CycleOps rolled out a bunch of updates to its Virtual Training web portal and desktop app. These changes start with the Activity Graph. CycleOps redesigned the activity graph from the ground up back in January and now you can analyze a number of metrics second by second by selecting it on the map or highlighting the section you want to analyze by highlighting the section you want on each metric.
The data shown on the right side of the charts below are automatically recalculated to reflect the data points of a selected section (i.e., Speed at 29.8 km/h in the example below). Data on the left side reflect analytics for the entire graph (ie., Max, Avg, and Min Speed).
Plus, Adobe Flash is not required to view the graphs anymore, which means these key data points are readily available on mobile devices.
If you manually make laps or splits during the ride (both indoor and outdoor), you´ll see these splits in the elevation profile. Statistics for each lap will be calculated automatically so you can compare your rides and check your progress.
