In January 2018 The GoldenCheetah Open Data project was started to enable athletes to contribute to the body of data available for the benefit of cyclists .
The aim is to create an open-access database of endurance exercise data for use by amateurs, academics and professionals.
- The data is entirely anonymized, no personally identifiable information is stored or made available.
- We store one file per athlete, with each file containing a summary json plus csv files for each activity
- We publish the actual data to an Open Science Framework project here: https://osf.io/6hfpz/ (DOI 10.17605/OSF.IO/6HFPZ)
- This repo provides tools for working with the data
One of the first things to drop out of the open data collection is a table describing the performance data of the cycling population.
These tables show values for things like CP, W’, Pmax across the population and by percentile. (for example, if your 5 min Power is 558 Watts then 99.99% of the population have less power than you).
To contribute to the GoldenCheetah Open Data project you need to be running GoldenCheetah 3.5-DEV1810 or later and after a while (10 restarts) it will ask you if you want to contribute
