My last couple of rides, I started out taking one of my kids with me for a short distance on the road – basically as far as the respective kid was able to ride. When I ride with the kid, I take my hybrid Bianchi, and afterward I head out on my own ride. Afterward, when I download the ride data from the Garmin Edge to the computer, both activities appear as laps in the same activity. I had wrongly assumed that powering off the Garmin until my second ride would reset it to record a new activity. Deleting the first lap didn’t help, either, because it takes out the initial piece of my second ride that overlaps with the first ride. After a bit of googling, I realized I should have just read the owner’s manual. To record a second activity in the same day, you need to hold down the Lap/Reset button for about three seconds. Oh well, at least I know that moving forward.
