Navigation & Course maps
All courses will be marked, but you will need to be alert if you are going to navigate using the course markers alone.
Ride for Pain is pleased to be able to help you learn how to use your smart phone to navigate using the free Ride With GPS app. You can use this knowledge for other rides too.
Ride With GPS offers lots of functionality and you are encouraged to become a member, but “Starter” is free and you will get complete turn by turn navigation at this membership level for this ride if you want to use your iphone or Android device. See below for more.

We have used Ride with GPS (see above links) so you can download a GPS file to navigate by. You can use a GPS device if you have one, but now you can also use your smartphone to navigate. This will increase battery use so consider using a battery pack. To be able to see your phone while you are riding, consider using a handlebar mount.
PLEASE NOTE: Import errors can occur. You should check your imported course and cue sheets carefully to ensure their accuracy.
The Ride with GPS app is the best app to use with this ride.
The Ride for Pain will unlock free turn by turn navigational functionality on your iphone or android device.
