Golden Cheetah
Cycling Performance Software for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows


Golden Cheetah is available in binary form for Fedora (RPMs), Mac OS X (Universal Intel binary), and Windows. It is also available as source code.

Golden Cheetah downloads data from all versions of the PowerTap computer including the new Joule GPS. Previously you needed to have the FTDI USB Drivers installed if you were using the PowerTap USB cradle (as opposed to the older, serial cable). This should not be necessary. If you are having problems then you can manually install the FTDI USB driver.

On Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, Golden Cheetah also downloads from the SRM PCV. On Mac OS X, you'll need to install the open source PL2303 driver to download from an SRM. Please see the WIKI article - PCV on Mac OS X for further information.

Download Current Production Release - Version 3.1.0

Installation is simple. Download the file for your operating system.
On Mac, open the DMG and drag and drop where you would like to install.
For Windows, run the Installer and follow the prompts.
For Fedora, install as root (yum install filename.rpm) or using sudo (sudo yum install filename.rpm).

There is a Manual and a FAQ that you can use to help you use the program.

There is the older Version 2.1.0 User's Guide on how to install and use Golden Cheetah that can assist also.

You can also view the release notes for 3.0.2 or download older releases of Golden Cheetah.

Development Releases

Gareth Coco has also made regular development builds available. These binaries are based on the latest source code, so they may have more features and less (but sometime more) bugs than the stable release above.

Source Code

The Golden Cheetah source code is available via git. See the Developer's Guide for more information. You can also browse the source on github.
