Navigation

Ride with GPS

The good people at Ride with GPS have recently been in touch and suggested I have an "Event Account" - the benefits of this are that participants can download routes for use off-line for free (so you don't need to use data nor need a paid for RwGPS account).

Event page on RwGPS

GPX

Meantime I've published the GPX files for Garmin/other GPS units - here they are:

Please note: a final route check and then 3 days of sign putting out may bring to light closed roads and deteriorated tarmac so there can be last minute changes, these will be emailed to you.

 

What 3 Words

We use W3W for precise locations on the event - it's particularly useful for pinpointing riders who need assistance around the course and directing broom vans, First Aid and mechanics.

Example: Broughton HQ location
