The increasingly prevalent view that recommendation is a conversation between user and system is driving a renewed interest in approaches to system design that involve the user in meaningful ways. In addition to this the proliferation of mobile devices and the near-ubiquity of sensing technologies means that there are now many opportunities to capture real-life experiences, in real-time, providing a new source of raw material for case-based reasoning. In this paper we consider the availability of real-world exercise information, in this cases corresponding to jogging routes, and meth- ods by which we can involve a user in recommending such routes. We describe the Exercise Builder, a proof-of-concept application that attempts to help visitors to a new city to plan their jogging routes by combining case retrieval, interactive adaptation, and multimedia explanation in a single online service.
