Custom Google Maps

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&om=1&z=11&ll=45.458204,-84.95779&spn=0.261045,0.451813&t=k&msid=109829968746992716249.00000111dd49c8e9d435a&msa=0

I'm not sure how this is going to work out, but I figured it's worth a try. My buddy Zach out in New York just put me onto this custom map thing, and so far it seems pretty cool. You can take any Google map image, whether it be sattelite or straight up roads, and then make your own place markings. It would appear that you can customize it in a host of other ways as well, but that's as far as I've gotten today. If it doesn't show up this time, I'll try again later. In other news, Sarah is working on an evite for the race in order to make it a "little more official". I said as long as you're not wasting paper that's okay by me. So keep your eyes peeled for it in your respective inboxes. I am planning on starting up the WNR tomorrow night no matter what. It'll have to be on the road since the woods are still full of snow. I know it's going to be 38 with a chance of snow, but after two hours on the trainer last night I must get outside to ride. 6:30 behind the store. Be there or be square.

try pasting this code into the blog post:

Team Terpening: the map. Chang the text of the link to whatever you want.

per your earlier comment, yeah, Beacon's pretty. I hear good things about the mountain biking. Some steep rides I'd imagine, but haven't even walked the trails yet so I have a lot to learn. very much looking forward to having you up.
