    what is wrong? I havent changed anything. The link should still work.

    I am putting together a database of ontario gpx files for dual sporting. If anyone has interesting loops please send it to me with comments and date you last rode it. I will add them to my pile and share here.

    It's a text file. How can I get that into Basecamp? Thanks for the help.

    EDIT= Ok so I have trouble following directions. Right click the link, save as,...works perfectly. Thanks again keener.

    Thanks for posting this keener - can you offer me a tip though. I am also having trouble utilizing the file. When I click your link it automatically opens your file as a text document. If I save it as a .gpx, and then hover my mouse over the downloaded file name MICHAEL....gpx it still says that it is a text file.
    I am using Google Chrome on Windows 7. I have tried importing the file to Google Earth with no success...feeling kinda silly here :shog

    It is a txt file.

    You need something like Basecamp or Mapsource, or loading it into some other program to read it.

    It you have Basecamp or Mapsource and you can't get it to load there, look at the the program assigned to the .gpx file extension and make sure it is a mapping program.

    You must be using Windows. By default windows hides the file extensions. So you may be changing the name to whatever.gpx while the extension is still a text file. (whatever.gpx.txt)

    Click on the link, you should see the content of the file in your browser, then go to File > save as.. Or press ctrl+s and save the file with extension .gpx

    Having said that regardless of the extension of the file, you would be able to load it into basecamp.

    Why not just buy BackRoads Ontario and support a local Canadian company?

    Sharing GPX files has nothing to do with not supporting a local company.

    I've bought their maps. They can do much better for adv riders.

    Not saying there is anything wrong with sharing GPX files - just saying that BackRoads Ontario has a lot of nice trails laid out for you already and their quality is pretty decent and accurate. They don't have them all for sure, but it's a good start.
