RWGPS file gotchas

Postby lars » Fri Sep 04, 2015 6:47 pm

The newsletter points to GPS file on Ride With GPS. That's great. But, at least on day 1, there are a few errors. The RWGPS route is about 64 miles instead of the published 51 miles. A large amount of the difference is a 14 mile loop thrown in at the beginning on the RWGPS route. Also, around mile 21 (on the uncorrected day 1 map) the route exits Old US 30 on to Sutton Creek Rd and then comes back onto old US 30 a few miles later. I believe this is an error and the route is expected to stay on old US30.

I have not looked at all the other maps yet. I would at least do a rough comparison of the distances and the climbing with the published numbers before I trust them.And if they are different....wonder which one is correct.

If all of the technology fails, just follow the pink arrows.

In one of the route descriptions there was a mention of a loop around Baker City for those who feel the first day's route is too short. It is not shown on the route map - although you can see the yellow route line in the top left corner entering Baker City.

Oddly the Maprika files and the RWGPS files have it but not the JPGs.
