Shop Route Library

  • Updated

The Route Library is your central location to organize and share Shop Account routes to your audience. Add tags for organization and applying to embeds, and manage route level visibility all from a single page.

When you first set up your Shop Account, we will happily transfer over all of your existing routes from an established account or group so that all existing routes and URLs to the routes will remain intact. Send us an email to get that process started.

The Route Library

The Shop Account acts like a separate account, so you will have to sign into the club to plan/edit routes, add routes to the club, tag routes, create events, and create Collections.



The top of the menu will turn yellow to signify that you have signed into the Shop Account. Only an approved route manager will ever see this option.

Route Managers can click Sign into Organization account to start making any changes additions to the Route Library.

The top toolbar on the website will turn yellow to signify you are signed into the Shop Account.

If the toolbar is grey, then you are still signed in with your own account.

Click the logo in the upper right, then Sign Out while the toolbar is yellow to return to your personal account.


There are many options for sorting routes. Click on any of the header columns to sort. Click the column header again to reverse the sort order.

Copy Routes to your Shop Account Library

What good is a Shop Account if you don't have any routes to share with its members? Here are a couple of ways to add routes to your Route Library.

If you find a route on another account that you would like to add to your library, you can do so from your personal account or while logged into the Shop Account:
  1. Bring up any route that you want to add to your library.
  2. In the left side panel, click More > Copy to My Routes. You can optionally change name and permission on the following screen
  3. Select the organization you want to add the route to under the Account dropdown. You will only see this if signed into your personal account.
  4. Click Copy to my Routes to finish



Move Routes to the Shop Account Library

Approved route managers have the ability to work on a route from their personal account then save it to the Shop Account. When finished creating or editing a route, to save it to the Shop Account, follow these steps:

  • Click Save in the bottom left corner.
  • When the prompt for a route name and more details pops up, go to the drop down list for Account and select your Shop Account from the list.
  • Click Save one last time to finish.


Save Routes to Shop Account Events

Route managers are able to save routes to existing Shop Account events, or create a new event with this route save to the Shop Account, all while signed into their personal account. To save a route to an event in the Shop Account, follow these steps:

Tag Routes

This is a required piece of information when creating embeds for your website. 

From the Route Library

  1. Select the routes you wish to tag.
  2. Click set tags
  3. In the Route Tags field, type in the desired tag or click to show the list of available tags.
  4. After you have typed a tag, press enter to complete the tag. It will appear in a small box.
  5. Repeat these steps to add additional tags to the same route.
  6. Click the Add Tags button to finish adding the tag to the route or click Remove Tags to remove the tag from the route.


While Saving a Route

You can also add and edit tags on a route while saving the route.
After you have added tags, you can further sort your routes by clicking filters. This will allow you to sort by tags, minimum or maximum distance, minimum or maximum elevation, route name, and location. You can add multiple tags to further filter your routes and better organize large route libraries.
Here's a quick demo on adding tags:

Route Privacy

Routes in the library can have their own privacy settings. Only a route manager will have access to these options.
  • Public - Anyone including members and non-members can view these routes. Both members and non-members can take advantage of all the signature features for these routes.
  • Members - Only members of the Shop Account can see these routes and take advantage of the signature features. Non-members will not see these routes at all.
  • Managers - Only members with the "Route Manager" permission will see these routes. This setting is for routes that are considered a work-in-progress, or you don't yet wish to reveal to the members until a specific date or event.



Archive Routes

Routes can be archived from the route library. These routes will not be visible to Shop Account members for viewing on the web, or for downloading and navigating on the app. These routes can be added back into the route library for use by members. Only a route manager will have access to these options.
  1. Select the routes you want to archive by clicking the checkboxes adjacent to their names
  2. Click Archive at the bottom row beneath route table
  3. View your archived routes by clicking View Archived Routes in upper right
  4. Routes can be unarchived with these same steps from the View Archived Routes page


Change Route Location

Anyone with the ability to sign-in as the club account can change the starting location of a route. This is handy if you want to specify the neighborhood or landmark of the start of the ride rather than the default city.
  1. Click the selection box to one or more routes.
  2. Click the Set City button at the bottom of the list.

Route Locking

Account admins are able to lock routes to prevent any changes from being made until the routes are unlocked. Lock routes can not be edited or deleted until they are first unlocked and only admins have the ability to lock or unlock routes. In the route list and while viewing the route, you’ll see the lock icon prepended to the route name.


Locking Routes

  1. Check the boxes to select which routes to lock.
  2. Once selected, click Lock.
  3. Now that the routes are locked, no changes can be made without first unlocking the route.


Unlocking Routes
  1. Check the boxes to select which routes to unlock.
  2. Once selected click Unlock.
  3. Now the routes are unlocked and may be modified by a Route Manager.


If viewing a locked route, you’ll see the lock icon appended to the route name. Note that the option to Edit is not available, even while logged into the club as Route Manager.

Route Changelog

View the edit history of all of your individual routes, including date and route managers.

  1. Select Route Library
  2. Click on the i icon next to the corresponding route you want to view. If the route is locked, you will see a lock icon.


This will expand a pop up box listing the revision history for that specific route, in addition to the privacy setting and what Events and Tags are associated with that route, which you can edit.
When Route Managers are saving changes to a route, they have the option of leaving a Changelog note that describes what and why they made the changes.


This option does not appear when saving routes to a personal account.

Click More Options to reveal this text box.
