Just some thoughts and experiences from a mountain bike endurance racer who likes to ride and race his single speed mountain bike a long long way on remote single track in the mountains and desert.

Shawns ride maps & gps files

Below are some links to Shawn's Garmin Connect page with 

  maps and gps file downloads

You can download and use this FREE software to bisect these routes and also piece them together with other routes and upload it on your GPS if you don’t want to do the full length rides or alternate them in some way.  Great software for planning a ride!  Once you see how useful it is you may want to upgrade to the professional version for a nominal fee.
