Why do not the new rides posted show the amount of views even if the number is small? Instead they just say (new route) even after being viewed. Thanks

A new help file is available, 'How to copy a gpx file from Garmin Connect to GeoLadders'. ...find it upper right corner, on the 'Upload Activity' menu, as 'HOW TO'.

We have updated our server today and are now SSL 'secure site, https:' on all pages. We have removed Garmin Communicator support, which only worked via http:, and has been phased out by Garmin and most browsers. (Garmin Communicator was an api GeoLadders used enabling users to upload/download direct to a Garmin gps).

02/16/20 - Phone said it was 45 degrees out so I dressed for it. Pretty warm in the sun - had to peel going up Vulture. (or, at least that was my "reason" for stopping...) Great to be back on the purple bike - what a difference.
01/17/20 - Great ride with Jr!
Glad to see that Geoladders is up and running again. I have met some great people on this site, Jr. for example. We met in 2006 from a scheduled ride that at the time of the ride I hated and cursed Jr., Hal was there too and I cursed him too. lol. The scheduled ride was up to Sierra peak, my 1st time and I was on a heavy enduro bike. It was painful, but over the years I have wizened up and endured a lot over the years. Now I look foreword to those painful rides where the climbing is funner then the descending.
Not Really :) Happy 2020 Bike friends. Lets get some scheduled rides going..
and look out #1 I'm coming for you.
Mountain Bike Ride 01:22:56 8.2 mph 7:21 pace HR avg 91 / max 111
01/16/20 - no rso. StartTime=1632. [25470.TK9; 90000. total; 0. to tie Abigail]. [25470.TK9; 90000. total; 5000. to tie Betty]. 171. This ride completed the virtual circumnavigation of the equators of the Earth, Moon, Pluto, Mercury, Mars, Venus and Abigail, and is 0 miles into the equator of a fake geomass named Betty (5000mi circumference to yield 95000 total miles). The 1st ride on Abigail was on 2017dec20. It took longer to finish Abigail than expected because my wife broke her wrist on 2018May26 and I was taking care of her for 4 months 24/7 before she could do more things on her own. She still has tingling and numbness in several of her fingers and has to be careful using a sharp knife because of her lack of feeling what she is doing. Also I lost interest in bike riding until 2019apr28. Further history can be seen in a post on 2017dec19 when I finished Venus and 2014aug05 when I finished Mars. Also note 'other comments'. My balance is still deteriorating.

01/12/20 - no rso. StartTime=1451. [15682.FX9; 89913. total; 87. to tie Abigail]. 171. About 3 dozen walkers, mostly with dogs on leashes (1 dog was not on a leash). About 2 dozen bikers (2 families each with mom & dad & 3 kids; 1 family of 4 with 2 kids). 3 joggers (1 female with a long coat and long pants; 1 male with shorts, a long sleeve shirt and a knit cap with the temp around 50F; 1 male with tights on his legs and a hoodie). Lots of Mallards on Watson Lake. Avoided all the snow and ice except for 3 each about 50ft sections near the mile high summit (about 1.5 miles S of the Sundog Trail head).
11/29/19, 06:13 PM Started seeing snow on the ground at 4.5 miles from the gate, 3500 ft. elev. 50% coverage. 1 mile later it was a full 3 inch blanket of snow. Overnight it dropped to 2500 feet. 2 inches of water in the crossings.

11/17/19 - Daylight started, night time finished. Very hot at lower altitude but nicely fresh at the top. More than 10 years since I rode Harding Truck Trail last time, and even more time since I descended upper Joplin Trail. Upper Joplin has been cleaned recently from brush. The rocks and ruts keep the same. Very tough and steep descent. I am happy I did not fall considering that the chances of crashing are very high. I would say 80%.
11/05/19, 12:59 PM Most of the trails have been brushed. Bovinian was a little tight with the encroaching brush as was Raptor/Faultline, but I have really wide bars (820mm). Everything else was pretty clear. Bobcat Ridge was recently "mowed" and all the clippings just left on the road.

10/31/19 - Used to ride out this way a long time ago when we would come out to visit the in-laws. Actually took my daughter on some of these trails 15 years ago and a lot has changed since then - paved parking w/bathrooms, new trails with signage. Wasn't planning on this ride (actually had mapped out Landmine Loop through Blue Diamond) but the parking area mapped on Trailforks no longer exists. Kinda glad that I kept going and landed here. Met a few peeps in the parking lot that pointed me to some nice, flowy desert single track. Rode something like this: Trail out of parking lot to Viagra, Mustang Loop to Cactus Slalom to "T" at Landmine Loop, turned around and climbed "Lawnmower" to "Rubber Ducky" which kinda brought me back to the parking lot.
10/16/19 - Didn't have a whole lot of time this morning but I've been wanting to go back out to Harding since it has been years since I've been there. Like most of the trails around here, it could use some rain. Still the best fireroad trail around; even the shortened version. Anyone know what the left hand drop at .4 miles leads to? Doesn't appear very appealing from the aerial look so I've never really checked it out.
