In my opinion, one of the coolest features on Singletracks.com is the ability to track which mountain bike trails you've ridden. Once you've logged these trails, they'll appear on your "My Trails" list so that you can reference them later. If you want to get started creating your very own "My Trails" list, here's how to do it:
My Trails Button
When you're on any trail listing page on the Singletracks.com, if you want to add that trail to your My Trails list, all you have to do is click the "Add to 'My Trails'" button below the trail description:
Once you've clicked the button, you'll know that the trail has been added to your My Trails list if it looks like this:
If you added a trail to your list in error, just click that button again and it will be removed.
Finding Your Trails
Of course, clicking the button is the easy part--finding the trails that you've ridden can take some doing! If you know the names of the trails that you've ridden, you can easily run a search for them using the big search bar on the home page:
As you start typing the name of the trail, the search bar will try to autocomplete the trail name based on our database listings:
If you don't see the exact trail name, you can always hit the "search" button to view full search results.
Now, if you know that you've ridden a lot of trails in a specific area, you can run a search in the same search bar for your hometown or a destination you've visited. Then, from the town/city page, you can navigate to the trails that you've ridden:
Mobile App Check-Ins
If you're out riding a mountain bike trail, you can check in at the trailhead using the Singletracks.com mobile app for iPhone and Android. Checking in via your mobile device will automatically add the trail to your My Trails list and remove it from your Wishlist. For more information on using the mobile app, check out this article.
The My Trails List
Now that you've created your list, you can use and analyze the data any number of ways. To view the trails you've ridden, navigate to your public-facing profile via the dropdown menu in the upper right hand corner of the website. There, you can see a map full of pins with all of the trail systems you've ridden:
If you want to navigate to your complete "My Trails" page, just click the "view list" link next to the "My trails" text below the map.
I personally think the most satisfying result of using the My Trails page is knowing how many trails you've ridden over the course of your entire lifetime. Thanks to Singletracks, I can easily see that I've ridden 939 individual trails in 405 trail systems (as of the time of this writing, 10/07/14).
Singletracks also has a little leader board going to show who's ridden the most trail systems out of all the users on the website:
And that's not all. As you click around the website, you'll see this data used in different ways, including, but not limited to: telling you how many of the top 100 trails you've ridden, how many IMBA Epics you've ridden, and how many trails you've ridden in your home state.
So what are you waiting for? Start building your My Trails list now, and see where you rank!
