After uploading a ride from your Garmin device, or saving a ride with our mobile app (for iPhone and Android) you can add details about the ride.

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:

Edit the ride name and description

While viewing your ride, tell your story or give more details in the Description field. Give a ride report, weather conditions, or point out special details of a planned route.

If you haven’t given your activity a name, click on the date in bold
