Find your way by GPS
GPS (Global Positioning System) is a system using satellites to very accurately show your location. If you have a smart phone it can be very cheap and easy to get started.
All the rides with directions in both our guides New Forest are available through the Viewranger app. Within the app you can download the same 1:25,000 OS map base as our printed guides to make it very easy to see where you are. There is a small charge to download both the map tiles and each route (you first purchase credits on the Viewranger website and each download uses some of your credit).
Unfortunately at present the Viewranger website and app does not permit the download of GPX files for use in other apps, programs or devices but Viewranger hope to enable this by Spring 2017.

Find your way with a simple bike computer
Our guides include the Total and Stage distances for each direction of a ride - it helps you know when you've reached the next direction and where you are on the map. For more information refer to our bike computer advice sheet.
