This involves:

2. edit tracks make sure the graph is connected.
3. compile data in Garmin routable format (alternatively verify that 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.

Mapping tour

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!

Also reccomended:

  • digital camera
  • mp3 recorder
  • or if you are just hyper-technological, a smartphone with all this!
