Title: elevation website?
Post by: gyraffoclops on November 29, 2009, 12:58:52 pm
I'm planning on riding from portland, OR to yellowstone then up into montana this summer and i was wondering if anybody knew any websites that would give me an elevation map of the route i make.

Try Map My Ride http://www.mapmyride.com/ and Bike Route Toaster http://www.bikeroutetoaster.com/

edit: I cannot seem to to get Bike Route Toaster to load.

Here is another method.

1) create driving directions in google maps (http://maps.google.com, Get Directions, ...)
2) click the link icon on the google map, copy the  contents of the  "Paste Link in email or IM" box (http://maps.google.com/...)
3) paste the link into the page at http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/profile_input in the box "Or provide the URL of data on the Web:"
4) select "From best available source" in the "Add DEM elevation data"
5) push the "Draw the Profile" button.

I've been experimenting with this site and really like it, although I've had some problems logging in.

I think you'll like it.

www.bikely.com allows you to map out routes and see the elevation profile.  I find it less commercial than mapmyride

My thanks to tsteven4.  What a great resource.  I checked out profiles for several of the passes I've already ridden, and a few I've been wanting to take on.  Google maps to GPS profiler is not only useful, but lots of fun.
