I imagine a very few people will be intensely curious. The first graphic shows the changes in elevation profile and distance for 2008 and the 2009 detour. It takes a little over 5 seconds to switch from 2008 to 2009 and then it should repeat to infinity and beyond. <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Detour Start for 2009</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="33.949599">33° 56' 58.5564" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-84.082940">84° 4' 58.584" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=33.949599+-84.082940+%28%2C+%2C+%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!

for Tour to Tanglewood 2009 Bike Ride Inline Skate http://roadskater.net/elevation-speed-profiles-and-speed-heart-rate-profiles-tour-tanglewood-2009-bike-ride-inline-skate Here is more data from the road between Volvo Trucks N.A., Greensboro, NC and Tanglewood Park, Clemmons, NC in the 2009 Tour to Tanglewood for Multiple Sclerosis. When I make elevation profiles, I like to force x and y to 0 because it helps me see how hilly the event is more accurately. You can make almost anything look hilly by setting the y-axis max/min to the elevation max/min. To make it better, I should probably plot all events on a 110-mile scale or some such (considering Carolina Century at 102 is usually the most I'd try in a day), but I don't yet really like how that looks. <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Tour to Tanglewood Start/Finish</span> <div class="street-address"> 7900 National Service Road </div> <span class="locality">Greensboro</span>, <span class="region">North Carolina</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="36.081311">36° 4' 52.7196" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-79.968112">79° 58' 5.2032" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=36.081311+-79.968112+%287900+National+Service+Road%2C+Greensboro%2C+NC%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=7900+National+Service+Road&amp;csz=Greensboro%2C+NC&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
