Does a short segment mess up the GPS tracking?

They're often a bit screwy, yes. A poor lock at the start or end can lead to some 30/40/500mph averages

Just uploaded my rides onto Veloviewer, must say I'm impressed with the info it gives you. There were a few surprises in there - segments I didn't know I was well placed on - especially busy ones in RP like these:
http://app.strava.com/segments/1742382
http://app.strava.com/segments/676222
and looking good on some commute CS7 segments too
http://app.strava.com/segments/1545476
http://app.strava.com/segments/860800

Oh, and if anyone sees me on CS7 between Wimbledon and London Bridge I'm riding a black Giant TCR2 with Black Guards - say hello, it would be nice to put some faces to names.

Got to agree i'm never bothered about downhill segments. Guess mainly because they are actually quite dangerous in built up areas! :shock:

Fair enough, my point was that veloviewer shows you segments you might normally miss (and RP is hardly built up, is it?)
the lap leader board for RP? Overall about 390 for the cafe lap with 18.20.

Why do the RP segments keep getting flagged? It's p'ing me off now.

Strava is down.... Not happy just when I put a lot of effort uphill. Still don't think that it will be enough.

But your trace puts you no higher than 33mph despite a 35 mph average. I smell fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiish!

Smart record? That would be a no. It's a bit weird with the average speed I agree. Smart phone was a second slower so maybe that's more accurate? My view is the lord giveth, the lord taketh away - short segments like that always a bit inconsistent with timings, I've been on the wrong end enough times!

Nailed a couple of KOM, seen an opportunity of good lights and no traffic at Canary Wharf ramp and one yesterday uphill on Telegraph hill. Happy autumn season begins....
