Thanks for the interesting reply. I was looking for sites to find especially beautiful cycling and hiking tracks.
Now I realize that this is the wrong side for this purpose.
But I will upload from now on the self-created tracks to help with your concept.

Dear austrian_fuzzy,
it isn't an aim to share the uploaded tracks among the users of this site. Tracks are not 'confidental' so it is not impossible to share them, but...
The tracks are used by map editors to draw new roads and to increase accuracy of existing roads. In our opinion there's no any reason to use raw tracks for an ordinary user. The downloadable maps in various formats are out for our visitors. Why would you like to use raw tracks instead of maps?

I want to make a suggestion for this great site.


Would it be possible to add a link to the tracks?
I find tracks only by emails to the category subscription and articles in the forums.
It would also be recommended when adding new tracks, to fill it in a form, containing:
1. In which country is the track?
2. In what region?
3. The length of the track.
4. What is the nature of the track, cycling, hiking, canoeing, or car, etc.
5. Is it a circuit or an one way track?
6. A description of the track (if possible)
7. Is the start and end points of the track reachable by public transport? What kind, railway, bus, number of the line?
Ultimately, the tracks should be searched and found exactly according to these criteria.
Probably hundreds of tracks have been uploaded here, but it is impossible to find them.
Many members spend much time and love to the tracks and their work should also be appreciated.
Now I hope nobody is offended by these comments.
