Best ride notes ever.
so this trail that looks really promising: http://goo.gl/maps/dwv4G it's not.
Any estimates of total mileage and climb for SF? I did most of Los Altos Hills in November, and it worked out to about 200 miles and 34,000 vertical feet (doing each road both directions, since most roads are dead ends). I'm guessing SF is, what, 5x that? (1000mi, 150K vertical)?
I haven't even thought about climbing, but I think 150K could be about right. Though mileage I think is off. Back of envelope...SF is 7x7 approximate streets on grid at .1mi apart yields 4900mi as a first approximation. I'm bummed @strava got rid of tags as they would be useful for pulling data for this project.
Poking around on the web, this ca.gov page says 930 non-freeway miles in SF county. Add in all the repeat miles, and you'll probably end up doing >2000..
Data is always good. That seems better...I wonder where my estimate is off. spacing >> .1mi? not really 7 x 7...
46 square miles. At .1mi apart, that'd be 10 vertical miles and 10 horizontal miles per square miles. That comes out to 20x46 = 920... very close to the reported number?
oh, I see what I did...I found the area in 1/10ths of a mile (or something like that). For reference though the 12 "mapping" rides that I have done have yielded 289mi so far (Sunset, Richmond, Laruel heights, Midtown terrace). There are a fair number of miles in just getting to/from neighborhood. I try to do unique routes, but I imagine this is much overlap.

Still have a bit to do too...
