This web site is just about ready to go down, I can no longer make changes or edit like I need to.  Please go to the new web site www.ridefortherelay.net.  Sorry but that is the way GoDaddy works.

GPS information

Be watching for the 2014 updates
Steve Conro and Jim Engling put together the Ride for the Relay routes.  We will not post all the information on this Web Site as we want to keep it available for our Riders only and we will down load the routes to your GPS on September 5 at the Motel before and after the Riders meeting.  All you have to do is ask.

GPS information:  I received the following information from our leader Steve Conro.
 
Garmin Mapsource, the program the routing was created and maintained on is having a harder time uploading the route to newer GPS units.   Garmin is trying to protect their map data so they've gone to a program called Basecamp that uses the maps on your GPS.   Basecamp is a free download from Garmin.

I urge everyone who wants the route on there GPS to download/install this program and learn how to install a map file to your own GPS.  It will save Jim a ton of time and aggravation trying to load off his laptop the night before the ride.   Its possible he may not even be able to load it. 

There is tutorials online to help.  If your not too computer friendly then get your kids (or better yet, grand kids to help you).  Make a test route and try loading your self to get comfortable.  When you get the hang of it contact me and I'll send you the file for the Ride for the Relay.  Make sure your GPS can handle 15 individual routes at once which most can by now.  If you have any questions please contact me and I'll try to help.   I will also have available a separate file with just the hotels as favorites.  So if you don't care or don't want to bother with the route, you can just load the hotels in one step.  Once again using basecamp. 

Thanks so much,  See you in Sept.

The following units have the capability to support custom routes.
 

Quest/Quest 2

StreetPilot 2600, 2700, 2800, 7200, and 7500 series

Any Zumo unit
 

Nuvi 500, 700, 705, 800, 805, 1400, 1600, 2200, 2300, and 3700 series

Any of these units will be able to support custom routes, though some can support more than others. However, the absolute minimum number of routes is 10 with any of these units, so you can set up at least 10 routes if not more.
