Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Hi Shaf,

This is how I bagged that square - with a walk up from Marsden:
https://www.strava.com/activities/2172531740

It involved a bit of an easy scramble up a steep bank, followed by a there-and-back stroll across some typical Peaks moorland.

HTH,
Pete

Interested in the Redeye, as it's so small, would you consider posting to Spain? Normal mail, no fancy stuff, works best.
No problem posting to Spain. I'll price it up tomorrow and drop you a PM.

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

bribing a kid on a bike with haribo to show me round his dad's land. 😁 Top notch exploring ! The amount of times to get to the 100 SQ level is nuts, just look at those guys cluster numbers Yeah, I started plotting the outline of the square I'd need to compete at that level, and it's a mind blowing ...

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Pete, not sure if it counts if you were on a tandem - I mean there's no evidence you did it under your own steam. Could have been the other rider doing all the work..... :lol: :lol: Steve, you'll just have to trust me that riding the tandem gives me a significant disadvantage over my solo. I would ...

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

A lovely hilly tandem ride from Sheffield this morning was the latest piece of the jigsaw - and it's got me to 54x54: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50097240221_f4299758f7_b.jpg I can get to 55 with just 2 more rides, but after that it's back to the long haul of laying the groundwork for the ne...

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

OK, here's a real VV ethics question - if you put in at Liverpool on a rising tide and ticked off the squares in the middle of the channel is that under your own power?

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Not sure I understand the second point - how else would you enter a tile? Drive to the tile, get out of the car, walk round the car recording, get back in the car and drive home. The self powered activity must start outside the square to be collected. Yes, as Sean said. If you've got 1 isolated til...

Can you make that work? Do you have to rename all your rides as "From home" and filter by name perhaps?

Because sod that :lol:
Yeah - that would be crazy right ?

Whereas what we're all doing is P.E.R.F.E.C.T.L.Y. N.O.R.M.A.L.

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

I assume it’s cheating if your rides don’t start from home? Not cheating - unless you've decided to apply the 'From Home' rule yourself. My personal rules for a contributing activity are: * Self-powered activity (cycle, walk, climb, paddle, swim). * Enter the tile from another tile. Others elect to...

Very well done Andy - you now have the glory of the top slot on the BB square tickers list: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50006602801_46aac903e0.jpg I'm hoping that I'll be re-taking it soon though :-) 4 rides & a stroll should sort it. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50006632816_eb719a3e3...

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

This is quite a useful resource for getting to the more difficult squares: https://rideeverytile.com/tiles/heatmap I dunno what data that is based on but I can confirm it is incorrect. Incorrect in what way - presumably there are some tiles that you've ridden that are not appearing on the heatmap ?...

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Moved on to 10x10 after this weekends ride. Next tiles look relatively straightforward, however getting much past 12x12 is going to be tricky. I’d plotted a little SUP trip down the River Dee back to Chester to pick up a further 5 tiles, however looking at the map again this weekend I’d overlooked ...

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Looks like the very recent Strava update has included a major overhaul of the route planning. As far as I can see, this means that there is currently no integration back to VeloViewer, meaning I can no longer plot routes with an Explorer Tiles overlay :cry: I've emailed Ben @ V-V to see if he's got...

You can tell those who are now retired / bugger all else to do by their max square.

Not retired yet, but no kids and an understanding wife.
In fact, she's joined me on many a VV ride on the tandem.

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Very quick response from Ben @ V-V. He sounds busy :grin:

He pointed to this post on his FB page.

To summarise:
Unlikely to be getting the overlay back in the short term, but there are a couple of tips to make life a little easier.
