Richard Ellis Memorial 100 Calendar Event 2021

This page is for downloading alternative versions of the GPS files for this, Tom Deakins' calendar event, starting from Churchend, Great Dunmow, on Saturday 2 October 2021 at 09.00.  If you want information about the ride itself, visit AUK or yacf.

NOTE — there is a significant change to the return route this year!

REALLY QUITE IMPORTANT — This is an out-and-back ride, so you MUST make sure you use the route sheet to confirm you are on the correct leg!

The GPS Files

IMPORTANT — make sure you understand which version of the following GPS files are most suitable for your device.

  • Garmin Edge devices — new 500, new 700, 800/810/820, 1000, 1030 — use TCX; 10,000 points should be okay
  • The RideWithGPS IQ App also allows direct download from the pinned track to the latest Garmin Edge units with mobile connection
  • Older Garmin Edge devices — you're in a murky area in that TCX should work, but you may get a more reliable result from GPX; 10,000 points should be okay
  • Wahoo devices — TCX 10k, or "pin" the RideWithGPS route
  • Older Garmin devices — GPX and either 250-point or 500-point depending on which device.

Make sure you test these files out on your device before you start!

The full-route files are provided as a single TCX or GPX each.  However, the rest of the GPS routes, where the route is split into multiple GPS files, are provided as a ZIP file for each format — you require all of the files in the ZIP file!

The routes are provided as follows:

  • a single route for the whole 107km — FULL;
  • a set of two halves — To Brunch and BackSTG;

Each part starts and ends at a control.

The routes will appear as REM1_… on your device.

There are additional notes in the organiser's notes and routesheet, including cautions and alternative routes. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the route and any reported hazards before you start, especially as none of this information is included in the GPS files!  Not least of which, there's an info-control in Great Yeldham on the first stage — don't forget to bring a pencil!

This is now where it gets complicated — there are a LOT of options here, sorted by how split-up the route is, how many points/dots in each part, and whether it's TCX or GPX.

IMPORTANT — The Richard Ellis Memorial 100 is predominantly an out-and-back route that criss-crosses itself. It is your responsibility to make sure you ride the correct "leg" of the route if using these "full-route" GPX/TCX files!!  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
