You can now ‘walk’ a cross-coun­try course by tak­ing to the air, says event rider turned en­tre­pre­neur, Sam Lewis. Sam, who events at grassroots level, has re­cently launched her own start-up com­pany called FlyMyCourse, which uses the power of drones to cre­ate aerial course walks. Ac­ces­si­ble on­line and via your smart­phone, the idea be­hind the ini­tia­tive is to give rid­ers more time to get the feel of a course days be­fore the event. It’s hoped that FlyMyCourse will help to im­prove rider safety, too. “A con­ven­tional course walk is still a must and while it’s ideal to walk it more than once, time re­stric­tions of­ten make this im­pos­si­ble de­spite the ben­e­fits in terms of safety, rider con­fi­dence and com­pet­i­tive­ness,” says Sam. “Many grassroots rid­ers in par­tic­u­lar strug­gle to take in ev­ery de­tail of the course they’re about to ride, so we vir­tu­ally ride it for them — us­ing drones and high-def­i­ni­tion video to cre­ate a fly-through video of a course. “Rid­ers can then re­view it at their leisure in the pre­ced­ing days, or hours, be­fore an event.” Find out more de­tails, in­clud­ing how it can help you, at flymycourse.co.uk.
