    they responded: "Unfortunately we can only distribute it on Rever because of an agreement with the landowner. There is a way to download it from the desktop Rever app into a gpx file though."

    Since the files are apparently not live until sunday this makes any route prep not possible unless they release the files now on rever and one of you kind paid rever subscribers exports them and posts a link somewhere. Export is not available on free version. Extra complicated but not organizer's fault.

    So for last minute folks, just bring the registration form, cash, and an unwrapped toy and we're good to go?

    Yes, correct.
    Yeah I forgot that's all it was.

    The routes can't be posted "online" due to the ever changing land that is coal country. If someone finds the route in 5 years and rides it they might be going into an area that has been classified as active mining area and could get hurt.

    I think it would help if they went live mid day Friday so people could load them before leaving if need be. We all know there's no damn cell coverage in Saint Clair. :D @mslow

    Says the co-organizing jack wad himself. So blame him when something goes wrong!!

    Yes Sir easy/peasy ! There will be several "organized" rides or unorganized rides and just plain old places to Adventure off too!

    Thanks for the replies. Hope to make it, but it really will be a last minute decision.

    If there is indeed no cell coverage doesn't that make rever useless because we can't preload the file for offline unless the organizer posts the files BEFORE sunday so those of us on the road can get them loaded...but according to this, https://rever.co/price/ we would have to buy the premium rever for offline...is this the case?...if so major punt. We need gps and the mining folks need to cut the nonsense.

    Just ride and if somebody stops you then you’re probably off RAC property!

    Don't take us ball busters seriously -
    Glad your interested in coming out-
    You can use your gps anywere on the ride and you can get cell coverage for 95% time.
    The enduro course is well,marked and,the other three rides will have leaders , sweeps and many people who know the routes.
    Trust me you will be fine.

    I made them live yesterday afternoon.
    Maybe calling it a Toy Run is somehow being interpreted as a Dual Sport, but this is more of a gathering to raise toys for local kids and to provide them a better Christmas. The group rides are being offered to give people a feel for what the land offers, so the routes are short and diverse. Mainly so you can ride one or two of them, none of them, or maybe even all of them if you'd like.
    There's also a bunch of play areas that will keep most people busy for a few hours.
    Outside of that, if you have a gps on your bike, you can download the property borders and view them on it so you'll know where you are at all times.
    If you use your phone, you should be able to download the tiles for the area and use it offline with mobile networks turned off.
    If neither of those help, you can follow a group or explore on your own.
    With the amount of people that will be there, it'll be tough to get lost.
    See you Sunday!

    I’ll gladly lead a group around other areas after the led rides are complete. There’s some fun stuff on the other side of darkwater rd.

    Question

    Thanks.
