The RiDE Guide to The Alps (and other mountains)

Routes for the RiDE Guide to The Alps

This page contains all the downloadable and electronic information about the routes in the RiDE Guide to The Alps. Click on the titles to open a Google Maps route. Please note: when the high passes are shut, these links may not display the correct route. Each route also has a GPX file: just click on the link to download the GPX file to your machine and open it with your sat nav's software. The GPX files will plug straight into a Garmin/BMW sat nav and a TomTom Rider 400/410 with no problems (for Garmin/BMW we recommend importing them through Basecamp). If you use an older TomTom, you can use the free Tyre software to convert the Google Maps routes into the correct .itn format, or the new MyRouteApp system to convert the GPX to ITN for your sat nav. Click here to get Tyre

NB: Some PC users have had trouble downloading the files. If you have any difficulties, please email ride@ride.co.uk with "GPX request" as the subject line and specify the files you require. We'll email them as soon as we can.
