Amazing website with pictures of AC Transam

Not sure if people already know about this site, but it got me excited - 16000 pictures taken every 1/4 mile on the trail....

Bookmarked! Useful or not, who knows.

The site allows you to track your training miles, and then shows you the picture of where you would be if every training ride was laid end-to-end on the transam route.

The best part is that you can select any point on the trail and it has an actual photograph of it (16,000 photos in all)

This is so cool! Two years ago I rode the TransAm across VA and a small part of KY. Seeing some of those sights again on this website is fascinating. Thanks!
