View Full Version : New way to get route distances--RouteRuler.com

06-01-2005, 03:50 PM
I am a runner in San Francisco, CA that was frustrated by trying to
determine exact route distances. I found driving them to be tedious,
time consuming, and less than accurate, especially when I wanted to
run on trails, through parks, and down one-way streets where cars
cannot go.

So, I got together with another runner-friend of mine and created a
FREE online application called Route Ruler, which allows athletes to
draw their own routes on downloaded maps and gives them exact
distances. As far as we know this is the only free service of its
kind, and it eliminates the need for buying costly GPS gadgets.

We are still fine-tuning some of the features and look of the site,
but we do have a website up at www.RouteRuler.com, and want you to
take a look at it. We feel it could turn out to be a great training
tool for CYCLISTS as well

Since you are the experts, we wanted to see if you would send us any
comments you might have. If you like it, please feel free to tell your
subscribers, we feel it could prove a useful training tool for them.
Also please feel free to post a link to our site. We will be
constantly improving the look and usability of Route Ruler through the
coming months.

I hope you like it, and I look forward to any comments you may send.
