Yeah, I know this is just a commercial for a rather expensive GPS that’s big enough to let you check your Facebook status on but I can’t get over how well it’s done. I used the Garmin 800 on my tour and it was extremely helpful. Not so much for the GPS, but for the elevation readouts and virtual riding partner. Every morning, I’d set the pace at 10mph and try to maintain that average.
Now, on my road bike here in Austin, I’ve been using it to do the same. Not that I’m training for stage races but I like to see progress in my riding. This is coming across as a review for a product that’s way too expensive to buy unless you’ve got a way to get it wholesale but I have enjoyed mine. When paired with the heart rate, cadence and speed monitors, it’s the perfect way to stay on top of your riding.
