Just a quick explanation about the maps of our routes… We use MapMyRide to log our routes and take the resulting Google maps from the website afterwards. We started off using the facility to insert interactive maps in the blog, but we’ve found that slows everything down terribly. So we are just using screenshots of the maps. If you have any questions about any of our routes, just ask!
Update (Jan 2014): We have switched to Strava for the time being, as we had too many rides fail to upload with MapMyRide. So the maps are now those generated by Strava. Hope they are useful!
