Map Maker, Map Maker, Make Me a Map!

I found this interesting website called WhereWeRide and what I really like about it is how it lays out the ride locations for a particular area, which has re-awakened my desire to create my own local Dirt Guide.

I started poking around Google Apps and after a few hours of playing around or you might say coding I created this. I haven't figured out how to make it interactive and to imbed it into a blog post but I will get there eventually. The other thing I want to start doing is adding my ride tracks as an interactive map rather than a static map. Now that would be awesome!

What I am aiming for is to create a map for CT with all the legal places to ride and they will be numbered like the WhereWeRide map and when you click on the number, you will get a pop up window that name the location and provide links to various websites that have information on the particular place. One stop shopping for all the websites with riding information.
