RidewithGPS image

The RidewithGPS online app lets you select local routes from a worldwide database, provide turn-by turn navigation cues on a smartphone (Android or iOS) and design routes on your home computer. 

GPS has almost entirely replaced arrows painted on the pavement for recreational club rides. RidewithGPS is of great value in instruction and in explaining tricky urban routes to other cyclists. Anyone can access the map database online. With a paid account, you can type in detailed cues and rider’s phones will read them aloud as they approach each decision point during a ride. It will even lead you back to a route if you take a wrong turn! If an an organization purchases a group account, members can sign up to get turn-by-turn navigation for free on the organization’s routes.
