Cycling Science

By monitoring key aspects of your cycling and fitness progress, you get a better look at your current performance level and what you need to do to keep up the good work or continue improving. Select Garmin devices collect data while you ride in order to bring you these cycling metrics and physiological measurements. It’s worth noting that some of these metrics need additional sensors such as power and heart rate. If your device is showing you stats, but you want to know more about what they mean, then you’ve come to the right place. What can you do with this calculated information? That’s up to you, but we’ve got some suggestions.

Whether you ride for competition, exploration or simply for fun, Garmin can help you gather the data to prove how hard you worked or aid you in improving your form. That’s because select devices, including our dual-sensing pedal-based power meters, let you access cycling dynamics. Cycling dynamics refers to a suite of advanced metrics designed to give comprehensive insight into how you’re riding and how your performance changes based on variables such as position, bike setup, ride duration and more.

A Call to the Community

The dedication of the cycling community contributed immensely to the development of innovative new Garmin features such as Trendline popularity routing. As we continue to improve it, there’s one thing you can do to help. The more you can do to accurately categorize your rides or runs in Garmin connect, the more useful that popularity routing is going to be across activity types. Stay diligent about carefully differentiating your mountain bike rides from your road cycling rides, and the entire Garmin Connect community will benefit.
