More fun with Google Maps

Filed under: — stan @ 12:44 pm

Found this today on Lifehacker:

It’s a great hack for Google Maps: the Google Pedometer. But it’s not just for walking. It works for bike rides, too. For instance, here’s last Saturday’s ride to the Encino Velodrome as plotted on the map: see the route

Note that the final calculated mileage of 60.9 agrees pretty well with the 61.<mumble> measured by my bike computer.

Now, if only this could be combined with Bike Metro’s route service to give elevation data, it would be perfect.

    I created an animated biking tracker using Google Maps. See an animation of one of my bike rides here: here. I thought you might like it.

    Oops. That was the wrong link for the biking animation.

  3. Geoff Says: has the same type of gmap pedometer, but you can also get the elevations of the routes. Plenty of routes already added as well.
