I finally used my smartphone to record a ride, the biggest problem was carrying the phone somewhere on the bike, a problem solved by my Arkel Handlebar bag being mounted again for adventuring this summer. So courtesy of iMapMyRIDE, where today’s ride is stored, you can fly down the map route in 3D. Although it appears to do the route backwards. If you have local building layers turned on, I imagine it might be even cooler. Sorry, it requires Google Earth PlugIn so only Windows and MACs are supported, and I am posting from a Linux workstation. Sigh. If it doesn’t work you can see the 2D version below.
