FAQ

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Ride Altitude Gain Data Collection

You will need an altimeter cyclometer or a GPS with barometric altimeter and about 5 min. of time each ride.   We will be averaging all the data on each ride so recording data on the same ride two or more times is helpful!   The more data we collect, the more accurate the results!   Record the total Altitude Gain & any comments.   When you get at least ten rides recorded, give or send them to me.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
