I personally like Strava, I can track my progress and it also tracks my running, all in one place. Since moving to Amsterdam last year, it's a nice way to stay in touch with my friends in Chicago and see how they are progressing. And it's fun to be the KOM every now and then. Plus, my Garmin 800 had a dead pixel and was out for replacement for 3-4 weeks and I could simply use my iPhone to track things while I waited. A free app that made logging my rides convenient. The downside of Strava are the people who take it too seriously. If you are not one of those people, then you are doing it right.

I find strava to be a nice training tool (particularly if you have a power meter and are subscribed to their premium service) and a nice way to keep track of your friends that live elsewhere.

The most frustrating thing about strava is that sometimes it's just too hard to drive the appropriate speed in the car to just pip the local KOMs. It's subtracting from my riding enjoyment and to some degree, my sanity, as I'm finding myself out on the local bergs in the wee hours of the morning. Cruise control doesn't help as these muppets keep adding all these segments within a segment. 'Johnny big dog's vomit berg, (the harder bit from switchback 2 to 4)' for example. I need to slow down for KOMS within the KOMS for it to be plausible.

Might be time to uninstall. :noidea:

lukey muffler: I've had success taking the bus. To have the option of juicing my KOMs I always take a seat on the back row, so that when closing in on the finish line I can make a dash through the aisle, securing the KOM with precision. Added benefit; I don't have to drive myself. :-D :-D

Treat it as "Facebook for cyclists" and you'll love it.

Yep. That's it for me. Allows me to keep up with what a friend is riding on the other side of the world. Sadly, it makes me very jealous, since it's summer there & 25 here...
But it's huge there. She'll ride 50km & have 65 segments. That's nuts.

I have to add that the Strava challenges are a big motivation in my training as well. Collecting cool jerseys this season has never been more fun!

I've also started an open team and am giving away my own kit for the top miles in Feb, and will continue doing so throughout the year.
