Route your current bike ride

Recently I started to cycle a specific route. I still do not have a bike computer so any stats on my route has been a guess at best.

All I know thank to Google Maps is that it was a 10 mile loop starting and finishing at my house.

The one thing I knew was that the first half of the bike route the road sure kicks my behind.

But, I discovered VeloRoutes. The best tool is http://veloroutes.org/bikemaps. You can track your route and get the exact distance and nice looking graphs when it comes to elevation.

Here is the elevation graph for DMS-10 Mile route.

So this nice looking graph confirms why the first half my bike route kicks my butt.
