Up to 6 riders can be played back at one time, great for comparing performance, seeing how long a break was, or how quick a flat tire got fixed. When a ride is uploaded it is immediately viewable in the Player (example).

Where does the route content come from?

User uploads and our internal auto-creation tools. When a user uploads a GPS track to Geoladders, content such as Googlemap overlays, 3D graphs, gps Player, Garmin Course file, gpx file & route stats are automatically generated 'on-the-fly'. Anyone can create a route if they have a GPS, optional content such as geo-tagged pictures, route description and comments are added by the user. Some users go 'all out' and produce fantastically detailed routes, including slide-show walk-thrus, picture galleries and printed directions.

Yes, you can upload (post) a GPX file of your activity to GeoLadders.com using Safari. Click the 'Upload Activity' button upper right corner and follow the steps. You can also download by going to any route and clicking the 'Download GPX' button below the route description.
