via GPS devices is a groundbreaking, state of the
art tool for following cycling routes and we are one of the most cutting
edge cycling companies when it comes to incorporating this technology into
our events. We strongly believe navigating using GPS devices
is the wave of the future for cycling events and we will continue to incorporate,
support, and encourage and the use of GPS device on all of our events.
have been incorporating GPS devices into our navigation systems
since 2006 and now heavily
rely on it ourselves. We use the actual GPS track
points we take in person to define all of our master routes and we use these
master GPS routes as the actual route on our road maps. In fact, the routes
printed on our paper maps are exact same as the ones loaded onto our GPS
units since we generate our paper maps directly from our GPS mapping software.
We also use the master GPS routes to determine the specific distances
listed on our cue sheets, acquire elevation data, and generate our elevation
and gross climb profiles.
