Imagine software, where you can set (from map or list) your starting point, some transit places and the final point of your journey. You can choose searching preferences: type of surface, and let the software plan your own route. The software will get you a lot of useful information: profile of your trail, map, itinerary and statistic data. Cyklotrasy (in english “cycling trails”) gives you a lot of information: altitude, latitude, longitude, photos, texts, lengths of distances, nubers of roads, numbers of bike-ways, types of surfaces, hiking and bike marking. You can observe route total length, superelevation, rise and fall. There are also prepared routes, where you can find difficulty and type of recommended bike. You can print profile, map, itinerary and statistic. Visual apperance of profile and map can be adjusted with preferences. You can export profile and map into picture, web site or GPS format. User can make a diary of his/her trips, including a lot of data. Maps are developed by administrators who update maps at least ones a year. At this time, there are 70 maps of Czech republic, 22 maps of Slovakia, 1 map of Slovenia (Julian Alps) and 1 map of Italy (Lago di Garda).We all have our ways of fueling our motivation and feeding our energy and enthusiasm, right? And if you have tried cycling before then you know how this low-impact exercise can be as perfect as a cardio exercise that helps you build strong muscles and impeccable heart health, and improve your mental health as well.
