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).

10/14/19 - Just a deliberate slow, quiet spin this morning. I have ridden through this area so many times, it is easy to take for granted the beauty with which God has surrounded us. I needed a reality check this morning; after hundreds of rides through here, it is indeed still beautiful, and I am so thankful.

10/13/19 - Afternoon ride. Today's ride was designed to descent Pipeline Trail after visiting Sierra Peak. First time descending Pipeline. The upper section of Pipeline has 5 or 6 very steep sections between 40 and 50% grade and about 150 feet long. Because recent bulldozing those steep sections were even more challenging since the dirt was soft, loose and covered with small rocks. After conquering those sections the rest was a very pleasant descent.

08/28/19 - Sad day at Whiting. Came across a man down and others performing CPR at base of Cattle Pond. Took turns with another guy giving CPR while the downed man's wife gave mouth to mouth. Helicopters had to lower paramedics down. About 25 minutes of CPR before they arrived. Had to winch up the patient in a basket since heli's couldn't land. Rode home in the dark - glad I wasn't mountain lion dinner. UPDATE: The downed rider passed away upon arrival at the hospital. Prayers to his wife and family.

08/13/19 - Another warm day out racing by the lake. Had a guy crash in front of me about a quarter mile in, my avoidance led to my own crash and a burp. Not bad, got going again and on the second lap reeled in about a half dozen from my class. Felt pretty good about that, just took a lot of hard efforts. Mucho fun.
10th Anniversary for OTH. They've had 120 races and I've done 101.

07/25/19 - Late afternoon ride. It started out hot 90 plus. The climb up Silverado and Maple had a lot of welcome shade. Just as the pavement switches to dirt was a rattlesnake. I ended up using my bug net for the dirt climb. The Harding gate was wide open at the top (someone broke the fire lock). A good size bobcat was running down the trail just in front of me on Harding. A slow leek on my Honzo’s rear tire was causing me problems. I ended up back at my van in the dark. All worked out. The whole ride I did not see another rider or hiker.

07/19/19 - Temperature in the low 70s at the start. Later in the 60s. The Sun was merciless though. I haven't ridden in Aliso in many years. Maybe 6 yeas. I started by climbing Meadows. I stopped to catch my breath about 4 times. In the pass i used to climb Meadows non stop. Now I am 6 years older and 20 pounds heavier. I was able to climb Cholla non stop. That made me feel great.
07/12/19 - Great hike in perfect weather with my son, bro in law and his friend. Stuck on cables for 15 minutes waiting while someone at the top was wigging out not moving. Glorious views and fantastic beauty. Spent an hour and a half at top. Million dollar view for lunch! Knees did fine on descent, thanks to training and hiking poles. Water falls were pumping from all the rain this winter. Awesome!

06/05/19 - Waited for today's weather to repeat this ride. Good temps with fresh breeze blowing. After Morton tower the single track trail (Santa Ana River Trail) was covered with so much grass and brush that the narrow path was difficult to follow.
