    Just released: Estimated Time

    We're excited to announce another great feature for our Premium members: Estimated Time.

    What is Estimated Time?
    Estimated Time is a prediction of how long it would take you to ride a given route. This number is based on your recent riding history, and represents an estimate of moving time. Each time you upload a new ride, your Estimated Time profile will adjust to reflect your most recent riding. Only rides exceeding 10 miles (16 km) will affect these estimates.

    Is it smart? What about rides with steep hills?
    Yes, we designed it to be much better than a simple average speed. The calculation looks at how you perform on different terrain, and applies that model across each portion of the route you're looking at or planning. Currently the estimate is based off all your recent rides – soon it will distinguish between what type of riding you're doing (mountain biking vs. road, etc).

    My method is
    On Long rides out of town: To estimate how long I THINK it'll take me, then add an hour to be safe...

    On rides in town: Assume all rides in town take no more than 15 minutes. Be late for everything.

    "Assume all rides in town take no more than 15 minutes. Be late for everything"

    Most of my 'meeting' rides take 10-15 mins.

    Doesn't seem to work for going to Leith...

    I wonder if it takes into account cake stops

    maybe if it notices significant HR spikes after each stop it'll start to recognise and learn you km/cake ratio.

    "km/cake ratio"

    Think we need a proper word for that!

    The reciprocal, cake/km, is otherwise known as the Exercise Reward Factor.
