BBT June 1st

Today we were apparently going on a short flat 50 mile ride as a final preparation for our trip to Ventoux next week. The flat bit was true but we ended up doing 85 miles, which I don't describe as "short".

A really nice route though along some new lanes and some lanes we don't often frequent.

I'm still trying to find a good site for uploading my ride GPS data to. mapmyride.com seems to have issues now displaying ride data for long rides to solaris hosts and so far my requests for help have fallen on deaf ears. So I'm now experimenting with http://www.gpsvisualizer.com which appears to work and also allows me to host the data here. However it lacks some of the features of mapmyride.com, distance markers & simple elevation so I'm still looking for a better option.

Short fast geeky ride to Windsor

Today being mother's day we only went for a short ride to Windsor. This being the first outing of my new GPS so I can now bore show you with the full ride map.

The ride was short and windy which did at least mean I was able float along at 30mph as we left Windsor all the way to Old Windsor.

As the uber geek on the ride today I also grabbed some video but I won't inflict that on you as well.

Garmin edge205

Guess who got a GPS for his bike for his birthday? I could not resist mapping the journey to my daughter's school this morning.

So far I have managed to use gpsbabel on the Sun Ray to down load a track from it, although the same does not work on a non sun ray Solaris USB port, something I am investigating.
