This is something I’d been wanting to do for ages and I’ve even surprised myself with how well they’ve turned out! The majority of elevation profiles you see around the cycling world look like they were drawn in the late 1990′s so it was time to bring them up to date and make the most of the latest technologies to allow you to interact with them.
On every VeloViewer segment page you will now see a “3D Profile” tab which will open up your very own interactive view of any Strava segment. Just click (or touch) and drag the image to see around and over the profile. Neat!
As with all the elevation based info from Strava, if the segment has bad data (i.e. not from a barometric GPS device) then the profile will probably look weird! I’ve done what I can to smooth it out but if it still look wonky then have a look to see if there is a duplicate segment that has better data.
Here’s some examples of some great roller-coaster segments. Post a comment below linking to the coolest profiles you come across.
