Bikely is a bicycle route sharing tool worth bookmarking. This is pretty much what I envisioned happening a year ago after I stumbled upon Gmaps Pedometer.

There are a lot of projects out there that aim to compute bicycle routes, rather than rely on actual bicyclists simply to document them. I haven’t been too impressed with the computed routes. Meanwhile, the success of the been-there sharing approach depends on lots of cyclists getting behind a service like Bikely. Add your routes!

    Oh… also I do like their “nearby” feature… though I wish there were some routes nearby. SE michigan is to quiet.

    Maybe I should help them get their workflow models, usability and interaction models together. Bikely could really rock.
