I love this service - thanks so much. My friends and I have started walking for fitness and we all live in different cities. We are walking across Canada and meeting somewhere in the middle (since some are East and some are West). I got the others hooked up here and now it is fun to see each others progress. It is a good way to motivate and encourage each other. Yaaaay! :D

Thank you for putting up this forum. I just started biking longer distances and I would just go until I felt I went far enough then turn around and go back to where I started. Now I can save these routes and either do them again or show off to my couch potato friends.

Is There any way to add points on the map for hiking trails that are not on the google map but can be seen from the satellite view?

For the hiking trails which Google maps has included navigation points, the default setting will add points along the trail. For those hiking trails where Google maps does not have any navigation points, you will need to switch to the "Straight line" navigation option. The "Straight line" navigation option on the home page will draw a straight line between your selected points along the trail. You can freely switch between the "Straight line", "Running/Walking", or "Cycling/Driving" route creation options while creating your route.

You may also want to use the "Find routes" page and search for routes created by other users near your hiking trail. Some one else may have already created a route along your hiking trail.

Just joined and so far made several cycle routes. Great program thanks. I have only one problem which is about the aspect ratio of the map. The height is very restricted caused by, in my opinion, too much of the height being taken up by what is above the map. Perhaps you could consider introducing a collapse button that can be used during the actual route making process. As it is I find myself doing too much vertical scrolling around.

You can change the map size dropdown from "Autosizing map" to "Large map" to increase the height of the map. We will consider implementing your suggestion in a future update.
