Your next great bike trip
There are some destinations that everyone wants to visit. I'm lucky enough to have spent years touring most of them and more than five years planning trips based on my experience for RiDE readers – so I know what works with this kind of tour (and they've told me what didn't). These new trips are tried, tested and refined – and ready to ride.
How they work
Each tour consists of daily routes, which can be downloaded as individual GPX files (for TomTom or uploading to a compatible phone app) or as a single larger file containing all the routes and some additional waypoints for Garmin/BMW sat navs. Each trip has an accompanying pack of route notes and marked-up maps – which isn't necessary if you really trust your GPX… but I'd strongly recommended it for getting the most out of the tour.
