Compared to RideWithGPS the auto-routing seemed pretty funky. It would take me on side roads all the time where it didn't make any sense. If I changed the mode it would reroute everything I had already routed.Next head to https://brouter.de/brouter-web. Click "Load" and then "Tracks". Select the KML file you just downloaded from VeloViewer. The map will be overlaid with tiles that are near your max cluster but not IN your max cluster - perfect for planning a ride to expand that cluster. The route planner is pretty nifty and even has features that Strava does not such as colour-coding the route to highlight climbs.
Yes. The RideEveryTile.com dev says (in a comment on this post):when you zoom out, a tile is not a tile
I remember when I first rode some harsh gravel climb. around 11 km took me over 3 hours. I just couldn't believe how slow the going is... all the best, and report back (so we at least know you didn't end up bear food)I guess around 15 km will be gravel. Stravr estimates three hours, so I'll bank on six.
Have I got it right? Looks like an exceptional series of (six?) waterfalls on or just off of the 林道作原沢入線.
So... as is typical, more (mis)adventure than expected. But now I'm warm and fed and home, I think it was probably fun.
It's called 古代生活体験村 (Village for experiencing ancient lifestyle.)Do you have some more information about this place you could Share?
razor thin ridgeline with steep drops on both sides, ropes and scrambling up and down required. Even with a tile on the line, I wasn't going to try it.
Thank you for the information.It's called 古代生活体験村 (Village for experiencing ancient lifestyle.)
Here's the location: https://goo.gl/maps/s8snGRmAq18A7Xw3A
Not cheap to stay, but the more guests there are to a room the more affordable it gets.
The janitor I met was really friendly and helpful. Some of the thatched houses are now badly in need of repair, but there are so few experts in the construction technique that repairs are very expensive and the owners are disinclined to spend money on them.

I looked at the Statshunters.com site and saw that many of the tiles that VV credited to me were not accepted on that site. Has my max square at 20x20 as a result. So, this will be a good resource for making sure I actually bagged the tile, no questions asked. I'll give it a try.I picked up another tip from Pete Bartlett, who runs rideeverytile.com - the EveryTile app for Garmin IQ (App Store link) - and installed it to Michiko for yesterday's ride.
It displays a simplified version of my track, and a very clear color change for tiles that have been used on the ride so far. The tile borders are based on the same calculation as VeloViewer, i.e., a 256 x 256 pixel image at zoom level 14 of OpenStreetMap), so if this widget says a tile is collected then VV will too - no danger of a discrepancy between Garmin/phone etc.
