    Anyone know a way to map a bike route and get elevation information on it? Basically, I'd like to be able to name the start and end points, then get total elevation change and total climbing. Even better if I can manually map the route (choose exactly which roads, etc.).

    Anything like that out there?

    You should be able to plot your route first. Do that by typing in your starting address in the "Jump To" box at the top. Then just click "start recording" and map your route.

    When done, click "elevation" at the left to get profile of the route.

    You can also save multiple routes (unique URL's are assigned), so you can refer back to them later.

    Some of the maps are outdated, but it is easy to check elevation gains and distances.

    Thanks everyone, these are pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.

    None of them seem to have any elevation data in Alaska and the Yukon. Pity. No one would know one off the top of their head that would, would they?

    You going up there for the Texas 4000? Aweosme.

    You could check on google earth. It has approximate elevation values for anywhere on the globe.
