Garminised: data on Garmin uploads completely and correctly with 100% accuracy; the ride exists.

Garminated: no or partial inaccurate data on Garmin, upload fails; the ride never happened and you have joined the riding dead.

Stravagation: the technique of navigating a route between any two points with the aim of maximising the number of achievable segments ridden. A highly skilled Stravagator also takes into account the prevailing wind in order to enhance KOM/QOM possibilities.

Garmisery: that sense of despair and desolation experienced when a long cherished crown (http://app.strava.com/segments/903006) gets plundered by a young buck less than half your age. Well done Chris Hagerman... :(
