GPS Discussion / GPS route names ?
« on: June 22, 2012, 04:41:00 pm »
Maybe the answer is in the forum somewhere but I was not able to find it.  I read the GPS document for the naming convention but I do not seem to be able to follow it for route names.  I have been able to load all the GPS information for the NT, LC, NL, and LE but when I tried to select a route there is a long list of routes with names I cannot correlate to a map segment readily.

For example if I only imported NT01v007.gpx into basecamp and I see a list of routes named:

F01010
F01020
F01040
F01060
F01080
.....

Is there way to easily determine what the route name matches on the maps without creating a spreadsheet?  The route names (numbers) do not appear to increment in order?  How are other riders handling the long list of cryptic route names?  Thank you for your assistance.

Gear Talk / Bicycle Shipping Cases
« on: July 16, 2010, 12:23:26 pm »
Preparing for RAA in 2011 and inquiring what folks use to ship their bicycle to the starting point?  I read the article on ACA.   I am looking for a case that is durable, will hold the bicycle pretty much assembled, and does not cost a lot.  Can you rent cases from somewhere?  Thank you in advance.

Gear Talk / Re: Trek 520

Bought 2 2009 Trek 520 last year (one for and one for my wife) and so far so good.  We have done short fully loaded rides in preparing for RAA in 2011.  In 2009 Trek reduced the gearing so no need to retrofit.  The challenging part is building out the 520 for touring.  What racks, panniers, fenders, seat, etc.  Selecting the bicycle is the easy part!
