Great site, thanks! Did the Boars Hill Ride last night and enjoyed it - gentle most of the way, with a couple of hills.

One question though: when creating maps on google, how can you change the settings, so it doesn't just follow the way a car can go (e.g. how can you get it to go along broad and holywell street instead of following the long way around longwall st). Any help much appreciated!

Hi John, the routes are not created in Google Maps. The route is created with either Mapsource software (Garmin), or a result from recording it with my own GPS. The route is then converted to a KML file which can be displayed in Google Maps.

Thanks for the routes, which we used for our lands End to John O'Groats training, through the winter and spring. They were a real help. The Chiltern Beauty in particular is a fabulous ride and good training.
