Event Supplier: MapMyTracks
With your training done and the event around the corner it’s a great time to get set up to show your progress live on the official event map.
Friends and family can follow your progress live during each stage of the Ride Across Britain with Map My Tracks.
It’s easy to get set up ready to track live during the event.
Step 1. Log into Map My Tracks and click on ‘Attend’ on the RAB event. If you do not have a Map My Tracks account you can create a free account.
Step 2. Download one of the Map My Tracks apps (see below) to your phone.
Step 3. On each day of the event, start the Map My Tracks app tracking in ‘Online public’ mode. This will present your live location on the Map My Tracks event map for friends, family or sponsors to follow.
What app should I use?
For performance (high accuracy) tracking use the Map My Tracks OutFront app, available for iOS and Android. OutFront will broadcast your progress every few seconds. When used on ‘Online public’ mode it will stream full performance details including speed, distance, cadence, power, heart rate live to the event maps.
Live tracking available as an in-app purchase which costs £2.99. An additional power pack may be required to track live over long durations.
For long distance (low accuracy) tracking use the Map My Tracks Endurance app, available for Android only. Endurance is purely a location tracker. It does not provide performance statistics but can have the update interval extended in order to preserve the phone’s battery life. Live tracking is free when using Endurance.
Where do people see my progress?
When a rider is tracking live during the event their progress will be shown on the event maps on Map My Tracks or on the event maps on the RAB website.
