Great News! Davis Bike Club has purchased Bike Club account access on RideWithGPS (RWGPS), the website that provides bike route mapping and cue sheets for our club rides. What this means for you, as a Davis Bike Club member is that you may now access RWGPS features normally available only to those who pay for it. All who are members in good standing may take advantage of this for free. Please be aware that the RWGPS Bike Club account provides many features, but only for maps that have been loaded into DBC’s Club account Route Library. All of the routes for our regular rides and numerous others have been loaded into DBC’s Route Library. Over time, the Route Library will expand as ride and tour leaders add new routes to the library. The following are among the features now available to those who are interested in taking advantage of this new member benefit:
-Ability to print out route maps as well as cue sheets
-Ability to download routes to a Garmin GPS unit
-Ability to use a free RideWithGPS App to download maps and cue sheets to your smartphone
-Ability through the App to get audible and visual turn by turn directions on your smartphone
-Ability through the App to track your ride and many useful parameters such as speed, average speed, elevation gain, and ride duration.
