Link Route References

  • Updated

Use your route description to let readers know what to expect on your route. Inform them about services, hazards, and point out features such as scenery, good food, or recommended camping spots using route reference tools.

 


The Point Of Interest (POI) tool is used to link to existing POI that you placed on your route – select the text you want to link to a POI, and click the POI tool icon at the top of the editor. This will bring up your route map, and you can click on the POI you wish to link. If you want to add POIs to your route, just open up the standard route page in your personal account and follow these steps. Fill in as much information as you can for each of your POIs, and add photos, which will show up on the Ambassador route page.

 


The Point tool is used to identify specific spots along the route, such as summits, turns, hazards, or other places you would like your riders to notice – select the text you want to link to a point on your route map, and click the Point tool icon at the top of the editor. This will bring up your route map and you can click any point along your route to link it.

 


The Selection tool is used to identify a portion of the route, such as an ascent, descent, change in surface type, scenic view, dangerous conditions, or any other section you want to highlight – select the text you want to link to a section of your route map, and click the Section tool icon at the top of the editor. This will bring up your route map and you can use the elevation profile to select a section of your route to link it. Click “ref. selection” in the elevation profile to use the section you have selected.

 


The Photo tool is used to show a linked photograph; use it when you mention scenery in your description, to highlight amazing views, or to call out specific visual highlights of your route – select the text you want to link to one of your route photos and click the Photo tool. This will bring up a box with all the photos associated with your route. Click the photo you want, and it will be automatically linked.

 

Use the Ambassador route guidelines page for reference when creating your routes.
