    GPS distance and elevation descent/gain on your commute in pictures

    hi everyone just kind of curious to see if anyone uses GPS and what distances everyone is riding and if you know what your elevation descents and gains are and if you have a screen shot of it

    No. Somehow I always manage to get to work without any navigational problems. I have been known to get lost on the way from my locker to the shop, though.

    I don't have GPS, but here are my two favorite round trip commute routes via Gmaps Pedometer.

    Elevation Measurements Via GPS Are Wildly Inaccurate

    A typical consumer model is probably +/- 30m

    Very true - it amazes me how much variation I see in measured elevation change between different rides over the same route. I run all of my routes through MotionBased which does an elevation correction - still not perfect but it significantly reduces the variability between the measurements.

    I like the idea of this thread, but unfortunately (or fortunately) my ride doesn't exactly have an exciting profile (or distance...)

    Motionbased

    I love my GPS! I feel so naked without it. Motionbased.com is a great place to track your history.

    Seriously, 37 miles? How many days a month do you do this commute and is that each way or round trip?

    this is my round trip commute that i make 3 out of the 4 work days a week
    lots of fun and a great way to build some muscle carrying (25additonal pounds of work stuff clothes, shoes, food, etc...) but when i drop the 25pounds off wow i feel so quick! and also when i drive i feel like its ten times faster!
