I like having a plan for my hiking and biking trips (Northern California), to have an idea about their length and aggregated climb, and also to have a track in my GPS to stop wondering if I am taking the right route.

Also, there are other adjustments you could make to improve performance, but these 4 are an absolute must – read on. Continue reading

Enter myMail app. Continue reading
