Love your iphone and yet to invest in GPS for you bike?
Virtually every iphone owning cyclist uses an app (or two) to track their progress and favourite routes. However, surprisingly few ‘import’ the route detail for the Sportives they enter.
Whilst all apps do not provide this functionality, we have detailed below just how simple it is to import using free app Cyclometer.
Upload the free app from cyclemeter from and then simply download the gpx file for our rides as follows.
- Select the route you have entered to ride from the link on our website which will transfer you to the Ride with GPS site page.
- Export the GPX Track file (.gpx) onto your desktop, and then mail it to yourself.
- On your iPhone, tap the mail attachment you want to import in Mail – You will be prompted about which application you want to open the file. Choose Cyclemeter.
- Cyclemeter will be launched, and will display a page showing a map and settings. Tap Import. The file will be imported, and you will be shown the Info page for the ride.
IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE….if you get distracted by the beautiful countryside and miss a sign, pull out your iphone and get back on track!
