RideWithGPS is our favorite route building and navigating tool - we've used it exclusively for our adventures over the past couple years and continue to be impressed with it's user friendliness and dependability. We also always have paper maps on us - and referencing both physical and digital guides have served us well over hundreds of miles.
In addition to being our go-to for pre and during ride nav needs, we're excited that Ride With GPS has now upped the game for post ride sharing with their new Ride Reports platform. What's a Ride Report, you ask? It's an easy way to share your cycling experience - map, metrics, photos and words in a simple to use tool. They will even help you get going with Auto Draft, which will create an outline of your ride with a single click. Then, you can modify the draft with their editor.
Want to see an example? Check our first Ride Report showcasing from our last ride: The Sweet Three Day Stampede. The ride was in the company of Jude Gerace, founder of Sugar Wheel Works and Molly Sugar, who works at Ride with GPS (as is the co-founder of Friends on Bikes) and we had a pretty magic weekend in the rolling hills along the Deschutes river!
