Roller Out...Stepper In..

Took the rollers back to the shop....they are more interesting to ride then the stationary...but thee end result is still the same.....I'm IN DOORS AND IT BLOWS ASS! Save me monies for race's/traveling to race's:) So last night I opted for 2 15min. interval sessions on our stepper and it kicked my ass....I wore layers, and was huffing and puffing and sweating bullets within 5 mins on level 13. Climbing and going nowhere, riding and going nowhere....what the hell is wrong with us:) Riding this afternoon....most likely late....start around 5pm....out for my 1.5hr loop then home to chow:) Back on the stepper Wed., then a light spin on Thursday & Friday. Saturday we ride a Hundy....looks like a high of 30's with SW wind....riding a new route.....found here....still trying to figure these fucking mappy things out.....route slip is under which sucks cause they gave you thee option of a route slip turn for turn....I can't seem to find that goodie on google maps.....anyone?

Peace

Squirrel, check out this thread: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=354074

I tried it out a while back and it seemed to work just fine for making route slips on google. Let me know how it works for you.

Also, sometime this year I'd like to do a gravel ride down past my parents place south of Truro and back which should be good for a dirty century. There are some sweet roads and killer hills down there. Shoot, we could probably just start down there and get a century around there

Dude, check out mapmyride.com They bought out routeslip and if you have one of those fancy Garmin GPS bikecomputer you can upload routes to it and back.

I understand that mapmyride bought out route slip but they (not that I can see) didn't incorporate the cue sheet application like route slip had....which blows ass:(

Peace

If you make the route in mapmyride, using the follow roads feature, it keeps track of the turns made. Then when you select print, it gives your the cuesheet. Or you can view notes and print it from there.

However, if you don't use follow roads, you have to manually type in directions as you plot points.
