Biking! Statistics!


View Arlington Triangle in a larger map

Statistics are here.

Elevation Profile
I used my GPS while biking finally, and used it to create a Google Map and record all kinds of information about a ride around the Arlington Triangle. I also used GPS Visualizer to create the nifty profile view.
So I'm clearly not very fast out there; I averaged about 15 mph even disregarding stops for crossings. My friend Chris averaged 18.3 mph while doing the 112 mile bike portion of Ironman Louisville this past weekend. Humbling. Still, extremely neat to have the data - statistics help you quantify just how much fun you're having.

How is that a triangle?

It has three trails, the 4 Mile Run, the Custis, and the Mount Vernon. There are only three intersections you need to turn at, so it feels like a triangle when you ride it.

Dude, our friend Kirk averaged 21.8 mph in the 112 miles of his Ironman race... humbling for me too ;)

THE MIND IS NOT A VESSEL TO BE FILLED BUT A FIRE TO BE KINDLED
