Today, I rode the first section of the Race Across Oregon. I went from Hood River, over Mt. Hood, and down to the first Time Station, and I never left my house. How did I do it? with my Computrainer. My Computrainer has been a valuable tool during my winter training, and now it becoming a tool to prepare me for the RAAM.
The Bike Route Toaster. This program is easy to use, and can export the course as GPX file (the kind used by Garmin GPS systems). I was able to then convert the GPX files into a file that can be used by the Computrainer 3d program. Map My Ride is also able to export GPX files, but I was not able to import its format. it also appeared not to have elevation data.
After importing all the data. I was ready to ride. Now if I could just beat the Metal Man to the top of the climb.
