How it works
Can I manually end a started ride before reaching the selected distance?
Yes, this is also possible. You can end your ride manually at any time (press the "End Ride" button). Manually and thus prematurely ended CHALLENGE rides are not shown in the rankings.
Can I record and upload my ride with/from a bike computer?
No, for reasons of comparability and to protect against manipulation, no rides recorded by devices other than your smartphone and the installed app will be allowed and considered. But who knows what the future brings.
How is the altitude profile (altitude data) of the rides determined?
When recording the journey via smartphone, only the lat/lon data of the route are recorded and used for the calculation of the ACTYVOLTS...
Is there a time limit for started rides / distances?
If a started ride is not finished by crossing the finish line or by manually aborting, the app automatically terminates the ride after 15 hours. Although this trip is listed in the Activity History, but it is not included in any rankings.
What happens if I've completed the distance but I'm not yet in the 5km finish radius?
In this case, you must continue the ride until you enter the finish radius. The app recognizes this and then finishes...
What is the result of my ride which is compared with other participants and reflects my performance in the ranking?
From the data of each ride, ACTYVOLTS are calculated on the basis of the individual route (distance, driving time, altitude profile)...
What should I consider when using the app to record a ride on my mobile phone?
In order to use as little battery as possible on your device, we recommend to close apps on your device that you do not really need during your ride.
Which data are not taken into account or neglected in the ACTYVOLTS calculation?
Wind and precipitation along the route driven - the wind is compensated as much as possible by means of a finish radius specification (5 km / 3.1 mi), ...
