Is there a way of uploading a gpx file into cycle.travel?

I've had a look round the site but not found any obvious way of doing so.

There isn’t yet but (whisper it) I’ve been working on this and I’m hopeful it should be available in the next couple of weeks.

Hi,

I've been trying to do this as well. Is there any update on this becoming possible?

Thanks.

It's now up and running - experimentally. Click 'My 🚲' , then 'Journeys', then 'Upload'. You can then upload a GPX and it'll convert it into a cycle.travel journey.

There's a few provisos which are listed on that page, but have a go and let me know how you get on!

I think the ability to upload files is going to be really useful - especially getting a route and then finding nearby accommodation. So I have had a go. On one file (a 100k route) it worked fine.

On the second it would only work if I reduced the number of trackpoints from 1000 to 500....not sure what effect this has on the route then produced. For reference it is this route. http://www.gpsies.com/map.do?fileId=kfsruszylmvmlrdq

Not sure whether this is a particularly large file but the ability to import a multiday file could be a benefit.

I want to try this but my Garmin routes don't seem to be accepted because they are not GPX files. Anyone know if I can convert them easily to GPX from either .Tcx/.Fit?

Wanted to upload a GPX file, but when I click on the "My" tab on my laptop (Windows 10 and Chrome) there is no Journeys tab. Here's a screenshot. Any suggestions ?

However, on my Android mobile (using Chrome), I can see the Journeys tab (along with Travelogue, Shortlist and Profile tab), so can transfer my GPX files to my mobile and load them from there, but would be easier from my laptop. 

Can I also add that I have only just stumbled onto the fact that, as mentioned in another post, that you can add a c.t icon and plan on your mobile, and it is EXCELLENT !!!

Do you have access to your saved routes through the Map screen. See my screenshot, they are on the LHS.

Ah, I see you wanted to upload, so I have not answered your actual question.

Thanks for looking Graham.

I've just setup Microsoft Edge browser, and that works fine on my laptop.

And I've just got Chrome working now ... I had a customised font setting (using Times New Roman), revert back to Chrome's standard font and it all works again.

Computers !!!!!!!!!

New to cycle.travel and happy to find all these great features including the GPX upload. I suppose the only thing is that it rebuilds a route using paved/unpaved roads. Would it be possible to force the original track and still have cues (with reduced info of course) ? Thanks !
