The maps look different recently…

Yes, we’ve changed the mapping system. We’ve used GoogleMaps for a few years but it’s no longer free to use. To keep costs down for the club we’ve changed over to OpenStreetMap. We’re still experimenting with it’s many features, but one of the nice ones is the ability to display routes, like John’s one below.
The route is based on the GPX file which John sent in. You can download the GPX file and load onto your own device if you wish.
