If you have time before you leave you could use the maps and http://ridewithgps.com/ to build a .gpx file of the trip.

General Discussion / Re: Bibs VS casual commuting to work??
« on: April 02, 2012, 12:42:56 pm »
I just started a train/bike commute a month ago. I pedal 2 miles to get the train and then 7.5 miles from the 2nd station to work. I'm lucky that there is a shower at work. I wear cycling cloths including bibs because I add a few extra miles on the return trip. I carry my work cloths everyday. I found a small nylon bag with a draw string top keeps everything in place and unwrinkled, when I slide it into the Ortlieb panniers. Commuting south of Washington DC can be a nightmare, so getting 40 minutes of exercise and 40 minutes of reading each way is so much better than sitting on I-95.

GPS Discussion / Re: Anyone using SPoT Tracker for Trips?

My son and his wife are very active outdoor adventures and live outside of Anchorage, AK. SPOT had a deal last summer. Buy two years of service and get $169, the cost of the unit back as a rebate. The basic communications service was $100/year and the tracking option another $50. We gave him the cost of the 2 year service as a birthday present. We really enjoy receiving that SPOT email on my Blackberry on a Saturday afternoon and seeing where the kids and their two Alaskan huskies are "playing" that day. Be it packrafting, dog sledding or back country sking, knowing they have that 911 button makes it worth every penny spent.
