I don't know if anyone else has checked this out (there are undoubtedly competing apps out there that do the same thing?) but it's great for keeping track of your rides if you have an android phone:

Tracks all your stats via gps, you can take photo's which are automatically uploaded to the ride information which is available on the web, get it to tell you what your current speed is, average, average since it last told you periodically etc... Can also give you a rough idea of how many calories you burned and lets you keep track of how difficult or easy it was as well as the weather (so hopefully you can see that the same route becomes easier over time).

Despite my first ride ending in a puncture, for which I was totally unprepared, causing me to have to walk back home, I'm pretty chuffed with being able to see exactly how far I did and how long it took, also uploaded a photo of some cows to test that out.

If you have an android phone and don't already use something like this you should check it out Smile

Oddly enough I was looking at this very app on the android market yesterday!
I run a Garmin GPS to track my rides, but this one looked decent enough to warrant using along side/instead of.

My Desire's battery is far from good at the moment, so I daren't leave the GPS on while I go riding, in case it's utterly dead IF I happen to need to phone urgently Wink
But once I've found a decent replacement I'll give this a try.

Cheers for the heads up matey, certainly looks like a great app for us biker folks.

Aye I was pleasantly surprised at how hassle free it was to use and setup.

I've got 2x portable batteries I carry with me just in case:

They're cheap and work perfectly with my milestone, I get about 1.25 full charges from each one. I also have a few battery saving settings and the advanced task killer app which helps tremendously.

I use it on my iPhone.
Battery wise over a 3hour ride it would use arround 35% battery, maybe a little less. Does seem to skip certain sections occasioanlly though but i think thats more my signal than the app. for free I couldnt think of anything better. Have to start up a thread where we challenege eachother on the routes we've mapped!

Was loving this app till I tried to map bewl, it saved over 2gb of data during the ride then crashed when I didn't have enough spare room on my phone! Going to try this at bedgebury tomorrow and hopefully get better results.

odd as a typical gpx/mmo file for somewhere like bewl would be about 0.1meg!
