Hexplo, a tool for creating cycling routes

Bicycle travel is in vogue and some are talking about it as the future of the holiday. Emmanuel Brault, the founder of Hexplo, is passionate about cycling tourism and wanted to create a tool that democratizes this activity. This web application, Hexplo, facilitates green tourism by describing the route and the places of interest along the way. Is this the Waze of the future for cycling?

Hexplo, an app for cycling routes

Emmanuel Brault’s platform, Hexploallows cycling tourists to plan their routes. Before you go on a bike ride, you can now find out which stretches take place on the network of bike routes, bike paths, departmental or country roads. The path does not quite suit you? That interactive card allows you to change the route as you wish, add intermediate points.

This tool for creating routes reveals you all the details on the course: the distance, travel time, terrain type, altitude profile and the cumulative elevation gain. Now you can cycle by knowing all the variables. This allows you to equip yourself properly and manage your efforts.

How does the Hexplo app work?

This application for long distance cycling offers more basic features for free. To unlock all the tools, you must subscribe (without obligation) to 30 euros a year. A very small monthly sum, which amounts to 2.50 euros per month. Before taking the plunge, the user benefits from one 7 day free trial.

To get the most out of Hexplo, just choose a place of departure, a destination and then edit the route by adding waypoints. Since the app caters to all profiles of bike tourists, you can determine the degree of difficulty. To do this, you can choose how many kilometers you want to drive per day, or in how many stages you want to drive the route.

To dig everything up travel information (paved road, bike path, gravel, path, etc.), Hexplo uses data and technology from Google Maps. It gives you a better overview of the bike routes you can take.
