I would recommend more than one gps in the group. We also carried paper maps, never used em. The gps routes are pretty foolproof.
Not really my story to tell so I'll summarize. It had to do with the people on the route with him, not the route itself. Issues with the bike and nobody wanting to help or someone causing a crash which he got hurt and they telling him it wasn't their issue. Just basically people being dicks. I'd never leave someone in a lurch like that regardless if it screwed up my ride.
One of the reasons I was considering doing this by myself.
