    Tour de Map

    I have found a potentially great website that would serve as a resource when looking for places to ride. The best part is that it is totally free. It is fairly new though and does not yet have much content. If there is a place that you love to ride, log on and share it with the rest of us. This could be a great resource, but it needs your help to become one. The link to the site is as follows: http://www.tourdemap.com. Another nice feature is that it allows businesses to show their locations at no charge
    One life, one chance. Don't screw it up!

    I hope online features like this will become good resources. The downside is that eventually some good uncrowded rides might become less so . A plus all around though if more people ride. Here is another post looking for people to sign a petition for google to make something similar.

    I think it would be a cool addition to Google maps, perhaps you will
    too. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider
    signing yourself. Seems to me that it would also give a person a good
    idea about where to walk too.
    Planning routes that assume you are in a vehicle can lead you astray,
    but if a bike can use a route, than a pedestrian probably can too.
