I'm going to be riding it for the first time.
Does anyone know what the access to the campsite is like? I've got the option of borrowing a comfy campervan to get a good nights sleep it, but it's a reasonably wide coachbuilt that I've not driven before so I'm not overly comfortable with taking it down lots of narrow lanes.
In fact, does anyone know the specifics of where the campsite is? Either the details on the website aren't that great or I'm having eye site problems today.Posted 8 years ago
which is stoney lane?
Had a look at the map and it looks like we aren't going down Stoney Lane. 😥
If you look at the map, where it says "2009 Exmoor Explorer Aug 2nd 10.00am", its the bridlepath just to the left of that.
Not sure if the organisers would be too pleased if we took a detour?Posted 8 years ago
Yup thats because I informed Stephen that one of the files seemed a bit dodgy – references in it to a walk in the mendips and wouldn't display properly on my comp. I have sent him 3 GPX files I exported from my MM V5 and they seem to be OK – I guess he'll put them up very soon. FXRPosted 8 years ago
I have used TCX convertor to merge the 3 GPX files into a GPX and TCX course file – I uploaded it last night to my garmin and seems to work OK but have not tested it compared with the supplied route as yet – PM me if you want a copy but as I said I haven't made sure it works 100% yet but my garmin shows it OK as a route so….Posted 8 years ago

To bring you all up to date………….
The camping is the sports field right in the middle of the village, because of the village fete no access until after 5pm on the Saturday. You are welcome to camp Sunday as well at no extra charge. If you want to come on Friday that's fine too, but let us know as we have a different (but very close) field organised for that so you don't have to move on Saturday.
Pretty much all the tracks are no problem in the wet, there will be serious puddles, but no bottomless perdition. The forecast is quite decent for Sunday, so fingers crossed.
The route will be all marked out, but check the map anyway.
GPS has been giving me aggro!
This evening (thanks to Foxy) fresh verions of gpx and mmo will go up. We've been using Memory Map all winter in the planning with no probs, then when we start posting stuff all sorts of old stuff seems to get sucked up from MM's bowels.
So apologies, I hope it's all correct now.
I've done it as 3 separate sections for 2 reasons, smaller files and leaves the Long Loop as an extra. Can you join it up OK?
Any MM geniuses on here? How can I "clean" the map of any old routes? I used to just delete, which worked fine, but this time it's taken all the lines away but left waypoints behind.Posted 8 years ago
on MM I use the hide tracks routes etc – if you delete the track the waypoints still show up and then you have to delete each waypoint. Goto top left menu option – can't remember which one its the one with import in the list – at the bottom it says hide all or hide certain types of ovelay also you can show all of the overlays and delete them them from there.Posted 8 years ago
