A route helper is someone who helps us locate the best routes in their area. They will ride, run, hike etc. those routes and give us the GPS data so we can add it to Chasing Your Trail. Route helpers also will confirm existing routes on Chasing Your Trail. They make sure that not only is the route awesome, but also that all the alerts are correct, fire in a timely manner, and ensure the route isn't missing any needed alerts.
For example, let's say you live in an area that currently doesn't have any (or very few) Chasing Your Trail routes. You being familiar with the trails in your area, can map out what you feel are the best routes and provide us with the GPS data. Or, we may have routes in your area already, but we may need you to help confirm that those routes are still current, awesome, and that the app works flawlessly on those routes.
Without your help there is simply no way we can ever find every single great route out there! If you know of any great routes in your local area, please let us know! Simply send us the GPS data from your activity HERE.
Testing out existing routes
We constantly need help making sure all the Chasing Your Trail routes are up to date and 100% accurate. Whenever you ride a route, and report back that it's either 100% perfect, or could use some help is vitual! If you ever find a problem with a route, you can report it via the website HERE, or you can report it via the app.
