Here's a file that covers most of the trails at The Cove. I think I've got one or two of the nasty jeep trails that I've been on with Sam but, otherwise, they should just be the regular trails.

Indeed, a top quality ride leader. By contrast I am terrible, missing turns and forgetting where I am. ;)

Can someone explain how this info is used? I have read up on it briefly using google but some "real life" ideas would be appreciated. I am usually leading the group of guys I ride with so it would be great to be more capable.


thanks!!

Hopefully someone else will chime in.
Im GPS retarded and I still use paper maps and memorization. I have a gps and still dont know how to use it for following tracks.
Its one of my goals to use it on our Kentucky trip this sumer.

There are different approaches to this. I took the cheap approach and bought an old, cheap, rugged android phone (samsung galaxy rugby pro SGH-I547). I don't have an account or SIM card for it. It's just for GPS. I then use Locus Map Pro GPS software on the phone. I've got a bar pad that holds the phone.

The other approach is to get a dedicated GPS like one of the Garmin models.
