Over the years, Singletracks had added a number of features to help mountain bikers track and share their rides, and now we’re tying many of these features together with Tracker. Tracker allows you to connect the GPS services you use to track your rides and automatically imports your ride data into Singletracks. We’re officially launching today with support for Strava, but look for other GPS service support coming later this year.
The Singletracks Trail Challenge is going strong, and members can earn virtual badges and soon, real-life rewards, for riding new trails. Tracker automatically checks you in at trails based on your GPS route data, so you never need to worry about forgetting to check-in or whether you’ll have cell service at the trailhead.
Tracker will manage your My Trails list for you. For each new trail you ride, we’ll take the trail off your Trail Wishlist and add it to your My Trails list. A map showing all the trails you’ve ridden can be found on your profile page.
When we launched the Singletracks Ridelog in 2005(ish), there weren’t a lot of options for tracking ride and fitness data online. Today there are thousands of great web and smartphone apps for doing so (including Strava), but we still use the Ridelog data to calculate average ride times and distances for mountain bike trails. Connect to Tracker and we’ll automatically populate your Ridelog with summary data about each of your activities.
Share trail maps
In the past, sharing GPS data required a PhD in computer science but with Tracker, we’ll grab route info from your ride and attempt to turn it into a trail map. Once you get 10 approved routes in your account, you’ll even score a free Pro account on Singletracks. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
We’ll send you an email when we identify one of your rides as a mountain bike ride on a known trail, asking you how the conditions were out there. This helps other riders plan their trips, and also adds to our database of trail condition trends at individual trails.
