Google Earth has gotten good!

I was able to hook up my GPS and download my track from the Tour de Blast straight into the new version of Google Earth.
It shows not only the elevation, but the speed and angle. Here you can see we were doing 31 mph at mile 60 on a 7% down grade. Google Earth also allows me to play back the route as a tour! If only it could control the weather. Now I just need to geocode my photos!

How did you connect up the data?

The graph of elevation overlaid on velocity (speed) is the coolest. You weren't going 30 mph on the uphill as you approached each of the crests.
