Topocoding: How cool is this!

I was just having a look at Mark Beaumont’s updates on his blog and noticed he had a terrain profile of one of his stages – it was provided by a company called Topocoding. So I followed the link and plugged in the main towns that make up the EuroVรฉlo 5 and produced the profile here. How cool is that? Obviously over the 2,500 + kilometres it is not that accurate in terms of the ups and downs of daily cycling, but as an indication of where I will be required to ascend and descend, it’s great. Something to use when I get down to the detailed route planning (see previous entry) later this year…
I wonder where the Alps are?
