Learn to map your favorite rides and add them to the FREE map of the world!
If you have a GPS unit (not in car navigation) or an iPhone, bring them along and I'll show you how you can use them to map! OR I have plenty of GPS to loan ;)
This is an EASY ride.
10- 15 miles at 10-15 mph pace.
Meet at the REI Flagship store downtown.
at Confluence Park
Meet under the Alpe D'Huez outdoor clock just to
right of the main doors.
Please ask "Are you here for the OpenStreetMap Ride?"
of anyone standing next to the clock.
I'll be wearing a Budweiser Jersey (the Czech Beer ;))
Mapping parties are events where anyone can come and participate in the OpenStreetMap project.
OpenStreetMap is a free, open source map that can be contributed, edited and used by anyone anywhere!! Improve the hiking trails, locate the bike paths or create the best Pub crawl map ever!!
Mapping parties are social events where experienced and new mappers can meet to share and learn more about the project. The events are generally held in a public place, and allow time for discussion, mapping and editing. The event is open to all. Come for the whole event or stay for 30 minutes, it's up to you.
They are relaxed events and you're supposed to have fun. Often we grab a beer or glass of wine after the event, and this is no exception!
Join us Sunday for an introductory bike ride where we'll show you how you can map your favorite rides and add them to the FREE map of the world!
