Visualising the Journey

A colleague, Ian, is utilising the nifty features now available in more and more sites integrating Web2.0 functionality to share his cycling exploits on his Riding the Trail blog.
Ian's latest post, 'Record your rides with Bikely!' provides an example whereby cyclists can share knowledge about their favourite bicycle routes using Bikely. Check out his latest journey from Adelaide to Goolwa in South Australia, enhanced by the visualisation and interactivity afforded by GoogleMaps.
I too, look forward to further enhancements in sharing the knowledge with the ability to add geocoded photos (eg from Flickr) to the trail. This has been promised in the next version of Bikely.
Timely, in view of the fabulous Tour Down Under about to begin in SouthOz next week!
