The activity graph is a line graph of your entire activity with each individual metric illustrated in one place. By default, the graph will display in dual-axis mode with minimal metrics displayed. From here, you can customize the display to add or subtract metrics from view, change colors, create or remove interval laps, edit out data points, etc. Use this topic to gain familiarity with the range of features in the activity graph section.

Basic Features

  • Zoom in on selection: Drag cursor across desired selection and release cursor, the graph will auto-zoom to your selection. - The selection will show it's own interval data on the interval table below the graph as Selected - To reset the graph, use the reset button next to zoom
  • Hide/show intervals: Click the box in the "Show" column to show or hide intervals from the activity graph. This will not remove the data from the graph, but remove the interval marker from the graph.
  • Include/exclude zeros: Click the drop down menu on the interval table to choose to include or exclude zero values in the activity/lap summary data
  • Choose color: Change the color used for each data type on the activity graph
  • Hide/show metrics: Click directly on the name of the metric below the graph to hide or show it on the activity graph.

Customizing the Graph

Several options are available for customizing the view of the activity graph and can be found by clicking the cog-icon icon.ride-graph-menu 

Under cog-icon Settings, the following options are available:
  • Smoothing: By default, 1 second view (no smoothing) is selected. By changing this view, the activity graph will update to display a rolling average for the duration selected. By inputting 3 seconds, for example, the data will be less spiky and trends may be easier to view.
  • X-Axis display: The X-Axis can be toggled between time of day, elapsed time, or distance. 
  • Show combined axis: This option switches from the dual axis view and combines all metrics on to one y-axis
  • Show detailed intervals: Shows a summary of metrics from each interval across the graph. When disabled, only the interval number will be displayed, but the details will remain in the interval table below the workout.
  • Show peak powers: Adds a table of peak power durations below the interval table. When the check mark is selected to the right of the peak power duration, the selected peak power will be highlighted on the activity graph.
  • Show timer events: Adds a vertical line for timer events from the workout description. A green line marks the start of each effort and a red line marks the stop.
  • Reference lines: Click on the reference lines tab to add a reference line to the graph. Choose which channel/metric to use, a label, value, and color for the lie.
    - E.g.: To see how your intensity compares to your threshold, add a power or heart rate reference line with your threshold set as the value

Creating or Editing Intervals

If you weren't able to use the lap timer on your head unit to mark the beginning and end of intervals or need to modify the existing intervals, use these options to create, modify, or add notes to the intervals you performed within a workout.

  • Create an interval: Select a range of the graph using your cursor (drag and release cursor, just like the "zoom" function detailed above". Once you have the desired range selected, click on the Screen Shot 2016-01-06 at 9.16.07 AM to create an interval. Use the dialog box to set a name, segment type, color, and description or notes for the interval.
  • Edit the interval length: Use the edit-icon edit icon on the interval table to edit the interval name, start time, and stop time.
  • Add interval notes: Click on the name of the interval to update the name, type, color, or to add notes.

Editing Bad Data Points or Spikes

If there is an error in your activity data or you would like to remove a channel of data from the graph, use the edit icon to make changes.

For more details on how to edit data points, see: Edit points on the activity graph

Creating a Comparison Graph / Multi-file or Multi-interval graph

Individual users and coaches have the option to compare / overlay multiple intervals across multiple activity files and athletes. This is a great way to compare historical efforts or compare different coached athletes doing the same workouts.
  1. From the activity graph, click the interval drop down in the upper right corner:
  2. Select all intervals you would like to compare (if no intervals exist, you will first need to create them)
  3. Click overlay and compare to redraw your graph
    - OR - 
  4. To select additional files, click the overlay iconride-overlay-icon
    - Choose your time period and check the box next to the file you would like to choose, then click Select [#] period/files
  5. Graph will then be redrawn to include the additional activity file

Splitting a File

If your activity file contains data from multiple activities, you are able to split the file into separate activities based on intervals. 

  1. Create intervals for the separate activities using the instructions above
  2. Click the cut icon  and select the interval(s) you would like to move to a new activity. 
  3. Select the interval(s) you would like to make into a new activity
  4. Update any gear or workout type changes
  5. Click Split
