Process of tracing and monitoring the route

 

Midnight sun gravel

We ride with bicycle every single km of the route in different seasons, sometimes in different sessions and sometimes all together when time allows.

The routes are developed entirely on STRAVA. We test navigation with Strava app on mobile and with Garmin devices.

We tried also to upload the GPX in varius platforms to see how they behave; we discovered that some systems effects the route course due to in-build algorithms. Occasionally this happen also when selecting "maintaining original route" during importing of GPX

The GPX we are providing to you is clearly tested and I can guarantee 100% accuracy mainly when navigating on devices that support Strava.

PS. Forestry activity sometimes effect the routes.

You will be crossing occasionally private property; this is unsupported event and for this reason be respect-full and enjoy the unique privilege of Everyman's right
