Official Route for 'Ride for Rwanda' Event for 2017 & 2016 (50 Mile) Course is exactly the same for 2017, as 2016.

GeoLadders again supports 'Uploading' directly from a Garmin device to Post activities, but using the IE browser only (Microsoft Interent Explorer). Plug in your Garmin to your computer and give it a try, just click 'Upload from GPS' button above this text. Or, if uploading a new route, click the red 'Upload Activity' button top upper right.

Also, 'Downloading' routes directly to a Garmin device to follow a route on the GPS, or to race a Virtual Partner (yourself or others) on the GPS, is again supported (IE browser only). Notice the 'Virtual Partner' tab after hitting 'Download' button above this text.

Go to, open the existing route you want to post to, select 'Post GPX to this route' (on left), then click the 'Browse' button (middle of page), find the GPX in your 'Downloads' directory. Double click, save. That's it. Your route appears on and in your dashboard.

Woke up to major wind. Temps warm but the wind was brutal till 10 am or so. Everywhere seemed to be I was riding into a head-wind. Tough. Just under 1200 riders but $144,000 raised today. Lots of stream crossings. They rerouted the end to avoid riding up to the SCE tower, which was fine by me as getting warm and tired by then. My GPS showed 46 miles exactly and only 4,150 feet of elevation gain. Go figure. Fun raffle event even though I didn't win anything as usual. Big shout-out to all the volunteers to help pull off a successful 11th Annual Rwanda Ride.
