Bikely – A Better Way to Explore Cycling

Wow. This resource can really change the way you cycle. Imagine that you want to cycle in an “unknown” location, but you don’t know what route to take… and you don’t know the best sites, or even which location is “safe”. Bikely lets you see paths that others have uploaded so that you can experience a “ride” that others suggest as being a good trip.

Here is a trip from “West Side Highway in Downtown Manhattan to Hoboken” in New York. There is also room for comments and hopefully in the future they can work in “GeoTagged” pictures from Flickr. I would also like to see a description associated with the ride.

The cool thing is that users get to upload their own route for others to share and “tag” the routes with descriptive terms like level of difficulty and “onroad” as well as “scenic” etc.

Here is the Austin Dam Loop trail for my Texas kids:


Also, if I were a bike company I would want to advertise here. People are already reviewing bikes. Let’s see who advertises?
