We’ve teamed up with route-planning app Komoot, to give you the chance to win an exclusive adventure to the Scottish Highlands. The app, which is designed to make finding your next hike, ride or mountain bike route really easy, is on the lookout for new ‘Pioneers’ in the UK.
Pioneers are people who are particularly knowledgeable about their local area, and choose to share their expertise by uploading ‘highlights’ to the app.
"Highlights - a picturesque waterfall on a hiking trail, or a hidden section of singletrack for example - are one of Komoot’s unique features."
These highlights - a picturesque waterfall on a hiking trail, a challenging climb on a road cycling route or a hidden section of singletrack for example - are one of Komoot’s unique features, providing users with suggestions they may wish to include in their own itineraries. The idea is that the Komoot community ends up with a shared resource and everyone can benefit from local expertise.
To encourage people to contribute and earn Pioneer status, Komoot will be taking the four individuals who contribute the most inspiring content between March 31st and July 31st 2018 to the Scottish Highlands for a four-day trip in September.
Komoot is already the number one Outdoor app in Germany where it’s frequently topped the download charts in the Apple app store. However it’s only launched fairly recently in the UK so, for the moment at least, there are fewer highlights listed.
If you know any routes less ridden (or trails less trodden) around your local area and would be happy to share your knowledge, this is a chance to make a real difference to your local outdoor scene. And if you win yourself an amazing trip to Scotland in the process? Well, that’s the least you deserve!
