using a phone to follow routes

Don’t have a bike computer with gps…no problem

I was asked the question on how to open GPX/Route files on a phone and right away I thought of using bikewithgps to do an explanation video to find out you had to subscribe to use the feature of following a route on your phone, I then moved to strava to find out you can’t upload gpx files prepared in another app so I had a google to come up with a solution for you all to follow the routes on your phone.

The winner BIKEGPX.

This is an incredibly easy app to use to follow routes on your phone and there is no charge for the basic features which is all you need to to get started. Rather than writing the instruction I made a short video to hep you all.

Sites required

mtbdonegal.ie for the routes

bikegpx.com to set up the file

App Required

bikegpx

I hope this helps you to follow and enjoy the routes and as always if you have any questions feel free to drop me a line.
