In the parking lot of a shopping mall in Chamblee



This is my first expedition using my own Notify program at xkcd.nathanwoodruff.com/Notify.aspx I had updated my program to be able to send out a .txc file instead of a .gpx file. When I ride my bicycle to work, I don't carry my Garmin eTrex instead I have my Garmin 705 bicycle computer and that uses a more current course/route file. I got the email notificating this morning that a Geohash point was less than 5 miles a way and included the .tcx file. Using my phone, I copied the file straight to the Garmin 705 and looked at it in the bicycle computer to see if it actually worked. I had not tested it before today.

The route showed up on the bicycle map with turn by turn directions. PERFECT! I was riding to my first real distance Geohash point. I have ridden to one before but it was only 3 miles and some from my house. So... On with the track log.

Here is my ride to work this morning... https://connect.garmin.com/activity/832987586

My ride after work to the Geohash spot... https://connect.garmin.com/activity/833584827

My ride from the Geohash spot to home... https://connect.garmin.com/activity/833584901

All in all, 37.9 miles or 61 kilometers ridden today, and not a drop of gasoline.
