Avenue Verte GPX route

Postby Martin123 » 29 Jan 2015, 8:13pm

Hi All,

I'm helping to guide a charity ride this summer from London to Paris following the Avenue Verte. I've got a copy of the Sustrans Official Guide and I'm surprised that I can't find any reference to a definitive GPX route guide in the publication. Does anyone know of a GPX route which exactly mirrors the Sustrans Guide?

Cheers

Martin

The definitive one is the one you make up at home at leisure from the maps in the booklet. That is what I had to do.

Hi Many Bikes,
Yup that's what I'll do. It's a good way to familiarise with the route anyhow. The charity ride will have around 50 riders and about 6 guides, a few of whom may have GPS and the rest the Sustrans guide so it would be good to be following the same route.

Cheers

Martin

I was surprised to find that in sussex the roads were overhung with trees for such long stretches. The gps couldn't keep up and I'd have to pause for a fix. Different route I'm afraid.

There is a gpx route for the English and French sections on Cycle.Travel. I haven't checked whether it matches the Sustrans route but as all the other routes are from the Sustrans range I would suspect that it is. Here is a link to the website:

Does anyone have an opinion or a comment as to the differences between the Hirsch http://www.donaldhirsch.com/dieppeparis.html London - Paris route and the one on cycle.travel one?
