Much as I would like to enter the contest and use “Map my Ride”, I find that the program is completely unworkable. The map that they have for Bullhead City, Arizona, where I live, is so out of date that I cannot get the thing to record my rides. Is there any way to submit my daily rides without having to work with the stupid mapping program?
