A WordPress plugin is available for cyclists. Just installed it here, and it seems* to work. The following example (for testing) is the ride we did on July 24th, 2011. Instructions for use are on bikes.org.uk. Thanks for the suggestion Chris! From ClubShorts e-newsletter for CTC Member Groups.

A WP plugin is a piece of software that adds functionality like a smartphone app, except that plugins are installed on websites, not phones. Nice work, Mark Taylor (who wrote the plugin). GPSies, which the plugin runs with, is also an impressive – and fast – service. Is that because it's German? Using the plugin to display your own bike rides requires a login on GPSies (free) and some kind of GPS device, a Garmin for example. Oh, and a website, or blog, running WordPress.
WordPress usage: add the following into a Post (blank line above and below):
[gpsies fileId=bomvjbwjmpgtonsu show=full]
For the map without the preceding text info ('maponly'):
[gpsies fileId=bomvjbwjmpgtonsu show=maponly]
(fileId is taken from the route's URL in GPSies)
[Edit: 'Description' doesn't seem to work]
