It's easy to use a route you've captured through the app or another device and use it to create a Classic Route, Event or Challenge in your Business account.
1. Verify the Route
If you have a route you'd like to use as a Classic Route, Event or Challenge, it's important to verify that the route and GPS information for the route is correct. All digital gps devices suffer from "GPS drift", so it is common for the route recorded to be slightly different from the route actually ridden.
Directly importing your route without verifying it was correct could lead to some undesirable effects. For example, if you were riding along a bike path parallel to a busy road and the gps track recorded it as if you were riding in the road, the next person to follow your route would be directed to ride on the busy road.
2. Create a fresh, clean route.
In your Individual account, use our Build from Selected tool to draw a clean, safe route and save it as an unpublished route.
Explore > Find your route > Click the box > Click Build from Selected at bottom > Draw a fresh route atop the previous one, with correct Start/Finish and with gps drift/route errors edited out. Save as a new route.
NOTE: If you are interested in printing Ride Cards for your Classic Route, Event, or Challenge, you will need to build the route from scratch while logged in to your Business Account. This is necessary in order to generate the Cue Sheet. To learn more about Ride Cards, click here.
3. Export it from your Individual Account
Profile drop down > My Rides > Click cog icon of the route and select Download gpx/tcx.
4. Import as Classic, Event or Challenge Route
Log into your Business Account > Create (Classic, Event or Challenge) > Import from completed Ride.
We are working on streamlining this process, but you'll discover that it's quite simple.
