Who knows your own environment better than you? You are familiar with all nice and winding roads. Why not share it with others so they can benefit from your knowledge? And vice versa of course: if others make a nice route in their own environment, it’s nice if you can ride that route.
Thus was born the idea of a ‘chain route’: a route which is made by many motorcyclists, each creating a small link of the route, and each link starting where another one ends. Then everyone can download the necessary files to compose a nice route and to go out for a ride. You decide where you will start and end.
TOMTOM RIDER IN MIND
The routes on this website are made with the TomTom RIDER in mind. Of course they can also be used in other TomTom or Garmin devices, or any other navigation device. So, you can use them in your car too!
EASIER TO USE TYRE
Creating a route can be done with the TomTom RIDER (or another navigation device). But it is easier to use Tyre to do the job.
THE CONVENIENCE OF TIRE
You can create a route with the TomTom RIDER (or another navigation device). But it is easier to use Tyre.
You can view, download and edit the available files with Tyre. Use as many as you want. Hopefully you feel like supplementing the route with new links. Sending a route (or a link) is very easy with Tyre, but it is also possible in other ways.
If you want to create and submit a new piece of route, you can pick up the thread of the route wherever you want. If several routes depart from one place, that’s no problem. That only gives more possibilities. There is one request: if possible, join one of the existing start or end points. It is best when the links connect directly to each other as much as possible.
CREATE A ROUTE ON YOUR COMPUTER
Create a route in your TomTom RIDER. Or: Download and install Tyre. With this you can very easily create beautiful routes on your computer.
Available files from this website have a name, starting with the abbreviation of the country, followed by the names of the starting and ending points, e.g. ‘NL Amersfoort-Harderwijk’. If you send in a route, it would be nice if it had the proper name already.
Routes used to be displayed here. Changes on the Google website made it impossible to continue displaying the overview. Now we have this new approach: the overview is made part of Tyre. And maybe that is easier after all.
The links are easily reversible if you use Tyre. For example: the route from Kampen to Harderwijk can be turned into a route from Harderwijk to Kampen with one click. This is an easy way to link several route parts to create a route that you like.
