What Is Strava?

STRAVA is a madly addictive app that has cyclists battling to be the virtual king of the road. Strava is changing the way you ride!

Strava, a website and app, has brilliantly tapped the power of GPS to change the way millions ride. Strava turns your solo or group rides into a real-life computer game.

Strava works by allowing cyclists to upload rides recorded via its smartphone app or any GPS bike computer such as Garmin. Routes, be they 5km commutes or 100km+ rides are mapped alongside times and data such as power output. Members may follow each other and create “segments”, turning stretches of road into virtual race tracks.

If a route takes in a segment, Strava automatically ranks the rider’s time. The cyclist with the best time wins King of the Mountain (KOM), a name taken from the Tour de France, where pros fight to be awarded the polka-dot jersey for best climber.

Strava gives you a ‘virtual locker room’ where you can share workouts among friends.

Strava fans say: “A bunch of grown men trying to compare where they stand seemed like a silly thing to do,” “But then you get into it and realise how much fun it is and what it adds to your riding. You use it to find key climbs if you go somewhere new. If a friend does a long ride somewhere, I get an alert and can send them a note saying well done.”

Another Strava fan says: “It allows you to track your progress and see how you compare with others without having to go through the formal or scary racing process,” “I definitely try to beat other cyclists and the first time I got KOM I pretty much danced around the house.”

Castelli History. Family Values, and a passion for Cycling

Castelli traces its roots back to 1876 and a fine tailor, Vittore Gianni, in the heart of Milan. Through the years, Vittore Gianni clothed AC Milan, Juventus, and the Milan Ballet. The first cycling clothing was made in the 1910s for the five-time Giro champion Alfredo Binda. Maurizio Castelli was born in 1948, and grew up following the races of Fausto Coppi, a close friend with Maurizio’s father who was then owner of Vittore Gianni. Coppi always wore Vittore Gianni clothing, including the first silk skin suits designed for Fausto’s time trials. That famous photo of Coppi and Bartali sharing a water bottle while climbing the Col d’Izoard? Yep, both are wearing Castelli jerseys.

After a brief but promising cycling career, Maurizio created his eponymous brand in 1974 and a series of firsts would follow: the first Lycra shorts used in racing and sold to the public, the first colored shorts, the first sublimation printed jerseys, the first synthetic winter clothing, the first use of windproof membranes, the first hydrophilic fabric treatments, the first anatomic seatpad, the lightest jersey ever produced, and the most aerodynamic jersey ever produced. Maurizio’s vision was to be at the forefront of technology, performance and design. Maurizio Castelli died in 1995 while cycling up the Cipressa climb, the next-to-last hill in the Milano-San Remo course.

Today, Castelli is dedicated to continuing Maurizio’s dream: to create the most innovative clothing for the cyclist seeking maximum performance.

Share Your World With GoPro!

The GoPro Hero3 is smaller, lighter, and features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. The Black Edition offers a number of ultra-high-resolution capture modes and high frame rates for standard HD resolutions; burst speeds for still photos has been greatly improved.

The GoPro Hero3 Silver and White editions are strong contenders in the sports camera market, but the faster, more powerful Black Edition is head and shoulders the best sports camera on the market today.

The GoPro’s appeal. It’s a small, high-def camera that you can attach to anything and control via a remote, a phone app or your computer. The image looks gorgeous and fish-eyed and shoots up to 4K video (at 12FPS)

Hacker friendly, the camera runs a webserver that streams the video out to your device (viewable via VLC or whatever). It also has a port on the back for attaching a screen or whatever you like.

For most, the biggest draw is watching GoPro videos on YouTube. Watching people backflip off cliffs, jump over taxis and speed down steep cliffs makes you want to buy one and leap out of a plane, filming your whole adventure!

Owning one doesn’t mean you’ll be doing what you see in other videos, but at least you’ll know you can if you want to!

If you are not into sports the camera is still fantastic to use. Just strap it to your dog, or film your cat in 120fps and then slow it down. If you want to make beautiful time lapse videos get an egg timer from Ikea and stick it on the top, take photos for 30 mins, voila!
