  • For a while now I've been using Gmaps pedometer to plan longer rides.

    It's not amazing.

    Has anyone found other similar tools that work well?

  • mapmyride.com/

    It has a cycling specific workout calculator too.

  • That looks excellent, thanks.

    It's great to be able to access other cyclist's favorite routes.

  • Bikely?

    ]

  • I never managed to make bikely work. no idea why.

  • There is a good run down of bicycle iPhone apps at this blog: londoncyclist.co.uk/cycling-a­ccessories/bike-apps-for-the-iphone/

    Still not sure what ride tracking software and site I want to use. BlueQuinn you suggest mapmyride dot com but as the reviewer mentioned it's smeared with loads of ads.

  • I still find gmaps pedometer the quickest to use.

  • www.cyclestreets.com is another

  • I've used Gmaps Pedometer, Bikely, and Bikemap.net. I find Bikemap the one with the best features. Gmaps Pedometer is good for a quick fix, as you don't need to register or anything to enter a route.

  • www.cyclestreets.com is another

    they prefer you to use cyclestreets.net (it redirects to that from the .com - but +1 for sure.

    I've reported problems with routes and they've been fixed the same day. They'll even back end the fixes to openstreetmap so that everyone gains.

    has 3 routes now - fastest (busiest), balanced, and quietest.
    Highly recommended.

  • Only working for short rides at the moment though.

  • Half the people on here probably think a pedometer tells you how tall your local kiddy-fiddler is... :-(

    Heh, completely forgot about cyclestreets.net. I was thinking more of non-automatic cross-country ride planners. Of course. It's great. Run by volunteers, still in beta and still excellent. Go for it.

  • Does anyone know which of these mapping sites allows you to drag a bit of the route line interactively in order to tweak the route? I remember clearly doing it on one of them, can't remember which it is.

  • I think I know what you're talking about, hold on.

  • something like this?

    bikeroutetoaster.com/

  • Well, it was one of the popular sites that people on here regulalry post routes from, and it has this excellent feature where it mapped out a route for you if you dragged the route to, say, a favourite climb (ahem) or whatever.

  • Strava? Gmap-Pedometer? Bikely?

  • Thanks Ed I'll have a play with all these. Can't seem to operate the first one very easily...

  • I generally use mapmyride, but I never use satnavs or anything on rides. I'll use it to work out distances, then I'll use an actual paper map for long rides.

  • bikemap.net/

    That's what I use...let's you sort of draw your route onto the map...not that I'm expaining that very well!

    You'll find plenty of LFGSS users' rides on there too.

  • Lucy, alternative like ridewithgps often have a cue sheet to print out on top of the GPS.

    here's an example (click full route to get an idea);
