Explore Corallian Cycling Club ride data using this four dimensional Data Visualisation tool. Select which data to plot on each axis and which data to size and colour the bubbles. Hover over a bubble to see the ride data.
Hilliness Factor is gradient (m/km) divided by 10. You will sometimes hear cyclists refer to a ride as "one times hilly". A ride with 1000m of elevation in 100km has a Hilliness Factor of 1.0 and is classified as "hilly" or "one times hilly". Similarly a ride with 2000m of elevation in 100km would be "two times hilly". As a rule of thumb in Corallian CC a ride with a Hilliness Factor of less than 0.5 would be "flat", between 0.5 and 1.0 "undulating", between 1.0 and 1.3 "hilly" and more than 1.3 "very hilly".
How to use the Data Visualisation tool
Use the tool to explore how we ride. For example the default chart shows Ride Distance vs Elevaton. The bubbles are coloured by the Ride Category and the size of the bubble is proportional to the Ride Average Speed. You can see how red rides tend to be hillier or longer and therefore slower. Blue rides are flatter, have a range of distance but tend to be a bit quicker. By altering the graph you can see how Wednesday night rides and Welcome Rides (4th Sunday) tend to be similar. By colouring the bubbles by ride leader you can see which leaders prefer flatter and shorter rides and which lead hiller and longer rides. Use the tool to see which rides might suit your riding style. The committee will use the tool to ensure we are being consistent in the rides we are offering.
