Default XLF'ers Rides Map

Since the members map is under way I thought of a new map so XLF'ers can mark their favorite rides. I'm sure there could be duplicates so only add markers for roads that haven't been posted yet.

Use the detailed marker to add as much info as you can about the road. An image, web link or any thing you feel will help anyone that might want to check it out.

I started it with my favorite, Skyline Drive... but will be adding more local roads when I can.

If it's a long road like the Pacific Coast Highway that stretches an entire coast then put your marker or markers on the section you are most familiar with. If another XLF'er knows another section he/she can place a marker on their section. Or if you know the entire road place multiple markers on appropriate locations.

Added one of my favorites. This will be great for my summer trip thru the south! - thanks.

Can you see who added a favorite? If not, it might be good to add your username just in case someone needs more info.

Another great idea Kevin! I used to live in Lynchburg VA, there is a LOT of beautiful riding on the Blue Ridge Parkway just South of where you posted skyline drive. It looks like when I go visit my mother next time, I need to stop on Skyline Drive somewhere and pay up on that hug.

My hope on this map is that members from all over can put their favorite rides here so if someone is planning to go through an area they can get an insiders look in to the good rides.

I don't know I have only a few good ideas a year and it's mid-january so I guess that's it for me and the rest of the year.

I've just stuck the thread. I would have done it sooner, but I only just realised that it wasn't already stuck.

Just added my favorite ride in Colorado, the San Juan Skyway Loop in southwest CO. Gorgeous views of the San Juans, high mountain passes, great twisties.
