I’ve notice that the grumpy* security guru known as Samuri has been using a nifty Google Maps Application recently to plot maps of his riding routes. I’ve been quite please with the simplicity of Gmaps-pedometer for sharing my recent local route exploration, but having just had to put something together for a website demonstration I’m giving tomorrow, I’m tempted to try Map My Ride out on here with a report on my next foray into the unknown.
*Jon’s quite justified in being grumpy. People in cars trying to kill you generally induces negativity even in the nicest of people. The people of Leigh seem to have developed a new sport that involves trying to take out cyclists (maybe they’ve watched Death Race 2000 too many times) or it might just be that they’re trying to tell him that he doesn’t fit in. Leigh: a local town. For local people.

He stole the idea from me and I stole it from Punkass 🙂
I try to avoid Leigh when cycling just in case the car drivers think I’m Jon and try to kill me.
Thieving bunch aren’t we 🙂
Simple answer is don’t ride west out of Manchester. It’s pretty much flat and boring until you fall in the sea anyway…
