The Regional Embed is the cornerstone of the Tourism account. Once you’ve got your route library and POI library populated with your region’s best routes and points of interest, you can use them to generate an interactive map that you can embed on your website. Using the regional embed, visitors to your site can see the best routes in your area, click through to access individual routes which they can then navigate on the Ride with GPS app or their cycling computer, or print out a map and full cuesheet.

Before you get started, make sure your tourism account should have a filled-out Route Library and POI Library with a liberal use of tags on all items to be shown on the map.
