How can I tell which way round the round trip is?

Hopefully I'm just being dense here - I'm pretty new to SatNav navigation, and especially my Rider 550....
On my laptop I open MyDrive and 'plan a thrill' (there must be a less cheesy term for this) to a destination, and make it a round trip. It shows the route as a thick blue line with (obviously) a different route in each direction. But how can I tell whether the route has planned to be clockwise or anticlockwise? I would have expected some sort of arrow to designate this but I can't see one? Surely TomTom have done something to show this without having to open the full directions and working it out from there?

    There is no easy way to see the direction of your route it is just a blue line.
    You can use a starting point in a junction nearby. When jou start this track the Rider will create a route to this track. Because you know the direction to this junction you will not have the problem starting the track in the wrong direction.

    @VikramK can you add direction arrows in the blue route line to the wish list? A bit like Kurviger an OsmAnd have implemented this.
    This way it is easear to start a route and to see you will also drive the same road in the opposite direction later (two arrows in opposite direction)
