My latest post “Carcassonne to Andorra via 11 Passes/Cols” is now available on RoadTrooper.com

RoadTrooper.com is my new site with greater functionality and integration with Google Maps and Google Earth. Use the Google Map Street View to see road conditions along the route, just drag the “orange man icon” on the integrated map at the top of each post to the roads along the route to help plan your journeys. You may need to install Google Earth to avail of the function. It’s well worth the effort, I’ve found it an invaluable tool for deciding if the road condition suits my bike, riding style etc., and planning my tours. When in “Street View” use the mouse scroll wheel to travel along your chosen road in continuous high-res photos. If your have not yet used this tool it will blow your mind!

Google Earth Tutorials Here!

I have had a few problems with very unfriendly IP’s origionating from Eastern Europe and China using automatic bulk download programs to download routes, photos and contant for who know’s what reason which also effected bandwith and accessability. To stop this I’ve had no choice but to implement a small restriction to the new site www.RoadTrooper.com in that you will need to create a free account to log in if you want to download the routes. No information is required other then your email address which will NOT be used for any other reason, a password will be sent to the email address you supply which you will need to keep until I find a better way.

You will not recieve any unwanted email by doing this, the subscription service to recieve updates is seperate to this. Unfortunatly if you have already subscribed to this blog you will need to subscribe again to recieve updates for the new site, sorry for any inconvience but I could find no way around this.

Coming up in my next posts to the new site RoadTrooper will be a full description of La Grande Route des Cols Pyrenees which is an amazing 950km route through the highest passes along the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Med. Also Irelands west coast, more Alps and the Dolomites.

Hope ye all have a great summer touring and if you dont get around to it this year then do the next best thing and read about Europes best motorbike routes here and plan to get your ass out there next year!

Cheers
Den
