In Oakland California there is a space called “Rock Paper Scissors Collective“, an art collective for various reasons. One of those reasons was a recent show by “Jonathan Mann and The Rock Cookie Bottom Band“.
Notice behind the band a little poster board that looks like a chalk board from grade school, “Keep Calm – Cycle On”. (From perhaps World War ll Britian, Keep Calm – Carry On … digging out your family from under your detroyed house after an aerial bombardment? – yes – looked it up my intuition was right).
Good advice with all the transportation carnage now-a-days as well I think.

Below is an embed of Jonathan Mann and The Rock Cookie Bottom Band‘s great song “Wren The Polyamourous Polar Bear” (which is Number One with a bullet on my chart for this week – and maybe next week too).
Also, Jonathan Mann is doing a “Song a Day” project where he writes an original song and produces a video for it – Every Day for over TWO YEARS now (Wren is #766).
Now you can map your route automatically with Garmin Connect products that you may set to collect route telemetry and/or bio-telemetry! You just upload the data to Garmins online interface and the widget lays out charts and maps caulk full of amazing data in professional looking interfaces.
"The Daily Dex" blog Garmin telemetry of "27 mile ride".
Not only static graphs, like the ones above, but also a player that shows the the route over time with an accompanying graph which shows all four telemetries above and follows the pace of the route.
I found this amazing technology for the consumer market via Twitter user (@dexradio) Declan Mc Glone’s website, “The Daily Dex” in a post titled “27 Mile ride“. Some of you may remember that during the 2010 Tour de France several teams came out with live online individual telemetries of the entire team at their websites. You could watch, in real time, as a rider created 500 watts of power while powering up the Col du Tourmalet for example. This I suppose is the next step in the technological advance, a home user version.

I manage two blogs here at BikingToronto: "@Blog_FreeWheel" and the "Toronto/GTA Bicycle Route Mapping Wiki". The Blog and the Wiki are two sides of a coin - the blog to discuss bicycle routes and the politics of bicycle routes - and the Mapping Wiki to publish bike route maps contributors and I have discovered to help city planners, cycling advocates and road users to choose and advocate for, safe and efficient cycling routes on Toronto's busy and dangerous car-centric infrastructure.
