I tried to upload some tracks today but I'm getting "internal server issue" notifications. Server load too high currently?

Can you send the track that you can't upload to [email protected] or directly on Facebook? I will check wha's wrong.

Okay, thank you. It was my first time posting on there so I wasn't sure if it was me.

In case you missed article about our website in last MEMRider issue, I repost it here:

ADV Tracks: Riders Coming Together To Build a GPX Base

Riding is ridiculous fun. But knowing where to ride isn’t always that easy: while there are lots of destination suggestions, ride reports and detailed travelers’ blogs out there, what if you just want to download a GPS file and go? 

‘This question has been on my mind for quite some time now. All those adventure riding blogs and forums out there are great for inspiration. But very often, I’d read a post or a discussion about a particular ADV ride and wonder, how cool would it be if I could just download a track without having to research the maps first? Simply find a destination or a route that I wanted to ride, and get the GPX file of that exact same ride without fuss. And that’s exactly why ADV Tracks was born’, - says Gediminas Cicinskas, co-founder of ADV Tracks

‘We talked the idea over with my brother, and decided to make it even better: create an online GPX base which would also serve as a social media platform for adventure riders. That way, you could either simply share GPX files or also upload photos, videos and ride reports. In addition to that, members of the ADV Tracks platform can chat with one another on instant messenger, keep up to date with the newest tracks, and follow each other’s journeys. It’s like ADV Rider meets Facebook… only better!’.

How does it work? The registration (also available via Facebook) takes less than forty seconds. Once the user is registered, he or she then creates a profile and can start browsing and downloading GPS files of both on and off - road tracks from anywhere in the world. 

From Bhutan to DR Congo

According to Gediminas, ADV Tracks is growing exponentially. ’The whole project is completely community-driven. As the number of our membership grows, so does the database of available GPX tracks. We now store GPX tracks from all over the world including such adventure riding destinations as Bolivia, Bhutan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, and so on. You name it – we’ve got it!’.

ADV Tracks resembles an adventurous mix of Instagram and Facebook for riders: it’s easy to use, members get instant access to other members’ profiles and GPX tracks and can enjoy the ‘like’ and ‘follow’ functions and instant messenger. There are different privacy settings: your ride report, photos and GPX tracks can be public, private, or shared private (only members with a special link can view it). The updated ‘search’ function now allows members to find specific GPX tracks using keywords, countries, cities, and so on in the search criteria.

Click and go

‘ADV Tracks is created by riders, for riders. There are no fees to register or download the GPX tracks.With our new, update mobile version, members can now comfortably browse using their mobile devices, too.Because we aim to make GPX sharing as fun and as easy as possible, we’ve also included such member profile functions as the ability to include and promote their Facebook, Instagram, and other social media profiles, - says Gediminas.

ADV Tracks is all about the global adventure riding community. ‘We aim to provide an easy, instant way to download GPX tracks of the most amazing riding destinations in the world and share the best rides with everyone!’

Not sure why it did that.....just double checked my gpx file on my garmin and it's right. Guess it was lost in translation. Go ahead and delete that one and I'll upload the right one. Sorry about that

The tracks look right to me when I view them. We zig-zagged a good bit to stay on dirt.

I only uploaded the first days track since day 2 we rode some questionable areas.

We published small update of ADVTracks. First we now have FAQ section, where you can find answer for some questions. And second, now you can change units from kilometers to miles! I think it's very important for members from United States.

I added the Trans Pennsylvania Adventure Trail files that were given to me and a connector from the Maryland/Delaware boarder that I created. Both are dirt and back road routes.

When I have some more time I will create a route from the Trans Eastern Trail that connects with the TPAT via as much dirt as possible. Hopefully we'll be able to connect the entire east coast via dirt roads.
