VeloDCity: a Washington Area Bicycling Group Message Board › Tracking your rides and performance

Tracking your rides and performance

I had a brief discussion with a couple of cyclist today about cell phone APPS and websites used to track your rides. I mentioned one my favorites, Strava, which they had never heard of. So, I'm sharing it here with everyone now. Strava is a site built for cyclist where you can visualize your activity, compete and climb leaderboards, analyze your performance and more. It's basically free to use, but if you want to add additional analytical aspects to your profile, you will need to pay a monthly or yearly fee to do so. The fact of being able to compete virtually against other people on your favorite trails or loops is what I like the most and I think you will also.

Here is the website.­

Also, here is a link to my stats from the Hain's Point Loop D loop ride today­

Thanks Demetrius,

Looking at the elevation chart of the ride, I can no longer use the term 'pancake flat' to describe Hains Point.

Anoyne know an android app that you can upload (or create) a route to your phone and get turn-by-turn directions, like the (dedicated) GPS units can do? I've downloaded Cue Sheet and BikeRoute (no longer being developed), waiting on handle bar mount for my phone to try them out? Cue sheet works with a site called where you can apparently either upload or draw a route and then access it from the android app and follow it with phone mounted on the handlebars, we'll see how it works.
