My goal for this month has been to work more on my climbing which brings me to a question. Just how is elevation gain calculated? I have ridden the same route three days this week and the elevation gain on strava has went down every day. Started at 597 ft, 534 ft, and today 498 ft. The only solution I can figure is my fat ass must be flatting the hills out by riding over them. At this rate in a few years West Virginia will be as flat as Kansas and bigger than Texas. I suspect the problem is the precision, or lack there of, that my phone measures everything with, because the grade of the hills is never the same from day to day. Heck, the grade isn't even the same going up as it is going down on the same ride. I guess I'm going to have to get an actual GPS for my bike. Garmin seems to be the only real option right? When I started riding I had no idea that a significant amount of my weight loss would be from my wallet.
