After you’ve completed a ride, there is a lot of data to make sense of — speed, distance, elevation, and more. Learn about splits, quick laps, where to find your data, and ways to display the data.

What’s a ride? A ride (or run, hike, etc.) is an activity that you did on a particular day/time. Whenever you upload data recorded from a GPS unit or the mobile app, you’re creating a ride on our site.

There are several ways to create a ride on Ride with GPS:

The Metrics Tab

Every ride will have a metrics tab in the right side panel. Click on it to view more details about your ride.

This is where you will find all the details about your ride including duration, distance, elevation gain, max grade, and much more.

The Elevation Profile

The Elevation Profile shows much more than just elevation. This is where you will see all available sensor data including heart rate, power, cadence, and temperature.

After making a selection in the elevation profile, the metrics will be highlighted in gray to reflect the selection.
