Elevation goes to sea level when crossing bridges (Read 1566 times)


Needs more cowbell!

    This is especially true in the Netherlands. If you are committing the crime of walking in a bike lane, you will be, at the least, yelled at. At the most, thumped soundly. Don't mess with the bike paths in Holland. 

    Dutchie? 

     

    Bike culture in Holland is intriguing.  I seem to recall that there are more bikes than cars over there.  I've seen photos of "parking lots" that are row after row of bike racks.  Pretty wild.  If our gas prices keep rising I expect we'll see more racks in some retail areas.

     

    Dutchie...heh, my hubby is like 3/4 Dutch. Big grin

          In the song "Everybody Wants Some", one of Diamond Dave's WTF lyrics seems to involve a "moop beat".  It's the line that ends in "...lost in the jet stream". 

           

          "I see a lagga lookin for a moop beat..."

            The Manassas Airport runway appears to have a few bumps when it crosses a small stream. Smile This is the course map for a 10k later this year. Between 0.5 and 2.5 miles is on the runway and taxiway.

              Whoa - those are some rough takeoffs and landings!

              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                I think the OP made it clear that it's not really an issue that needs to be fixed, it's just interesting to discuss. I thought the fact that VirtualEarth does and Google Maps doesn't was interesting. But doesn't need to be "fixed".

                 

                 

                I just ran an out and back across the Golden Gate Bridge this week.  Pretty comical when you resample the elevation.
