Do you have any idea why when I enter ACA data into Google Earth, it displays all the waypoints, but for some sections it displays only about 1/3 of the route (for example, WE 1 and 4) while for others it displays the entire route (WE 2 and 3)?Not really. I can only take a guess.
There is a lot of beauty in this state, and it is GREAT for cycling.
I'm trying to get maps with elevation profiles of some ACA routes.Your best bet is to use the paper maps published by ACA. They include an elevation profile.
First I tried using the ACA GPS files.This is one way to get a general idea about the elevation profile. Once you have the GPX file, load it onto your favorite web site tool such as Ride with GPS or GPSies. Both sites will show you the elevation profile and total elevation gain.
With Section 2, it seemed to map the whole route and give an elevation profile, but the distance it shows is only 300 miles, much less than the ACA says it is.This is expected. The GPX file posted on the ACA web site (at the time of this post) is a general representation of the route. It has a series of route points that could be > 10km apart, connected by a straight line, instead of exactly following the route. Therefore, the straight line is expected to be shorter than the meandering actual road.
Jamawani is weary.I sympathize with you. It's a lot of work to craft a length explanation for somebody who is likely not coming back to read it.
