I had an idea for a location-based register of the places I have been to and/or like to use to take pictures of my bike as a resource to help others find good locations. A buddy wanted to see if he could work out how to make it work - with the help of a few plugins and fiddling with some knobs and buttons, SnapMyBike.com was born.

Take a look!

Zoom out to a global view and you'll see a focus of my 'pins' around Sydney, plus a couple in Europe. Each 'pin' has a title, an address or GPS co-ordinates, a description and a sample pic.

There are also a couple of café and shop pins - any other café & shops added to the site will become subscription-based for a small annual fee.

As the strapline: "Find, mark, remember" indicates, this was as much about finding new locations that I was unaware of locally and when I am travelling with my bike in new places; but also for remembering and sharing where I tend to take pics of my bike locally. I think it works quite well in that regard; and I'm excited to see what crops up.

Feel free to give it a try by clicking on the 'Submit a Snap' button - but please remember, no pins will be approved (I moderate all submissions) without a pic of the location to go with it!

Nice!

As it's called "snap my bike", there must be a rule that there should be a bike in the pic (along with the scenery).

If you click 'submit a snap', then 'choose file' it'll give you the option to take a photo.
