Re: [RC] Newer GPSs and accuracy - Barbara McCrary

It has always been my understanding that a 4.5 mile error was allowed. For example, a ride could be 45.5 miles and be considered a 50 mile ride. 45 miles or less and it could not be considered a 50. I think measurement has to be 1/2 mile over the nearest increment of 5 to be considered the next highest mileage. The one exception is on an LD ride, and it has to be a minimum of 25.
That's the way I remember it from my days as a sanctioning director for the W region.

Someone correct me here if I'm wrong but I think AERC rules allow a 50 mile ride to have a 5 mile error. So, assuming my 2% curve and slope adjustment are okay, then a ride that gps'ed at 44.1 miles could still be considered a 50 miler (and the riders will be much happier).
