TIPS:
  • Label all Waypoints for each ride as “LL-nn Name” – LL being a two letter label for the ride, such as NI, TT, SS etc. Make these unique, your two digit nn number ought to be a sequence number so that you can always easily find the next waypoint by searching for ‘LL-‘, then look through the list of waypoints.
  • Duplicate fuel stops and treat them as ride specific waypoints, include them in the sequence numbering too.
  • Include key routing markers as sequenced waypoints too where needed, when you’re on the ride, these are no different to a normal, stopping way point.
  • Allow min of 5mins per fuel stop, 8 if with others in a group. Stop every 4 hours for min of one 15 min fuelstop. Once every 8 should be for 20 mins and food.
  • Carry small plastic zip lock bag for log book and pens, use bag to safely store receipts. Pre-write out the Stop n, Name portions within the logbook so that the amount filled in while stopped is minimised.
