Bikely elevation profiles?

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Bikely elevation profiles?

Is there anyway to break climbs down by grades on bikely?

As a side note, which program do you guys prefer for this stuff? Do any of them break climbs up by grade?

Thanks!

I think all the free mapping programs are extremely terrible at computing grade and cumulative elevation gain totals. If you want meaningful numbers, carry a digital altimeter with you on the ride and let that record your climbs.
