MMMMM 2012 GPS Route
Hi All, .gpx file for the midwinter ride attached. For more details see here

Rosie's Notes:

Routes and waypoints are attached.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
They are designed to run with the NZ Open GPS Project maps, and have been tested on the maps created between May 17<SUP>th</SUP> and July 5<SUP>th </SUP>(Having up to date maps is very important, this route didnít work with the maps I downloaded in October). Maps can be downloaded here:

The maps either run through Mapsource, or, for newer GPSses (e.g 62s) you can copy the *.img files straight from \Program files\NZ Open Autorouting GPS project\ into the appropriate directory on the GPS. <o:p></o:p>
I will attempt to help out if anyone is having problems getting the maps and/or routes onto their GPS. But if people are having trouble, I would respectfully suggest that they also carry the routesheets as a backup. <o:p></o:p>
There are five routes, and a variety of waypoints. Some waypoints are useful things like fuel and food, some are just for navigation. Iíve also included a few waypoints for petrol stations that arenít on the main route. <o:p></o:p>
Since weíll be corner-manning through the Waipunga first thing on Saturday, the routes all start from where we regroup in Minginui. <o:p></o:p>
The routes should be fairly self-explanatory: <o:p></o:p>
Sat AM Fuel Ė for people who need to go to Wairoa for fuel<o:p></o:p>
Sat AM No Fuel Ė for people who do not need to go to Wairoa for fuel<o:p></o:p>
To avoid confusion, Iíd recommend deleting the route you donít intend using. <o:p></o:p>
The lunch/fuel stop at Waikaremoana is marked as a waypoint (hopefully a little knife and fork, but who knows)<o:p></o:p>
Both routes end up at the pub in Tiniroto. From there, itís time to choose a new route:<o:p></o:p>
Sat PM Short Ė the (slightly) more direct route to Matawai<o:p></o:p>
Sat PM Long Ė incorporates an extra gravel loop on the way to Matawai. <o:p></o:p>
Both end up at the Matawai pub. <o:p></o:p>
On Sunday, there is only one route Ė Sun<o:p></o:p>
The lunch stop in Opotiki is marked as a waypoint, as is Clintís house where the ride finishes. <o:p></o:p>
