Example 1 – A company retreat
Ride with GPS took a company retreat for the weekend at Treo Ranch in Eastern Oregon. Here’s the event page we put together to get all of the employees ready to ride for three days. Notice all the tabs that have day-specific info, gear recommendations, and scroll down to see the list of individual routes to be ridden.

Check out the full event page.

Example 2 – Gran Fondo
All routes begin at the same spot, but there are several route length options. Riders can choose which route to take.

Check out the full event page.

Example 3 – Coastal Tour
Each day of riding ends there the next day begins. Although the routes aren’t connected, they can be shown all at once to show a continuous tour.

This example also includes the use of additional tabs to show more information like camping arrangements, weather, and gear lists.

Each route begins with a number to put them in the order to be ridden.
