than 300 feet when I know all I was doing was up and down rollercoaster hills. RidewithGPS tells me 1000 feet. Conversely, I also ride an almost perfectly flat bike trail and MapMyRide gives me 600 feet, 200 feet more than the rollercoaster roads.

The elevation is completely wrong with MapMyRide. I can't be exactly sure about RidewithGPS, but my legs tell me that it is close enough.

I like MMR, but can't figure out the elevation either. I want to know how miserable I should have felt!
