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).

12/14/19 - Pomona Ugly Sweater 5k with a change of course. It was a bit hillier than the previous version. Tried to run at my expected half marathon pace for tomorrow. It's gonna hurt - haven't trained nearly enough. We'll see how badly I blow up.

12/13/19 - Nice ride with full sun (unlike previous time on this loop). Literally millions of Lady bugs on Maple Springs just before the end of the pavement. The first ride on the Tallboy since my OTB incident. I think it is just about perfect after working the bugs out of the drive train and hub.
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.

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.
