Tour de France route
« on: June 24, 2018, 12:00:49 PM »
I am trying to work out how to plan or copy part of stage 9 of this years Tour de France. Cambrai to Roubaix is the part I am interested in. I have a Tom Tom Rider and have done routes before using TomTom MyDrive. There are several maps available online showing this stage but how do I convert those routes into GPX files? Any sites worth looking at? I downloaded 'tyre' but it does not work on a MAC.

If you can't find a .gpx file of the route online, you could use something like MyRouteApp to create it and save it

Well, that was a bit of a faff. I managed to do it in the end - many thanks for the info! MyRoute came in handy there and I was able to create a section of Stage 9 in the upcoming Tour de France. I am over there a week yesterday. As well as a general bimble around Northern France on the Tiger, I can now (thanks to you) ride the part of stage 9 I was particularly keen on. Cheers again rtwo!

I like the sound of that muddyrider! The above mentioned was a 'trial version'. Worked fine but in two weeks they will be after my cash. Will certainly look into that, cheers!

Well, having returned just on Saturday, I can report it all went well. Interestingly, the Tour de France can go wherever the hell it likes. This translates to trying to navigate the wrong way down a one way street etc. We managed to ride 13 of the 15 sections of cobbles but in 30 degree heat, I had enough when just 5km or so from the ultimate destination - I needed beer! Now looking forward to the TV coverage to see if the Tour really does follow every little twist and turn!

It was a blast! I heard the winner of this years 'Paris-Roubaix' Peter Sagan had an average speed of 27mph over the whole race, including the cobbles. I only managed an average of 18mph and I was on a motorcycle!

No! But it looks like fun - sort of. They have their work cut out, especially on the mountain stages.
