Route Notes. Get familiar with many of the geographic, cultural, and architectural landmarks you’ll see on the ride. Not to mention where to find tasty grub!
2) RideWithGPS SITE: You can preview the route on your desktop by going to https://ridewithgps.com/routes/14315541. But that doesn’t help all that much when you’re on the road. For on-road GPS assistance, check out the next two options.
3) RideWithGPS APP: You can use the free RideWithGps app for Turn-by-Turn directions on the road. Voice directions are also available but it’ll cost ya’.
To find the route:
– Download the app at https://ridewithgps.com/app
– Search for “Official Tour de Laemmle 2016 Route”
IMPORTANT: You must select this EXACT route – make sure it has the word “official.” There are a plethora of other “Tour de Laemmle” routes that are old and obsolete. Don’t be led astray.
TIP: Once you’ve found the route, you can download the route for offline viewing (so it doesn’t sap your battery or data plan during the ride).
4) GARMIN: If you own a Garmin, it more than likely supports GPX files for Turn-by-Turn directions. Newer devices may even offer voice directions. To make all this happen, you must first download the GPX file and upload it to your Garmin.
