Planning, six days out — 4 Comments

  1. When I used to ride my bike a lot, I used an app called My Tracks. Apple probably has a ton of options for great apps.

  2. Change ALL the things!

    Hope you have an uneventful week and an excellent ride. 🙂

    (I've never found a GPS app that doesn't get super-confused by trees/hills and/or otherwise fail on a regular basis.)

  3. *Endomondo has always worked well for me. You can put your phone in airplane mode and then manually toggle your GPS on. Pull up endomondo and let it load GPS, and off you go! I have had PHENOMENAL luck with this. I have an android (samsung galaxy S4) though. I know Apple folks have a harder time with it. Karen (theeashke.blogspot) loves EquiTracks which seems to only be an Apple app currently.

  4. Sounds like things are coming along like all endurance related events: slightly crazy until the actual event!

    As for a tracking GPS app, I love using Strava. It has a great website interface where I can look at super detailed things (like a small section of trail and how fast we went on it) but the app (for iPhone) has all the good stuff, like map, average speed, etc. I've used it for a very slow 50 and it didn't eat all my battery, so that's a plus. It is for bikes, so I do make sure to make my rides "private" as to mess up their statistics for rides.
