Re: Fwd: [RC] Old Pueblo day 2 - rides2far

owyheeendurancerides.html), I have found the GPS miles (or google  
earth hand-drawn track-logs) are about 10%-15% off, always on the  
short side of things.

My training partner and I both use GPS. She is consistently getting over
1/2 mile more than I do on a 7 mile course ridden together that has lots
of turns...not so much elevation changes. Mine cuts corners and jumps
across the loops.

At FITS Saturday I just threw it in Josie's pack and knew it might not
get good reception there and may not be accurate...but the first "25 mile
loop" GPS'd at 24.6 so I thought that was great, Lynda's probably would
have had it dead on 25. Unfortunately, I forgot to stop the GPS at the
end of the ride. We were in a hurry to head home and Bill packed the
saddle in the back of a trunk (ever hauled to a ride in an Accord?). Got
home and pulled it out to see how far she'd ridden and it said "475
miles". Worked fine through the trunk lid...and I was worried about a
canvas bag.
