When I started openmtbmap.org my primary goal was to get more Mountainbikers to participate in Openstreetmap. From virtually zero MTB Routes and ways classified with mtb:scale, Openmtbmap.org has changed this tremendously. Currently around 2000 people ( ~15.000 Pageviews) visit openmtbmap.org each day. Every day up to 3000 maps are downloaded causing ~ 500GB of traffic.

There are many more blogs/press articles about openmtbmap.org – if you would like to see your post/article referenced here, drop a comment, this is just a selection (last full update June 2010)
