Google Map Places to Kite Buggy/ATB


So I started a Google Map of places to buggy and/or ATB or skate...you get the idea. I made it open to anyone to add/edit places, I think all you need is a Google account. I added the three places I have been, Alvord, Ivanpah and Sunset Beach. lets see if this works, add your buggy spots and include some detailed information, links and video. http://goo.gl/maps/0WGmr

Yes, it will be interesting to see the country fill in as people add in spots they've ridden.

I don't want to be stingy, feel free to add kiteboarding/surfing and snow kite/hardwater spots. you can change the color of the marker, lets make land kiting red, water blue and snow/ice light blue in order to make it easier to find what you are looking for. Thanks for taking the time to do this! Bobby you been busy!

Good to hear, you may have bit off more than you can chew.
I have 14 places within 3 blocks of the park in Ellensburgs, WA. and have yet to get the stupid pin to stick on the park itself. I will try again later when I have more time between playing FreeCell and Mahjong.

I just used the tutorial, it takes you through some unnecessary steps, so make sure you have a google account and are signed in, then go to the link http://goo.gl/maps/BlM7V and simply click on the EDIT button at the upper left, zoom to your spot, click on the little blue marker in the upper left of the map and place it on your spot, then add a title and description in the appropriate box, click on the marker to change it to the proper color if need (select rich text to use the link option). red for land, blue for water, and light blue for snow.

Added a few spots to fill in. A more complete map would be really nice honestly. You learn your local spots, but it's hard to know where the good flying is when you travel unless you ask around first :-)

I got to thinking about this: I only ride at one place. Yet I know of 7 other places. I've ridden at five of them. People I know have at one of the two I haven't; and the last place looks totally rideable; I just haven't tried it yet.

What about all those alternate buggy fields even though I nor no one else rides there?

One of them is abandoned vacant land with the owners address being in Texas. No fences; no signs; yet no official permission..(I haven't ridden there) All the rest are parks.


Here's a quick map I did listing all the places:

Sting 1.7 - Flow 2, 3, 4, 5 - Reactor 2.2, 2.8, 3.5, 4.4, 5.5 - Yakuza 2.2, 2.7 - JOJO 9
