Organize your routes and rides into Collections for easy access, reference and sharing. Ride with GPS Collections allow users to organize routes according to location, region, country, season, distance, discipline or any desired theme. 

Ride with GPS uses Collections as a convenient way to organize, group, access, and share rides and routes according to any theme or preference. Sort and share multi-day trip itineraries, your region's best gravel rides, or group rides with multiple course options. Collections can be created, managed, edited and shared by individual, club, and organization accounts alike, providing a practical way to present and share routes with friends, family, group ride participants, and your larger community.
