250,000-299,999 SparkPoints Great Resource for All Cyclists!

Friday, December 02, 2011

Bikely ( ) is a terrific resource for cyclists of all levels!

If you're new to cycling you can check out Bikely for routes which other cyclists have already scoped out in your local area. This can give you an idea of what other cyclists have found to be "do-able" routes. You'll find rides of all lengths and levels of challenges. You can double-check a route by driving it in your car first to get an idea of how it might "ride" on your bike.

It's also handy when traveling and cycling as you can see what routes others have taken which can guide you in choosing your route.

You can also "pay it forward" and submit routes of your own to share with others. Have to admit I haven't yet done that...adding it to my "to do"!

Pretty sure this is an international resource as well so it works 'round the globe. Just happened to think of it today and thought I'd pass it on.

Oh, and I highly recommend Martin Scorsese's new movie "Hugo"(
) is a wonderful fairy tale for young and old on following your dreams, despite all obstacles, and by doing so inspiring others to do the same. Although fitness is nowhere in this movie it is a magical story of paying one's SPARK forward! Just in time for some holiday inspiration!

    Funny story about Hugo (which I ADORE, by the way, and plan on seeing a couple of more times before I can't see it in 3D anymore):
My friend has a son who's at the age where he's just beginning to doubt Santa ... and my friend is desperate to keep the magic alive at least thru this year. But on her son's Christmas list this year (thanks to loving the movie)? A writing automaton.

Not kidding! Now how is Santa going to pull THAT off??? hahaha

    I completely agree about Hugo, my daughter, husband and I all really enjoyed it - and seeing it in 3D was a treat, it's a beautiful movie visually as well.

Love all the cycling resources you post - makes me want to hop my bike and brave the ice LOL

Maybe in the spring... emoticon
