Who can take part
How else can help
Who could not attend can help anyway.
1. upload GPX tracks in the area concerned
2. edit tracks make sure the graph is connected.
3. compile data in Garmin routable format (alternatively verify that openmtbmap.org is useful for this scope).
4. prepare a thematic map, easy to print (with altitude profiles)
5. translate this page in other languages to give the fans even foreigners to partecipate.
During the route will be collected tracks and waypoints of interest for cycling.
The purpose is to create a dedicated map, routable.
Here a complete list of what is mappabile with the tags currently set: Map features
What is needed
Of course, it's needed a mountain bike and a minimum of equipment.
Bicycles like as "trekking" are not reccomended, those as "city" or "road" are inappropriate.
Again, please refer to page of sports program for information and clarification.
Then it would be nice to obtain blocknotes, pen, and if you have a GPS receiver!
- digital camera
- mp3 recorder
- or if you are just hyper-technological, a smartphone with all this!
