I used to send a Google MyMaps link that is quite different from a ‘Standard’ Google Map link.

There is a maximum of ten (10) locations for a Google Map route, however you can include in-between point by dragging the route. Is this OK for online submission?

BunBurner Silver link: https://goo.gl/maps/eyjvZFqTE5L2 (with additional points)
SaddleSore 1000-CA link: https://goo.gl/maps/uUmPerNFgT12 (no additional points required)

As the rules state, "This map is to assist the person verifying the routes and is meant to give a good overall picture of your ride." As such, it doesn't need to be detailed. So any map that meets the above requirement will do. Please refer to Step 5 on the Saddlesore 1000 rules page for a more complete description of what we are looking for.

Alex,

You could add as many waypoints as you wish in a separate layer - and drag your intermediate point to them. This way you are able to increase the number of recogniseable waypoints in one My-Maps route layer.

Alternatively, you can tailor as many as 10 different route layers, where J waypoint of one route is the A waypoint of the next one.

Amnon, you are correct. IBA certification explained that the traditional google maps works better and faster for the current procedure in place. I will keep the My Maps for my own records.
Thanks, Alex in PHXAZ.
