RidewithGPS Maps Offline on Your Smartphone

I just finished the one-week Pedal Across Wisconsin Northwoods bicycle tour. Many organized tours like Pedal Across Wisconsin make their routes available to participants on RidewithGPS.com.

While I don’t use my smartphone for navigation, I do enjoy viewing the route on my smartphone beforehand. However, this can be a problem when reliable internet or cellular service isn’t available in remote areas like the Northwoods. In these cases, I find that it pays to download the files directly to my smartphone so that they are available offline, as illustrated below.

However, this can’t be done with a RidewithGPS free account. You must have a Basic account or higher to download the maps to your smartphone.
