    Tour De Yorkshire Sportive.

    Is anyone else doing this?

    If so have you managed to download the GPX files? Whenever I try to all that happens is that a new page opens with what I assume is the actual program written on it, as opposed to giving me the option to actually download the route.
    I'd like to get this uploaded onto my bike computer for the day itself & to my Nav 5 so I can have a motorised spin round the route before the day so I know what to expect.

    This is the page I'm at, http://letour.yorkshire.com/maserati...ride/route#GPX

    clicking on the 'Download the GPX file' opens up this page:-

    Thanx in advance.

    Lot of variables here like operating system and browser but sounds like somehow you have set your browser to be the default program for open gpx files. See if there is a right click download option.

    Open the page and copy and paste all the text into a new file with a gpx extension. If your on windows then note pad will work great for this.

    Thanx. I'm afraid you've lost me. I know how to copy all the text but "into a new file with a gpx extension" lost me. I am on windows.

    At least I know it's the website, not me. When I save the file it saves as an XML document.


    Edit: The webpage with the program on won't allow me to copy. Right click does nothing, Control A highlights it all but Control C, Control V does nothing.

    Open the page

    Select all the text either with the mouse or ctrl a

    Copy all the text with ctrl c

    Open notepad and paste into it with ctrl v

    Save file as whatever.gpx overwriting the default txt extension

    Cheers, I've tried that but the text won't copy.

    Edit: I've opened the saved text version & copied that but I'm not being given the option to save it as a GPX file, only as various versions of text files.

    ok forget that as well, the copy and paste works fine but data isn't right. Contact the site and get them to fix it.

    Aye, who knows what the issue was but it's all good now. Certainly the long route looks right.
    Thanx again both for your input.
