Open Street Map, Garmin Units and Ride with GPS

Ride with GPS is offering map updates for Garmin units for $25. That is much cheaper than Garmin charges, however, the map data is using Open Street Maps (OSM) data which you can download to Garmin units for free. This website offers info on how to do download OSM data and put it on your GPS unit. At home, I have links to a very concise webpage with very easy to follow directions. I will update this posting with that info soon. Thew data on my Garmin Oregon 300 (from about 2005) works fine with it and can even follow the roads and trails for driving/riding directions.

Shenandoah 100 SM100 2014 Course – No Changes

Shenandoah Mountain Touring is holding the 19th annual Shenandoah 100 Sunday August 31 on Labor Day weekend. There are no planned course changes for 2014 since the 2013 event. None. Not one. sm100Links to the profile and maps:

I plan to work on the on-line version a bit more. I also will make a few changes to the print versions as well. A lot of new data is available that will make them look better.
