In our profiles on this website, a few of the fields ask for the Nearest hotel/motel/accomodation, Nearest Campground, and the Nearest Bike Shop. Most everyone puts a distance value, ie 4 miles. But I have noticed these fields are not limited to mileage and have room for more info. For instance on my profile I have:
Nearest Bike Shop 4 miles http://bayoubicycles.com 504-488-1946
This seems much more informative to the traveler. What are you thoughts? Maybe this is something we should all implement.
