bike route planning sites

For planning some rides around Aberdeenshire and other occasions,  Alex recommends these sites>
Put very simply, Bikely helps cyclists share knowledge of good bicycle routes. It can be quite tricky traversing a car dominated city by bicycle, particularly when you need to travel an unknown route to a new destination. But the chances are, someone has cycled that way before you. Bikely makes it easy for him or her to show you the best way.
Cycle Route is a great site for finding Cycle routes, mountain bike trails and single track that has been tried and tested. Add your own routes using the new Cycle route planner. Comment on other routes that you have tried, give them a rating and help others decide where to Cycle.

    I would add to the above list which I’ve been using for the past two years. Fairly intuitive navigation based on Google Maps, route profile(in metres) that you can trace on a map + calculated total ascent and a magnetic tool – a BIG win(just connect the dots). The admins are implementing a training log into the application at the moment and apparently you can share the routes over Facebook.
