Preride Elevation Gain Estimate

From obm1000
This is the elevation profile ploted from the Garmin tcx files created during the prereide. All four riders had the Garmin Edge 705 bike gps. The Garmin elevation gain is within 10-percent of the Bikely estimate, the Bikely estimate was 33,600 while the Garmin estimate is 36,446. The route sheet will be updated with the Garmin elevation gain data and will have summit information added where it is missing. You will be able to determine how much farther you have to reach the summit an how many more feet of climbing dancing left to do. Tango anyone?
