We promoted both of these sites when they were launched on the Adventure Cycling blog and the Bike Bits e-newsletter. There are also links on the Adventure Cycling website homepage to both resources on the right hand side. In the future I'll try to post new items like these in the forums as well.http://bikeovernights.org is also another Adventure Cycling Association site worth checking out if you have not already.Nope, never seen that one either. Looks very cool!
Why do you people hide these things so well???
http://bikeovernights.org is also another Adventure Cycling Association site worth checking out if you have not already.If your looking for ride reports and or journals you might want to check out http://bicycletravelbloggers.org for daily inspiration and entertainment.Wow, I'd never heard of this. And the bigger surprise was to see that it is sponsored by Adventure Cycling!
Impressive stuff, Seth. Thanks for taking the trouble to get it out here.I agree! Thanks
This one is very commonly used by touring cyclists:I second the spot tracker. The Great Divide racers have been using these for a couple of years and it seems to be proven and work well. Have a great trip!
Funnily enough I did track a couple of other cycle tourers using the TrackMyTour iPhone app - and I was very impressed. I would certainly be tempted to use that (instead of, for example, my Wordpress blog) for my next tour.
One tricky thing is getting lots of people to use it. As hinted in my last post, I think it would require something like an endorsement/recommendation from the ACA before enough people started using it for it to gain traction.
A bigger issue is that the only mobile device supported is the iPhone/iPad, with (according to their FAQ) 'no immediate plans' to support other mobile platforms such as Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile etc. So its not exactly widely accessible (weirdly the iPhone app seems to offer functionality that you can't get on the actual website, e.g. following people's tours).
