Could you possibly download the routes on WDMBC group Garmin site?

I am not an administrator on the Clubs Garmin Connect site and even so I don’t think yon can simply import GPX files into the Garmin Connect ‘Routes’. Basecamp is much better for viewing GPX files.
Not everyone who enters will have a Garmin device, some use mobile phones, Memory Map etc… so having them on the Garmin Connect site is not the most useful means of distribution.
You now have the GPX files for both routes and that is really what most people expect to receive doing a Sportive, the GPX file.
Getting the route onto the Garmin is easy. You can simply add the GPX route, the File, to the ‘new files’ folder on the Garmin directly once attached to the PC. The process could not be more straightforward.
Garmin > new files (copy and paste GPX file here) and safely eject the Garmin device and you are ready to go.

Not very intuitive…have to admit but managed to do that.

Once you have located the Garmin and the GPX file on the PC it is 2 clicks of the mouse and copy paste!
You’ve done well 😉DarrenParticipantFebruary 14, 2017 at 10:20 pmPost count: 699
These are googles instructions:
1.Connect the Garmin to the computer with a USB cable. Check that you can “see” the device, plus its memory card (if there’s one installed). …
2.Copy your GPX file into the NewFiles folder.DarrenParticipantFebruary 15, 2017 at 6:51 pmPost count: 699chrisKeymasterFebruary 15, 2017 at 7:10 pmPost count: 6865
Gt stuff guys and girls, still a few club entrants expected so get those in please.
RE what time do people need to be there aiming to open the HQ at 7.30 with registration and catering opening at 7:50 so 7.30 would be great will need at least 2 people for car parking and 2 people for signing on and another 2 for refreshments.
Also need a couple f people who can arrive about 9.30/10.00 and resource the HQ and to look after the catering and write down the finishing times when people get back, hopefully some one riding can relieve them when they are back.
get in touch and let me know what role you would like/can do
