Nick Fessel shows his bike ride on Google Maps (and how he did it)

Nick Fessel took a bike ride on a Burlington, Vermont bike path.

When he returned home, he translated these values to usable data that the Google Maps API could use to show you his route on a Google map. Here is the end result of his work and his open invitation to anyone interested in using his code to do something similar..
