DnvrFox has some stats - no kidding - Check for yourself

Well, most of you know that I detest tracking anything such as mileage, etc.

But, I now have this new Android phone with the "Tracks" app, and I have been trying it a bit.

So, here are today's stats - or as much as I will share

Total Distance - 19.43 miles - about a .5 mile difference from my bike computer - well, OK, that is close enough for guvt work.

Lowest elevation - 5621 ft
Highest elevation - 6218 ft
Top speed - 29.72 mph
Slowest speed - 0 mph
Max grade - well, it says 12.3%, but just a while ago, it was at 8.4%, so********** The 8.4 must be the better figure
Elevation gain 1,466 feet

And that is it folks. Likely the first and last time in the past few years that I will post such unnecessary factoids.
Oh, I forgot - smiles per mile - about 100.

Did you start and end at the same place? If so you also must have coasted 1,466 ft.

Now I'm wondering if the 12.3% was coasting and 8.4% climbing up the other side.

Hmm!! Darn stats!!

I think the 1466 is the total gain - that is up (counted) then down (not counted) then up (counted) - etc., so, even with no absolute elevation change, one could have 100's of feet of elevation gain.

Here is the altitude graph. However, even though it looks out and back, the upper 1/2 is a loop.

BTW, this is my first bicycling graph ever, made by importing the csv data into excel, making a graph, taking a screen shot, cropping it, saving it as a jpg file and posting here. Whew!!

One of the things I know is that for some folks stats bring almost as many smiles as the miles. Now, will the question is, will Denver get hooked?

Nope. I enjoyed seeing that particular route graphed, as it is what, around here, I call my "training route." It is the closest I can get to a semi-decent climb, and as one can see in the graph, it is 8 miles of continuous "up" followed by about the same mileage "down" with almost 600 feet of elevation change. Remember, I live on the flat plains east of the mountains.

But, I think I am satisfied, as it is a regular route. I may graph one more route the next time I take it, which would be 34 miles south anad back and into Castlewood Canyon State Park. Actually, I will likely eventually graph the other three of my "regular" rides, just for my own reference.

Any way you look at it, I'm not up to doing that.

Thanks Denvr, I just installed it. I didn't know this was available. It is called MyTracks, not Tracks. Best of all, it is free.

I've been using My Tracks for awhile now. Seems to work pretty well and you can send the data to Google maps to look at there, if you are like me and don't like trying to see it on the dinky phone.

And how would one do that?

Download to the SD card as what type of file? There are 4 choices

Then hook the computer to the phone, or send directly or what?

Then how to get it to google maps?

Etc.**********?

It's an option. List the tracks, then press and hold down on the preferred track. Select "Send to Google"

Today's ride - You have to change the "visualize" to "map." I don't know how to show the map on the BFN page. The available embedded link doesn't seem to do anything when posted as an embedded link on BFN**********

Still learning.

I don't know if others not signed into google can view or not??

It made me sign in, so I guess if you don't have a gmail account, you won't be able to view these things. I have to confess that I'd just done this "Send" thing once, so I don't know a lot about it. But anyway, I was able to view your route on the map by clicking "Visualize" and then "Map" as per your instructions, so that works.

I don't know how you'd show the image without the link though.
