About GPS tracking

If you're taking part in RideLondon, it’s important that you set up GPS tracking on the app to increase the accuracy of your position on the route. This makes it really easy for loved ones who are tracking you to see where you are, check you’re OK, cheer you on and be at the finish in time to congratulate you!

To set up GPS tracking, simply go to the My GPS section of the app and type in your unique GPS ID and last name emailed to you. Your unique GPS ID was sent to you on Wednesday 18 May in an email titled ‘Download the free RideLondon App’.

Why use GPS tracking?

While your rider number will contain a tracking chip, this chip will only record your split times at a limited number of points along the route – the first point being 25 miles into your ride! So, to help those who are tracking you to get the clearest, most consistent picture of your ride, we highly recommend you make the most of GPS tracking.
