1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    Another great software program.
    Just wondering if you are saving paths from google earth, the default is kmz, but this can be changed to kml in the dialogue box and then from kml to gpx through software from trail tech "ride leader".

    if you have a KMZ and want a KML you can also use any of the Zip softwre (PeaZip, WinZip etc) to uncompress and that will create the KML for you, as a KMZ is just a zipped up version of a kml.
