Free Yorkshire Dales App For Walkers And Cyclists

Visitors to the Yorkshire Dales National Park can use a new hi-tech service to help them enjoy the beautiful landscape. A special smartphone app – believed to be the first of its kind produced by a National Park Authority in the UK – has been created that is packed full of walking, cycling and mountain biking routes as well as information and facts and it’s completely free. The app has been paid for by Go Dales!, a project run by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) with funding from Sport England that is designed to inspire young people to get active in our protected landscapes. Available on iPhone, it is now live in the iTunes App Store and can also be downloaded from www.godales.org.uk/go-mobile. It includes points of interest, panoramic views to get you inspired from your sofa before you set out and some suggested walks and bike routes mapped on OS maps; there is a live GPS locator on Google maps so you can work out where you are. The app includes: *  15+ walk and cycle (mountain bike and road) routes plus maps *  Two MP3 audio walk trails *  360 degree panoramas *  Access information for people with limited mobility *  General ‘getting active’ information ranging from what to wear to what to do and how to find out more *  Links to clubs, outdoor centres and activity providers *  Information on geocaching *  Links to the YDNPA and Go Dales! websites Android, Blackberry and Symbian phone versions will be available soon and you can be notified when these are ready by emailing godales@yorkshiredales.org.uk with 'Yorkshire Dales App' in the message title.
