Map it on www.bikeroutetoaster.com, download as track or route, upload to your GPS using GPSBabel

will i be able to map a course in less than the 24 hours it looks as though it will take me on the other system?

I plot mine as a GPX on bikehike and then just export it to the Bryton 50. I don't tend to find the BrytonBridge mapping site as user friendly as bikehike, bikeroutetoaster etc. Once you are used to the system you should be able to plot a 300km course in the space of 10/15 mins.

it took me much much longer than that to do the 25k's worth on the bryton site,but i did struggle once i got to that point as the road did not seem to match up to measurements on the route sheet :)

I found this - not sure whether it's the correct route for this year, though.

excellent and very impressive,i am not sure it is correct,i will double check with the route sheet later but even if some of it wrong it may give me a greater understanding of where i went wrong,many thanks for the heads up  :)
