This form will import your GPS data file (e.g., GPX), or plain-text data (tab-delimited or CSV), and create a KML file that you can view in the Google Earth application or import into Google's "My Maps"/"My Places" system. (To create GPX files, use the conversion utility. You might also be interested in the Google Maps input form, which creates interactive HTML maps, or the JPEG/PNG/SVG form, which creates simple raster or vector graphics. To resize and/or colorize Google Earth markers based on a particular field, use the data form.) Related:  data viz tools

Building Endurance - The Mountain Bike Strength Factory Endurance is the ability to keep on going and ride all day; up hill, down single-track and everything in between. It is an important physical attribute whether you just want to ride laps of a trail centre with your mates or race an XC or enduro event. At the extreme end of MTB endurance are 24 hour and marathon races, as well as multi-day stage races requiring consecutive long days in the saddle at high levels of effort. Endurance can mean a few different things, depending on your goals and your ability as an athlete. For a beginner, new to exercise and MTB, increased endurance could mean being able to ride for over 2 hours with minimal stops.
