    Went out this afternoon before heading to work to get some easier miles in. Wanted to keep my HR a little lower than my previous ride and I did but not as low as I wanted. Wind wasn't nearly as bad today. Saw one guy sitting in a Mustang with the airbag deployed. Car was smashed up against a tree off the side of the road. A bunch of people were stopped to help so I kept going. Other than that, an uneventful ride. Glad I wasn't in that spot when the guy ran off the road.

    Here it is.

    Nice. I'd love to see some pictures. Looks like a killer ride.
    This is my bicycle. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My bicycle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my bicycle is useless. Without my bicycle, I am useless. I must ride my bicycle true. I must ride faster than my enemy, who is trying to drop me. I must drop him before he drops me. I will.

    Did not take any photos on this ride. My prior attempt (which I ended up at 120km in the support car) however is here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...2&l=778bfd7060

    So when you look at other people's ride data, what are the first things you look at? For me, I look at distance, elevation gain, and avg speed and base whether I could hang with that person on a rough estimate of how that compares to my data. I can't be the only one looking at it and thinking the same thing...

    Yeah. This is such a great thread. Don't think I could even hang on UMD's wheel.... sniff...

    I start with the map, then I just scan down the page top to bottom.

    Honestly hanging on someone's wheel is more about technique than anything else. The connect data is neat and all, but I think the videos are more fun.

    UMD, did you make that video? I have seen the exact setup with the overlays but thought it was a proprietary setup some BF member setup. I am surprised you already have your cam up and running with the overlays too. Is it some software package that does this?

    those are some fun toys you've got there.
    pretty cool stuff.

    waiting for my edge 500 to arrive, then will post to this thread and you will all be in awe of the flatness of my rides.

    Wow, looks like you were almost dead there toward the beginning of the ride. Was that really correct? Your HR was near 30bpm?

    I admit to lacking originality and bough the same setup that SteelerHoo used for his videos. The software is called DashWare, you create the gauges and feed it the data and set up a sync point and that's pretty much all there is to it. I did create my own gauges instead of using his though.

    I have been training for over 10 years so my resting heart rate is about 25 bpm. That's why when I first start it's only at 30 bpm.

    No kidding. This is the second time this has happened. I think it's because my Garmin got crosswired, sort to speak, with some other rider or computer. Once I went clear for a few minutes, it fixed itself.

    When you say you create your own gauges you mean you use some sort of built-in wizard and pick shapes, fonts, etc? Or do you actually have to create them in some vector program or something and import it?

    They have a few building-block components that you can use to create them, such as arcs, animated arcs, gauge face, needle, and dynamic text. The dynamic text is pretty straight forward, you assign it an input from the data file and it updates the text with the value as it changes. All of the circular components have min and max angles, so for example the speed gauge goes from -225 degrees to 45 degrees. Then you set up the min and max values and it draws the tickmarks and the numbers of the gauge face. Create a needle with the same min/max angles and values, hook it up to the input, and it updates as the value changes as well. Sections like the cadence ring and HR graph were more difficult because there is no build in arching gradient, so it is made up of many different segmented values that are each colored/shaded slightly differently.

    I'm pretty disappointed in myself. Went out with the intention of riding for 2 hours. At about 55 minutes the group I was in split in 2, with the half I was in giving up. I tried to close the gap but it was too large and too windy and I didn't make it. I probably could've but I just gave up. Then the wind broke my spirit riding solo and wen't home. Not happy with myself at all. I should've waited for the group to come back around, I was finding the pace pretty easy which means my fitness is coming up, the last time I did that ride I was dropped in about 15 minutes. Weather.com was reporting the wind at 21 mph sustained with stronger gusts. You know it's bad when it doesn't say if it's cloudy, sunny, or partly cloudy, it just said WINDY in capital letters.
