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.”
