GPS Data Wanted

Hey fellow riders,
For the past year I have been collecting GPS trail and tour data for bicycling trips (mountain and road). So I am asking that if you have any waypoint, route, and/or track data from any trips that you have taken, then please download them to me at:

http://www.gpstrailhead.com/upload.html

Trips anywhere in the world are needed. I will give you credit for all trips supplied.

I plan on collecting all the trails that I can find and allow other people to download them free. I think that GPS units are great for road and mountain bicycling and these trips can help expand an interest in touring.

If you want to download what I have collected so far then go to:

http://www.gpstrailhead.com/gps-trails.html

I would appreciate any trip ideas that you may have.

Thanks and enjoy the new riding season
John

I want to thank everyone who has uploaded their GPS trail info. I will get them online ASAP so everyone can view them. Please keep them coming.

hmmmm i see your .gpx files are routes I sent you a track I hope you can use that. I think a detailed track would be better on the mountain bike trails. Not sure on the bike GPS units, but I use an etrex and it will display the tracks.

DirtPedalerB,
On mountain bike trails I prefer tracks to waypoints, but waypoints are okay too. It just depends on what my readers upload to my site. On road trips tracks or waypoints work just as well, but a reader can see the elevation profiles if track info is sent in. I use a map60csx and I love it.

Keep riding.
John
