Downloaded the Strava app last night and I really like it. Looks like it could be a good motivational tool for training.
For those of you who have it, is it worth paying for the upgraded version? From what I can see there are only a few extra features but not sure if they’re worth the cost.
Thanks, MM.Posted 6 years agopixelmixMember
I don’t use mapmyride, but I do use garmin connect. I occasionally export files from Garmin Connect and then upload them to the Strava site (mainly if I have been out for a ride which includes some climbs I’ve done a few times before and I now include segments).
If you can export from mapmyride (for example as a .tcx file) then you can upload that to Strava quite easily.Posted 6 years agorootes1Member
I’ve created a new club called Singletrackworld if you wanna join?andytherocketeerSubscriber
If you haven’t already you should set an exclusion zone
Can also do this using GPSBabel on a gpx file too before uploading (to any site), if you wish. Then your home never appears anywhere online.
OK it might render stats a bit more inaccurate, but shouldn’t be too bad.Posted 6 years agodoboMember
I’m liking Strava, just checking out the premium features and analysing my crowthorne race and have a sufferfest score of 116 and points in the red of 116 🙂 its fairly interesting comparing to the previous round where my stats are very different. look forward to comparing a few other races.
strava does have some bugs though, the segment ranking is borked at times and often doesnt report the correct awards/ranks
also the most annoying one is that if i do a run of say 11k thats a fast one and i check my best 10k time under my profile it doesnt show because it wasnt exactley 10k?Posted 6 years agoJasonMember
Thanks of the free code 🙂
I have been using Strava for a few months, and do like it. There seem to be more local users so the Segments are getting more competitive, I keep having to search out more distant ones to get some KOMs.

I managed a sufferfest score of 152 at Crowthorne, in comparison at the Swinley race it was just over 100 – although I wasn’t trying to hard at that one. I am not sure how useful the figure is, but it does make comparison interestingPosted 6 years agoalanbill99Subscriber
I’ve been using it for a few months now and love the segments.
Is this much better than Endomondo? Been using it for a whil but get annoyed with 30% battery usage per hour. Is this any better?
Taff – I was suffering with my iPhone battery life over 2-3hrs, so I got one of these battery skins. Love it. Completely converted, upload a ride at the top of a segment to see if you need to go ride it again ! 7 hours battery now.Posted 6 years ago
