Course Creation Applications??

Postby Fiona Fudge » Sat Dec 14, 2013 12:33 pm

I always use Bikeroutetoaster for planning routes and downloading to my Garmin Edge 705 as tcx files. Since Google updated their maps recently, It has not been working. Can anyone recommend an easy to use alternative site?

I have used Bikehike for ages. you can toggle between Google maps and an OS map which gives a bit more detail of the terrain and road types.

Routes can be exported as tcx and gpx files.

That's a BINGO!

Well done Nick. Bikehike looks like it has been created in the same style as bikeroutetoaster but they have updated it for google maps v3 API.

It looks like it allows me to plan in advance warnings at junctions which might help stop me missing turns. I will try it out and report back. Thanks
