If I have a GPX track, what's the easiest way to reverse it?

Depends what tools you have at your disposal.

For me, load it into Garmin's Mapsource, double-click the track, and select the Invert option.
Done.

GPSBabel has a reverse filter.

The gpsbabel documentation is poor... and the man page on debian is awful...

I just tried:

gpsbabel -t -i gpx -x reverse -f in.gpx -o gpx -F out-reverse.gpx

It's not reversing, just padding digits on every trkpt...

Fnnnngh

Can’t you just do it on your Wahoo?

The command should have the input file before the reverse filter. Otherwise it doesn't have anything to process.
ie
gpsbabel -t -i gpx -f in.gpx -x reverse -o gpx -F out-reverse.gpx

Or try using the GUI?

My choice would be:

Bikehike.co.uk
Load Route
Reverse Route
Save Route

Does that require signing up for an account?
