PacPop GPS Routes on Garmin Connect

(Direct link to the 2010 Pacific Populaire routes)

There's been an interesting development this year. Alex Pope noticed that Pacific Populaire riders have been uploaded their GPS ride details to Garmin Connect - All three distances are represented.

It takes a while to load at certain points, so you have to be a little patient. You'll see a map of the Riley Park start/finish area with seven red pointers. On the panel on the left click on the route you want to take a look at, then click "View Details". (You can also just click the pointers.) You'll see a route map, profile, ride stats and sometimes rider comments. Now look at the top right corner of the window. Click "Player". This is the fun part. When you press play you watch all the recorded data continuously adjust as the little red pointer moves around the map. Notice that you can adjust the speed !
