General cycling advice ( NOT technical ! )
A lot of my cycling pals use it, but I can't see what all the fuss is about. One of the loys of cycling is a sense of freedom. Another is the relatively low-tech of a bicycle. Both of these principles seem at odds with apps, gps etc. I also learned recently of a horrid sounding system 'digital epo', which allows users to manipulate their Strava times. Rather defeats the competetive element of Strava. I suppose strava is just another tool in the box. Useful, but only if you actually have a use for it.
I like using Strava to see what my club mates are up to and to check out the rides of friends in other countries. It's a pretty good form of cycling social media. I'll never have a vast collection of KOMs but I do like seeing the occasional PB on certain segments.
Another feature of Strava - you can compare yourself against the top Pro's riding the Tour de France. Just had a look at Marcus Berghardt - he averages 625 miles a week against my 219 average. He does 25 hours a week against my 15 - obviously he rides much faster than me!
