Embedding an MTB Project trail map

Wed, 12/10/2014 - 10:03am

MTB Project bills itself as the “next generation of mountain bike trail maps” and is in partnership with IMBA. Among their many map-related features and tools, they make it possible to embed their maps on a website. I’m the webmaster for CROCT and we now have a Sechler Park Trail page where we’ve done this. 

(See the MTB Project site for a full-description of the Sechler Park trail and a virtual ride.  The map there can be toggled full screen.)

If you’re using a mobile device, get one the MTB Project mobile apps. One of the best features? “Works with no cell signal, including all mapping and geolocating features.”

Straw poll: Analyze these two attempts at a logover

Mon, 12/01/2014 - 8:46pm

Last Saturday morning, my buddy Clay Haglund from MAMB captured my two attempts at a logover that’s along CROCT’s Sechler Park MTB Trail in Northfield.

Watch this 45-second video of the two attempts (each with a 50% slomo clip) and then take the straw poll below.

I’ll post the results on Friday along with my analysis and then open it up for discussion.

12/06 update: See the logover poll results and video analysis in this blog post.
