REVER users share some of their favorite, fantasy and future planned rides.
In the midst of 2020’s Corona-virus lockdown, we’ve been encouraging users to plan future rides. Rides that they intend to ride once restrictions lift, and/or their ultimate bucket-list rides. REVER’s ride planner is a great way to get out and “explore” within the confines of your own home.
If you haven’t planned rides on our planner, you’re missing out. The advantage of REVER’s ride planner is that you can build completely customized rides that you can then navigate from your smartphone, or export to other devices. Unlike other mapping programs, REVER allows you to plan almost anywhere on the map, even over places where no roads exist. Don’t want to ride on highways, no problem. Want to ride across goat trails that aren’t even considered roads, no worries. So without much further ado, here are some submissions from the REVER community of riders. Enjoy.
