Neat GPS / video project @ the DeLorme blog using their Xmap software, Chip writes-
Eight members of Team DeLormeâ€™s cycling group made the long trip from Yarmouth, Maine, down to New York City to participate in the 2008 NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour. The weather was great and the opportunity to ride through the heart of such an impressive city without any automobile traffic was amazing!
The 5 Boro Bike Tour is even bigger in person than described on Bike New Yorkâ€™s web site. You really have to be in the middle of the pack to appreciate what 30,000 cyclists look like! Iâ€™ve uploaded video clips (See a couple of favorite videos at the end of this post) from a helmet cam along with some photos taken by people in our group. Check them out to get a feel for the magnitude of this event. I see why the ride has earned the title of â€largest recreational cycling event in the nation!â€
As usual, the Earthmate GPS PN-20 was with me throughout the ride. While it was impossible to get lost with that many riders, it was still good to see where we were on the route. Iâ€™ve included a screen shot from our XMap software so that you can see how Iâ€™ve linked the video clips into the map to make a nice project file for sharing with the other riders.
