    Pretty cool, and useful for scoping out rides in new areas. Pretty much the same as this:

    Of course, these tracks might hi-light trails that cyclists from all over the region love to ride.

    Or the tracks might show a horrible trail that one demented guy keeps riding over and over again.

    Not that I would know anything about that.

    Or, it might be not be a good indicator of popular riding spots, but instead be a better indicator of the habits of the most narcissistic segment of the riding population.

    Just remember, if you are on your way to a KOM and there's anyone on the trail ahead of you, it is good etiquette to yell "STRAAAVVVAAA!!!" at the top of your lungs as soon as they are within earshot so that they can clear off the trail immediately and not to impede your progress toward glory.

    Please refer to Rule #43 as that behaviour falls under that.

    There's a couple faint lines like that up in 3 Stage, not surprised!

    Suspiciously few tracks on the Bruce in my old neck of the woods (Terra Cotta).

    What are the trails by Erin?

    Hey, I do that whether there's anyone on the trail or not.

    Unfortunately due to oxygen debt, it is often barely audible, even to myself.

    More like a croak than a yell, really...

    Those are private property, not open to the public I am afraid.
