    I've been meaning to ride Hurricane Ridge; you start with your back tire in the salt water at Port Angeles, and over the course of 17 miles you ascend 5,240 feet. Then it's a screaming 45 minute...

    Probably the watch recorded more time because it doesn't have auto-pause?

    I don't think Sports Tracks is free.

    A lot of people love Strava. You upload the files that come out of your GPS to it, and it tells you how many other cyclists ride the same roads as you.

    You can get a mount to hold your watch on the handlebars when you ride, so it's easier to see your speed (and other things).

    I don't know much about Movescount. I know you can have software on...

    I've never used a Magellan bike computer but I've had their top tier hiking GPS unit (Explorist 710) for years and it's disappointing enough that I wouldn't buy another product of theirs. My...

    I have a nice winter piece I got on summer clearance. When it got cold enough, it just wasn't for me. Ridiculously warm, but heavy.

    Also some "best of the best" cottage industry stuff.

    Power failure

    I took my bike out this weekend and did a long ride through some farm country below Mt Rainier. 38 minutes into the ride, power and cadence went blank on both my Garmins. I tried searching for the...

    I don't understand why bus (public transit) drivers are allowed to run red lights with impunity in every city I've lived in. They do it as a matter of routine. If a light just turned red during...

    I bought a Garmin Fenix 3 GPS watch a few months ago. It's sort of like an Apple Watch except the battery can last a month and a half, and the GPS works if you leave your phone behind. :)

    Your heart rate is a pretty good proxy for how hard you're working. A lot of roadies (who've invested in power meters, mostly) will disagree, but it's true. People say things like "caffeine raises...

    The steepest pavement in Seattle is 26 %, according to S-DOT. It's a kick in the ass at one block. Especially since you wind up going up a few blocks at 20+ % to get to it.

    Hi, Chuck Smith;

    Which sensors are "best in market?"

    You absolutely cannot calculate power reliably from speed, cadence, and heart rate. There are just too many variables. You'll have enough...

    Well I'd try a new battery first. I know with HRMs, when the battery starts to die, the transmitter just kind of stops working well. Could be the same thing with the SC.
