On Wednesday we announced our project to pinpoint singletracks trails on a Google Map and we’re stoked to report that we’ve received nearly 100 trails locations in just 36 hours – keep ’em coming! Other cool features that were added this week:
- New trail map interface. Trail maps still look *mostly* the same but we’ve added a tab that allows you to view tracks and waypoints on an interactive Google Map in addition to the topo view (screen shot above). We’ve also cleaned up the look a bit and added a quick link to take you back to the trail listing page (don’t know why we didn’t do that sooner). Up next: improving the trail listing pages and adding more trail map download options…
- Video comments and ratings: Yep, now you can rate and comment on YouTube, Vimeo, and Broadband Sports videos without leaving singletracks. We’ve also added support for more video services like Viddler and VHoldR.
- Good news for lurkers: now you can share your two cents on our MTB gear reviews without signing up for a (free) singletracks account. The tradeoff: guest reviews will be moderated before they’re posted and you won’t receive any contribution points for your efforts.
That’s it for now, thanks to everyone for their feedback and help with all the new stuff. Ride hard this weekend!
