Smartphone GPS navigation option

There is no substitute for spreading a great mountain bike trails map out on your kitchen table to figure out your next adventure.  Adding the ability to navigate with a smartphone is great on the ride to pinpoint your current location when mountain biking.  However, batteries go dead, reception is not always dependable so a physical map is important when out exploring.  It's just hard to plan a ride on your smartphone or even a computer.  There are free apps available but they typically don't have much detail.  These complete maps are also available with all the same information at the printed version to use on a smartphone.

About Big Loop Maps and the author

Mountain biking recommendations and opinions on trail difficulty vary greatly depending on who you ask.   A typical complaint about mountain bike trails posted on apps is they are not consistent.  One person posting could be a pro racer while another created a route from their camp spot and then cut out half way through.  Consistency is a primary focus on these maps.  After following the first route you can gauge your riding ability and fitness against the recommendations and adjust future rides accordingly. Get to know about the author Shawn Gregory "Maverick" who has traveled the US and the world racing and exploring on his mountain bike.  Inspired to create a resource for other adventurers he started Big Loop Maps to help fellow cyclists find epic rides.
