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!
