I have added a map to the site so you can mark your location on the map (http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/VBGooglemap.php) and see where other unicyclists are located. This service uses Google's Map API and you can put a pin anywhere in the world with this, though many countries do not have detailed road information.

It's still in development and I hope to add your avatar and a link to your profile on the dialog box that is shown when clicking on a user's marking point. If you have any others ideas to make this better, please let me know.

Why did you never make it without Google?
Some longer ago here (http://unicyclist.com/forums/showpost.php?p=232098&postcount=4) and here (http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/showpost.php?p=343436&postcount=7) I posted to this (pretty much working and zoomable) example (http://www.unicyclist.org/), that with a simple database like this php script (but especially it's sql table of us-zip/long/lat data) (http://www.sanisoft.com/ziploc/) + regular long/lat input by user could do the job. Including avatars will be a piece of cake.

I agree, this is wonderful!

My suggestion would be for everybody to also include their estimate of the number of active unicyclists in their area -gilby, could you include a field for this in the label so that people know what the number represents? I would say there could be as many as 100 active riders in quebec city.

I like this idea. All the unicyclists you know who don't post here. I would say I know about 7.
