Paris - Nice, Maps

At least a few readers have as much fun with maps as I do, so here are the maps I traced on Ride with GPS for my Paris-Nice ride. They are always a pretty good approximation of the routes I actually used. Sometimes they are exact, sometimes not. From time to time I intentionally altered my route on the day of the ride. From time to time I made unintended alterations.

In 2013, my Atlantic to Mediterranean ride also used Ride with GPS. Then I found they often overstated the actual mileage and climb. This year, after changing their software, the numbers were acceptably accurate, with mileage usually slightly understated. I am confident of the mileage that my bike computer records, though not of the climb.

If anyone has a favorite, or disliked, mapping program it would be fun and informative to learn what other riders use.

  1. Fascinating! Very good use of technology: the path is shown. What is missing are the calories used in the doing of the various segments. Such an interest would be that of others than yourself.
    Job well done. I wish you many good memories of this newest périple.

    1. George! You're home, welcome back!

      Thank you... and the only thing I can tell you about the calories is that they equalled about minus five pounds.

  2. Hi Susan, it looks like you changed the permissions for viewing your route maps. Any chance I could see them? We're hosting a couple who are heading the same way tomorrow, I'd love to show them your route.

    BTW, loved your Lake Champlain pics. I don't remember it looking that pretty when I was a kid. On the other hand, I might have been sulky because of all the back-to-school cross-border shopping...
