Mapcycle is the work of Patrick Maslen, based in Perth, Western Australia. Mostly it’s about web mapping or bike touring, often both, sometimes neither. The links below take you to some current web mapping pages.
The Munda Biddi is one of the world’s great long distance mountain bike touring routes. Find out where you can access it, ride it and stay the night. Fly over the stretch from Collie to Mundaring. This is where I live so updates are coming soon!
Take a look at detailed maps of each stages of the 2014 Tour de France. One click takes you to a spectacular Google Earth flyover. Search for highest and longest climbs, Hors Categorie climbs and more. For those in France you can download gpx files for a GPS and ride the course yourself! Or download a kmz file to view in Google Earth.
Another great Australian trail, for horses and walkers as well as mountain bikes. Get a recommended schedule from Launceston to Hobart (this is only part of the trail), fly over the different stages, and download overview maps and profiles, gpx and kml. Coming soon: descriptions and photos from a recent ride over the trail between Bracknell (near Launceston) and Judbury (near Hobart).
