    What was that map program?

    There is a mapping program on the internet.

    I used to use it, but my computer went kaplooey, and now I can't
    remember the name.

    It was very effective, but simple.

    One feature was a button that let you chose to drive/ride.

    It make a topographic map on the bottom of the screen.

    I think it's mapmyride.com

    But it looks a little different.

    I'll try the others, but I like the way you poke around with mapmyride
    and quickly check alternative routes.

    It is hit or miss on the page actually loading up, but when it does, it works good.

    "It was very effective, but simple."

    Whatever it was, I don't know. But what you want is ridewithgps.com for creating bike routes. It's the best I've tried.

    I've used:
    gmap pedometer
    mapmyride
    google maps
    routeslips
    toporoute
    bikely
    bike route toaster
    gpsies
    etc.

    ridewithgps.com is very easy to add a road to the route, then Undo it if you want to try a different way. You can undo all the way back to the start if needed. The elevation chart is updated as you add to the route, and you can drag to select a section of the elevation chart, to see the average grade, total climb, and road distance for just that part of the ride.


    They just added some new features.
    Now you can use Street View to see the road condition or the landmarks at a turn.
    You can drag the route to a new road, just like Google Maps.
    There's more map types, OSM Cycle maps, US Topo, and the usual Google street map and Terrain View.
