    I think we could come up with a reasonably good "gnarly" score that gives weights to different factors. There is probably a relatively easy way to factor in headwind too, though if we do this by day...

    Thanks for the link. I went ahead and ordered one of the Endura Luminite jackets to try that out. Since it looks like it's kinda "club cut" I sized down to medium. "Large" in their athletic fit is...

    - We always fetch the first (primary) photo for any ride. If the photo is only associated with the ride later (e.g. when you edit it and add the photo), this should get picked up within the hour.

    If the steel Lemond is anything like the ti Lemond Victoire I used to own, then I would agree that the frame was made to be smooth. The guy I sold the Lemond to came back from a test ride saying...

    Yes -- thanks vvill for running that to ground; I had forgotten which one it was, but it's obviously in the code/html.

    Yeah, the Garmins take a looong time to adjust. Some people put them in the freezer to help accelerate the adjustment. Mine is steady since it sits in the shed on the bike all night. But both my...

    Correct, none of this works for manual rides. In fact, manual rides are excluded from many of the non-points leaderboards. Basically I got tired of people forgetting to enter a duration for their...

    Just to clarify here, temperatures reported by Strava are from your Garmin, not from any weather datasource. (Unless they've changed something.) -- And these numbers almost certainly won't match up...

    I'm guessing that it'll be ok if (when) things are frozen hard next couple mornings (?) -- I was thinking of doing some CCT + Lake Fairfax riding Friday morning.

    Hopefully someone can provide a...

    Tires (pressure, size, tpi) make a huge difference. But I'm sure the frame properties are relevant too. Incidentally, try lowering the pressure in your 25mm tires; that should make things smoother....

    Are you implying that you'd built up enough fat reserves over 4 months of not riding for clothing to serve a strictly cosmetic purpose in sub-freezing temps? ;-)

    The ride this AM was very nice,...

    Yeah, that's fair. I was thinking we'd also track wind speed/direction and ride trajectory ... but that is definitely getting more complicated. (And fetching windspeeds at various points along the...

    Perhaps you were looking at this while the data was being reprocessed? Your coldest ride shows on the chart as 15.8F.

    Indeed the ride you linked had an avg temperature of 18.14 and average...

    I will get back to you on that. The criteria is based on ride start location and weather observations over the duration of the ride, but I am not sure what chart you are referring to, so I will check...

    Just to follow up, the rides are all using lat/lon-based weather now. So this is as good as it's gonna get unless we can find a more accurate/better-coverage API for weather data.

    FWIW, I am redoing all weather data using lat/lon, so wunderground should use the closest weather station and not snap rides to regional authorities. The data won't be perfect, of course, but it...

    Bilsko hits the nail on the head as far as limitations of our temperature system.
