Mapmy Ride Bagging

Postby Teisetrotter » Tue Dec 18, 2012 16:22 pm

Yes .......... I have bagged (without making the course up myself) my first course. This is all a lot easier than Strava I admit, because there are a lot less people using Mapmyride (ermmmmmm hence my use of it).

However there is a hill section near me where the highest ave speed for 1.2m is 25mph. The next one is 17mph. I am wondering if somebody switched their mobile gps on whilst driving .............. anyone heard of that on Strava?

I'm KOM on one MMR uphill here in Cardiff because in fact I've been riding a flat road that runs parallel and below the real climb.
The GPS isn't that accurate on occasions.

IT,s the same on strava,some of the kom times seem unbelievable but generally you just have to accept there are lots of fast fit riders out there.
At the end of the day just work on your own times and efforts and maybe one day you will get the the unatainable(at present)times.

I agree. I am doing repeat runs to see improvements I make on climbs and distances. And this was a little milestone of willy waving.
