Do you have a route without a cuesheet, or one that is in a foreign language? Perhaps you uploaded a GPX route file sent to you by a friend, or from another website and need to make it available for voice navigation.

This article will teach you how to use the Trace tool, available to Premium subscribers.

Ride with GPS distinguishes between routes and rides. A ride is a recording of an activity from a GPS unit or mobile app. A route is a plan for a future ride. If you are wanting to turn a recorded ride into a planned route with a cuesheet, you’ll first need to copy the ride into a route.

Prepare to Trace

Pro Tip #1: You can use the Trace tool to make changes to the start/finish of a loop route by starting at any point along the loop and tracing to the end.

  1. First, open the route and click EDIT at the top of the left side panel.
  2. In the left panel, go to EDIT > PREPARE FOR TRACING.
  3. This will cause the red track line to turn grey meaning it is in the background and ready to trace.
  4. Select FOLLOW ROADS in the right side panel.

    This will ensure that the track line snaps to roads as you click along the route.

  5. Trace the route by clicking along the grey path. Be careful to avoid clicking on intersections, since this can cause errors in the cuesheet.
  6. You can trace the grey path exactly, or make changes to the route as desired.

    If you are tracing a loop, you can start your traced route anywhere along the grey path. You are not required to begin at the original start location or finish at the original route finish.

  7. After you’ve traced your route, click SAVE on the left side panel.
  8. A pop-up will prompt you to select UPDATE or SAVE AS NEW at the top. You can add the title, description, and other details about the route.
  9. After your route has been saved, a pop-up will appear alerting you your route has been saved. Click VIEW YOUR ROUTE.

Pro Tip #2: You can also use the Trace tool to change cuesheet languages. While you are tracing the route, the cuesheet will be generated in the language that your web browser is set to.

Congratulations! You now have a complete route with a cuesheet!
