    Go and have a great ride and record it on your Garmin or Wahoo and upload it to Strava or save the GPX file.

    After completing your journey, connect to Strava or upload your GPX file to our custom map print creator.

Create a Custom Map Print For Someone Else

  • Get The Files

    To create a custom map print for a friend or family member, you will need to get their GPX files. A GPX file contains the route data, speed, and time etc.
    If they have a Strava account you can follow this blog post and download the files. If they don't have their rides on Strava you will need to find or recreate the activity. Follow this blog post on how to do that.
  • Upload Your Files

    Once you have downloaded the GPX file, upload the file to our custom map print creator. If you are looking to upload multiple routes into one custom map print, you can keep adding GPXs into the tool. These will be in the order of upload so you may have to reorder them if you require chronological order.
  • Customise The Print

    We have options for different colours, sizes and text - including adding the name of the cyclist, distance, time, elevation and date of the ride, making this the perfect gift. 
  • Send for Printing

    When your custom map print is finished, you can review and confirm you are happy with the final result.

What files do I need to make a map?

Our map design tool can link to your Strava account and get rides straight from there... or you can upload GPX files to create your map.
You can get GPX files from various devices such as Garmin and Garmin Connect, Komoot, etc. If you need some help get in touch! 

How do I create a map for someone else?

Most cyclists have an account with Strava and this is the best place to get their ride GPX files.

If you don't have direct access to their Strava account then there is a way to find their ride and get the files to create a map.  Read our blog post on that.

What is a GPX file?

A GPX file is simply a text file with geographic information such as waypoints, tracks, and routes saved in it.
Many cyclists record their rides via their phones, or devices like a Garmin or Wahoo. 9 times out of 10 those devices upload the activity to Strava or other websites where cyclists can review how fast, or slow, they are. From these websites we tend to be able to download a 'GPX' file. 

Can I get some help with the map designer?

We have a short video here that shows you the tool.

I also offer a 'done for you' service where I do the work for you.  Downloading the files and making the map to your specification. Find out about that here.

Can I save it for later or send to a friend?

If you copy and paste the URL you can come back to your design later.  If you share the link with a friend, be aware that they can make changes to the map too!

Can I create a print for a multi-day ride?

Yes you can! Just keep adding rides via the Strava interface or upload them all as GPXs. The tool will put them in the order you upload them (so you may need to re-order them if you want the profiles to be correctly arranged.

I can't find my ride on Strava

The Strava website only allows us to see so many rides from their database. If you can't find the ride(s) you are looking for the best thing to do is upload the GPX from the ride. If you need some help getting the file see earlier answers.

A repeat order for a map print for other riders that had taken part in a 500 mile trip was fulfilled quickly and well, just like the original order and previous orders that I have made.
