Title: Routes Information
Post by: krokonoster on June 20, 2017, 02:37:02 pm
Just started reading today about routes.
Never used my GPS for that purpose since I got the bike, so will download some and put them on the GPS and see how that work.

Since I never did it, perhaps my question are useless:

Wouldn't it be a good idea to have routes listed with things like "Distance", "Duration", "Difficulty Level", etc?  Or is some of that already in the file and shown when one upload it  to your GPS (I got whatever comes on a 2017 GSA.. Garmin something)

ps: Mods, feel free to remove or move this post, not sure where to ask

The problem with grading routes is skill levels and bike capabilities differ. What may be a 2/5 to you that takes 5 minutes to complete might be completely impossible for someone else. A 2/5 route on my KTM would be a 3.5/5 at least on my BMW for instance. It's too broad and subjective to grade
