mapmyride.com

There is this really great website, www.mapmyride.com. It's like google maps, and you can click on any point and map out bike rides/runs anywhere in the u.s. It's so cool. It's very easy, and when you click "follow the road" you can click on the beginning of a road and the end of the road (or wherever you turn off the road) and it automatically follows it, instead of you having to click at every curve. I used to go back after I went for a run so that I could drive it and see how far I'd gone. I LOVE doing this. Especially for biking, because I'm exploring areas that I don't know very well, so I can map out in advance where to go, and hopefully, not get lost!
