Several Audax SA members now carry a SPOT2 GPS Tracker on all Audax rides.  The tracker reports rider position every 10 minutes.  Some points are missed if there is insufficient satellite reception at that time.  The track points are retained by the SPOT2 website for a maximum of seven days. 

 

The unit is about the size of a computer mouse, and can be fitted anywhere on a bike where there is space, provided it is effectively pointing skywards.  I have used it successfully attached to the drops on the handlebar, to the cross bar, the pannier bag and also on my helmet.  Its current home is on the down tube which seems to work fine and does not interfere with the garmin unit on my bars above.
