Was idly looking at some of the Strava routes on Cannock Chase the other day and noticed this one: A little leg tickle
This is basically my local loop (I live just up the road from Milford) and while it takes me more like 4 hours at my mince-tastic pace (congrats Matt M. BTW) I was more than a little surprised that it's 35 miles
Now I've never had a speedo or a cyclecomputer but a few mates have, and even allowing for calibration inaccuracies I'd got it down as about 25 miles.
Of course if it really is 35 miles and 4400 ft of elevation I'm quite chuffed
Is Strava absolutely accurate or is it all just relative?
