GPS and mountain bikes

A couple of years ago I thought it would be cool to have a small GPS unit that could be carried along for a mountain bike ride and then upload your ride info to Google and be able to display a map of your ride.

A couple of years passed and then I read about this device earlier this year. Cool! It even does native a GPS export to the Google Maps API (.KML files.) But what about all those other GPS units like the Garmins? Well, I also found this post about conversion programs for Garmin and Suunto devices.

All that’s missing now is someplace to share ride info with other people. Wait, it’s all been done for me. Check out mtbguru. Lots of San Francisco-specific info for now, but rides and hikes from other areas are getting posted too.

Check it out, it’s lots of fun. Now all I need is a GPS unit so I can play too.
