Average Constant Saves the Day

I just finished doing a preliminary ride of a 5 mile loop.

The course came out to 4.99957 miles. Needed a 2.3 foot adjustment. This was a slight pain, as the race director preferred a common setup point for his start/finish line. Still, it was closer than I have ever seen an unknown closed loop to come out.

I had used larger constant in my measurement. When calculated by average constant the length came out to 5.00147 miles.

I left the route as is with no adjustment. Of course, if my second ride beats the first by 8 feet or more I may have to rethink.

Sometimes the option to use the average constant can be handy.
