Elevation profiles of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route.
Note about ascent/descent numbers
Changes in elevation between the source GPS points only count toward ascent or descent if the grade between the points is greater than 1%.
Originally, the app counted every single change in elevation toward the total ascent or descent. Riders have pointed out this overestimates the amount of climbing and descending. Especially considering GPS records elevation to fractions of an inch.
App developed by Dave Gieger, who rode NoBo in 2010. I'm happy to chat about the route and answer questions if you're heading out there for the first time. Email me at gieger.david<AT>gmail.com.
1) % Grade Filtering: choose the % grade at which changes in elevation count toward ascent/descent.
