TdT Route 2016


These ridewithgps.com links listed below are for viewing purposes only as the GPX Track and TCX Course files contain too many track points (>10,000). If the routes are loaded onto a GPS, they will be incomplete, ie the route will be truncated. Instead download the modified GPX and/or TCX files listed further below:

Randonneurs USA (RUSA) Planner (2016)
Link to ACP 1200km/90hour Planner
RUSA Planner Results differ by a small number of minutes due to rounding of entered distances.

EXCEL Ride Planner (2016)
An Excel Ride Planner is available for download (a modified version of the PBP 2011 planner by 'tim-moon-feldman'). To predict your arrival times at Controls, input expected stage speed to the next Control, input expected time off bike between Controls, and input expected Layover time at each Control. Instructions are provided in the Excel Planner download. Modifications of the planner could even be made on-the-fly with an appropriate phone app. The Excel file is unlocked, modify with caution.

Below are two screenshots (select an image to enlarge) as an example from the Excel ride planner and corresponding chart of a planned scenario by a rider. Note: the yellow, orange and red time warnings. Even though the rider can complete 1200km within 90 hours, they failed to arrive at the Derwent Bridge Control at or before 9.47am, and had in fact arrived 9.56am, only 9 minutes late! :(
