My favourite app to record tracks is everytrail. It has a free version
that lets you record tracks and add photos and waypoints. The recorded
tracks are saved in your personal space at everytrail.com and it's
very easy to get a gpx file from there.

By default, everytrail uses Google maps but you can change the view to
cloudmade (select the "street" map at the "options" menu),
opencyclemap (select the "terrain" map), and others.
