Noob question on reading Elevation graph
I have a question about the elevation graph from my Garmin 305.
Is the elevation gain (1,448 ft) the sum of all the climbing I did during the ride? Can someone explain this.
Also, whats elevation loss?
Thanks in advance.
Elevation gain is the sum of all positive elevation change. Elevation loss is the sum of all negative elevation change. On a loop, gain=loss, though due to inaccuracy in measuring devices, that doesn't always show.
