If you've ever wondered how route creation and ride mapping works, you're going to love this episode.

My guest is Eric Semianczuk, co-founder of Sherpa Map. I'm guessing you haven't heard of them… yet.

But the cycling route map service they're building is incredible, using AI and granular LIDAR data compiled over weather, surface type, and elevation data to create the most sophisticated route data you can imagine.

And they just keep improving it. It's wild, and in this episode, Eric explains how they got started, how mapping and route building works, and how they're using AI to predict everything from surface type to how many calories you'll need and even advise on tire selection for your next race.
