There’s a long standing ToS tradition that dictates that YOU DO NOT POST GRAPHS unless they’re funny and/or you donate an extra $10 to DPF. This is a worthy tradition, nobody except you really cares about seeing your graphs - they look a lot like all the other graphs after all. But if you’re of the graph loving inclination and truly believe that yours are unique and need to be memorialized then what are you to do? In the interest of raising funds for the Davis Phinney Foundation I offer you a solution…
CUSTOM. PERSONALIZED. TOUR. POSTERS.
Yes, your very own piece of Tour memorabilia that will immortalize your graphs forever. I say “poster” but really it’s just a custom image generated on t’internet that you can save and do with as you wish. But, still, it’s YOURS!
I can’t see your data so I can’t show you your poster here. But I can show you a sample.
If this catches your eye and you’re thinking that your post-ToS reaction will be “yes, I truly Suffered, my graphs deserve immortality” then keep an eye on this thread, I’ll post info after close of play that will explain how you can create your own personalized Tour “poster”. All for free… apart from that graph fine extra donation to the DPF, of course
Oh and if you’d like a non-personal copy of the “poster” to inspire your Suffering then you can prepay your fine to my DPF fundraiser and I’ll send you one to tide you over (http://dpf.convio.net/goto/jamestyson)
UPDATE: The generator is now live. You’ll need .fit files for each stage but once you have them head here https://tos-poster.vercel.app/ to build your custom poster. Instructions on the site.
[Unofficial but approved by GvA. No rip off pirate merch here. DPF for the win]
Great idea Sir Erik! A slightly more personal example (with a few fake graphs cos I haven’t done some of them recently/ever…). Also shows that the Rainbow of Suffering colours are optional/configurable. If anybody wants to print this off and claim it as theirs then double DPF fine!
Riders are starting to cross the finish line so the unofficial Tour merch stand is now OPEN!
If you’d like a personalized memento of your week of glorious Suffering then head over here https://tos-poster.vercel.app/ on the way out and pick up your custom poster.
Caveat: you will have to manually feed the generator .fit files for each of your stages and press some buttons but hopefully it’s not too involved. Mobile should work but I’d recommend using a desktop browser if you can. There are some instructions on the site but if you can’t make any sense of it then ask.
The “posters” are entirely free. There’s no logging or tracking or cookies or evil in the website so I won’t know if you’ve built one. An extra “graph fine” donation to the DPF would be highly appreciated though, entirely up to you how much and who you send it to.
Knights - I’ll share a code (not here!) that will get you access to a special badge for your poster.
Going for a topic bump by posting mine (graph fine has been paid, DPF for the win). I decided that I should tone down the colour for stage 7 as things got pretty dark there. I may still revisit the other stage colours to reflect how I felt each day. Make yours here https://tos-poster.vercel.app
