City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Rentenanstalt Tram Stop

crambled, Hashbrown and me are planning to go on a short and medium level road bike ride.

The plans are not fix yet, it depends on the participants and their wishes.

We could do one of these 3 rides

1. Züri - Albis Pass - Züri, short but hilly some 25Km including the pass which is easy at the beginning but steep at the end.

2. Züri - Hirzel-Züri, a bit longer and allways going uphill but more easy and relaxed than the Albis Pass

3. Züri - Rapperswil -Züri, a flat ride around the lake, easy but longish.

Depending on what do you want to do we can chose, scrambled and I are up for the AlbisPass or any other route you could propose.
RSVP'd Yes: 2 (2 members and No guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 1 (1 members and No guests)
  • Matt - If I come, I'll be on time - don't wait for me. I prefer hills - so either Albis Pass or Hirzel.
RSVP'd No: 2
  • Begga - Sounds fun, but I'll be stuffing myself out with British cheese
  • gdaddy - Change of RSVP. Got commandeered by the wifey. :(
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: Road bike ride

Not around this weekend, but Salsa, I'd be interested in the app you are using. What is it called?

it's cyclemeter runs on the iPhone, it tracks your rides and also gives you comparisons with previous rides, so you can see how are you improving on a defined route.

Re: Road bike ride

is the big chibli from aug 21st to aug 23rd, roads can be closed or are full of pieces of empty bottles , or people cross the street without looking at the traffic

Re: Road bike ride

Hello,

It's off topic for what you're talking about, but I got this cyclemeter software for my iPhone and find it pretty good.

but how do you transfer the graphs to your PC or web site whereever?

Thanks

Re: Road bike ride

I make a screen capture and then copy it to the pc, it would be great to transfer the data files and probably is possible, but I haven't looked into it yet.

Re: Road bike ride

thanks, I asked their support as well and got this feedback. they answer within about 10 minutes, quite impressive..

The app currently does not offer a way to export graphs in a similar way that the app uploads maps. For maps the app generates and uploads KML files and lets Google Maps offer a web presence. In a future release we do hope to offer similar functionality for graphs. In the meanwhile here are some options we suggest to customers.

- Export runs, rides and walks as GPX files and use third party web sites to graph the data.
- Export runs, rides or walks as CSV files and use a spreadsheet program to graph the data.
- Take a screenshot of the graphs on your iPhone and email the photo to yourself.

Re: Road bike ride

Hello people,

Is there anything planned for the next Sunday?
I generally go riding on Sundays and would like to get some company. Could have joined you guys but did not see the post in time. I did a Zurich-Baden out and back in the afternoon. It is not a very interesting route as most of the times you are riding on the pavements and stopping at traffic signals.

I have done some rides towards Albis and Hirzel (Shilburg side) through Adliswil. Once did a round about and crossed Albis from the other side.

Looking forward to my last two weekends in Zurich.

Cheers
Pankaj
