I log local rides on GPS and put them on my blog. If you are in New Zealand and want some Auckland Sightseeing rides let me know!

GPS is a very cool accessory and doesn't require huge investment. It’s a very cool thing to see that little pointer rolling along indicating turns! Elevation report it gives is also very handy as you can learn a lot about climbing etc watching the rate of change as you ride.

Forgot to say, wlecome to TypePad! I love it


Then there will spring up a P2P / Bittorrent black market for exchanging these valuable ride files...and the ride developers will claim they need to have control over distribution to reclaim their costs of developing the rides...and then all the bike GPS units will start having competing proprietary DRM systems...and we'll have to sit through patronizing ads at the beginning of movies about how stealing ride files is anti-American...and next thing you know, the industry's gone and killed itself by crippling the technology's usefulness.

Isn't that how it works these days?
