BicycleClimbs.com


Last week I bought and set up hosting for BicycleClimbs.com. Thanks to all that recommended hosting services - I ended up at webhost4life, and it's been pretty painless so fair, with good tech support when I've needed it.


The site is a slightly-improved version of my original site - the display now includes a list of climbs (expanded), and I've added an RSS feed that lists the climbs, so you can find out when new ones are added.


I plan on doing dynamic generation of the pages in the future, when I get some free time to figure things out. How do you generate an XML file from within ASP.NET, anyway?


I've also looked at Virtual Earth, but haven't seen an API show up yet.

    Did you get in on the 10x deal? If so, that’s pretty sweet. Did you refer anyone by chance?

    have not yet tried them myself, but they are linked to from VE’s community pages.

    I usually do it by creating an XmlDocument (xmlDoc), adding data to it and then sending it back with either:

    XmlTextWriter writer=new XmlTextWriter(Response.Output);

    xmlDoc.WriteTo(writer);

    or with:

    Response.Write(xmlDoc.OuterXml);

    But first you have to set:

    Response.ContentType="text/xml";

    This should work fine instead of using the static file climbs.xml

    Surely this must be a trick question. I can think of several off the top of my head (and have used most of them in the past). Erik H. has provided the most common methods.

    Nice. I’ve updated my <a href=http://www.bicyclingwiki.com>wiki</a&gt;.

    Also to add to your list is Snoqualmie Pass. From North Bend to the pass is 2,661 elevation gain: http://www.jimcarson.com/images/snoqualmiepass.jpg
