Déjà vu? Finding out if you’ve been there before

Posted by & filed under Activities, Data, Maps, Ride Details.

Segments are a great way to see how many times you’ve covered certain sections of road/track, but what if there are no segments set up for the stretch you are interested in? Say hello to the Activity Overlaps tab! OK, probably not the most sexy of names, but what it lacks in title it makes up for in functionality – select any section of any activity and it will search through all your activities and provide a list and map of any that overlap. Neat!

3D Strava/Garmin Connect/Ride With GPS Courses, Activities, Routes and Segments

Posted by & filed under Activities, Data, Ride Details, Routes, Segment Details.

Back in July I had my first experience with bookmarklets when playing with Marc Durdin’s excellent bit of code that provides his funky elevation profiles for Activities and Segments right there, in amongst Strava’s own page contents. I might have been a bit naive but I just didn’t realise that this thing was so easy to do, so time for a quick play and see what I could come up with. First off I wanted to get an interactive 3D view of the new Strava Routes, the other thing that sprung to mind was to see if I could swap out the Google Maps view for the more detailed (at least here in the UK) Open Street/Cycle Maps which I’ll go into in my next blog post.

Two very neat additions been added to the Segment Details and Ride Details maps: the option to go full screen and the option to overlay photos from Panoramio. Now you’re maps can go HUGE while you review your rides and check out everyone else’s pictures to see what you missed along the route, saves having to stop and take any yourself doesn’t it!

Velo Flow Your Club Runs

Posted by & filed under Ride Details, Velo Flow.

Velo Flow is a great way to visualise your rides but it really comes into its own when used to view group rides, be they club runs, sportives or races. Whichever the type of ride, the steps to go through to get the best Velo Flow of your ride are the same and very easy.

Ride Details, the Missing Link

Posted by & filed under Charts, Data, Ride Details.

For a long time the main missing element on VeloViewer has been a ride details page. Well, not any more. View each of your rides’ stats, interactive map, elevation charts (including the gradient histogram – distance travelled at each gradient) and lists of all segments covered.
