Introducing REI’s Bike Your Drive iPhone App

Thanks to Ted mentioning it over at his BikinginLA blog, I quickly ventured to the App Store on my iPhone and downloaded the free Bike Your Drive app from REI. Aside from it totally crashing my phone at the outset of my evening commute when I attempted to use its photo function, so far so good. The battery drain isn’t as bad as some of the other GPS-based apps I’ve tried, and the info parsed and uploaded to is very well presented (and embeddable, like so):

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
