If you have a gps on your bike and/or are training, Singletracks.com is awesome. They have lots of tools you can use with your gps info to track progress. AND if you send them 3 gps maps of trails they do not have gps data on, you get a lifetime Pro Membership! I did mine yesterday (wilderness trail loop, Croom yellow trails, and Sydney Dover trails in Dover) and now have a free lifetime pro membership.... I actually like them better than mtbr, but mtbr has more users so their reviews and forums are better...

Looks like a bunch of people are slacking and riding instead of attending trail maintenance days  ;D

LOL.....  but anywayz... singletracks uses your gps maps to make books about trails and attracks peeps to their site by using your ride info... If you share it that is..  so I don't support their site if thye going to make money of my data and I don't see a penny of it...  IMO

It's a trade off in my opinion. I get a free lifetime pro subscription that normally is $30 per year giving me access to all their other maps, and the gps and training tools. Even if they only charged $20 per year for a subscription it would be like getting $200 every 10 years. no way they are making that off the 3 gps maps I gave them...the info given to them are known trails that I could not make money on if I tried.  It is not like you are giving them super secret info, and you are getting a benefit.
