Submitting Routes to KBC Club Account
We want to grow the list of routes in RwGPS for the enjoyment of all members. So, please submit your favorite routes to a KBC Route Manager! To submit a route for sharing through the KBC Club Account either export the route from another program (such as Strava or Map My Ride) OR create the route in your individual RwGPS account, make sure the privacy setting is set to “public,” and then copy the URL/link for that route into an email message and send it to routesandrides@ kalamazoobicycleclub.org.
When submitting a new route to be included in the KBC Route Library please provide a bit of a description of the route. Information to include might be: type of road surface (we will assume all routes are paved roads unless otherwise stated); hazards/cautions of the route; if it’s particularly hilly or scenic or other attributes of the ride; and, unless it’s obvious, you can include where the start/finish is for parking purposes.
