2019 Themis Itinerary plus Ride Files

Your Trip Itinerary

A hard copy of this itinerary will be given to you at the start of your trip.

Use the navigation buttons at the bottom of the itinerary to flip through the pages.

Your RIDE MAPS

Your itinerary describes each ride and has an elevation profile to help you choose your preferred option. You can explore your rides in more detail using the below map and profiles.

Since 2018, we have reduced our carbon footprint and replaced our hard copy maps with interactive maps using smartphones. You’ll need to supply your own compatible smart phone to view our prepared map files on your Android or iPhone device.

Our electronic maps are helpful if you need extra navigation assistance during your ride. The benefit is that your phone’s GPS device will help you find your location on the map relative to our ride route and you’ll also have a map of all of the surrounding streets, without using mobile data on your phone.

Ride maps will be helpful if you lose contact with the group that you are riding with. Rest assured, we do have the highest guide-to-guest ratio in the industry and our guides do their best to look after everyone during every ride.

Staff will be available at the beginning of your trip to assist you with any of the procedures and help you load the ride routes onto your smart phone.

Take your ride maps with you using the Ride with GPS phone app.

DOWNLOAD OFFLINE TRAVEL MAPS WITH RIDE FILES

Our guides have been using MAPS.ME for local maps on trips and they’ve found it invaluable during the trip.

It has two great features that you too may find useful during your trip with us and during your travels elsewhere!

  • Download a lightweight map set for the region you are in, without the need for an active mobile data connection. For all roads in France this takes only 25MB of storage space on your phone.
  • Quickly locate yourself (and share your location), using your GPS and the Share My Location feature.

PLEASE SEE EXAMPLE BELOW FROM SOUTH AUSTRALIA

MAPS.ME Instructions

  • Search for MAPS.ME app on your smart phone using the iTunes Store or Google Play Store.
  • Open any of the kmz files (within the zip file you can download below) using MAPS.ME and you will see the ride appear in your bookmark set. Clicking on any of the items in a bookmark set will highlight on your map.
Toggle the visibility of each ride route by accessing the bookmark set menu (the icon with 2 stars and 3 horizontal bars).
  • During the trip you can use the Main menu button to share your location with staff for them to easily locate you.
Download the compressed set of files below and open each contained file in MAPS.ME. They open as bookmarks and show you each ride route, along with start, finish and distance markers.
