Great Rides APP just gets better


Great Rides APP

Have you discovered the Great Rides APP? With over 600 pages of content stacked with elevation profiles, trail descriptions, trail providers and maps including offline tracking – the app is fast becoming a must have for riders, with maps for each trail section almost done. While the completed app has only been out for just under a year, app downloads and user numbers are steadily climbing.

Gary Patterson of Mapworks who produce the app has been busy revisiting many of the trails to make updates, such as the Hauraki Rail Trails new Miranda section, the Lake Wairarapa section on the Rimutaka Cycle Trail, and the bypass of the locked gates on the Around the Mountains Trail.  He will be returning to other Great Rides mid year to make even more changes.

Mapworks also donate 10% of any proceeds from advertising from the app to the trails, which can be used for trail improvements and maintenance.

If you don’t yet have this great resource, the app is still free to download from iTunes and Play Stores.
