Upload all your activities and never miss an update
If you love to keep your friends updated with your recent rides and view other people’s activity, Strava is the perfect tool to use. An immersive social media application for athletes, Strava is a fantastic way to stay connected with your friends around the world, share your activities and stay motivated on your fitness journey.
After uploading your rides to Strava you can see a variety of insightful statistics and analysis. Speed, cadence, elevation, heart rate and energy output are just some examples of categories displayed that can help you monitor your progress and continuously improve upon your personal bests.
For added motivation, you can also comment on your uploads and receive kudos (the equivalent to virtual “likes”) to help spur you on. Of course, completing community challenges and winning real-life prizes also adds to the fun!
With a community of 100 million active athletes spread over 195 countries, you can also see how your efforts compare over time with Segment Leaderboards.
You can even find pro riders on Strava and get inspired by their training & race efforts. Did you know what wattage Tom Pidcock put out during his first Tour de France stage win? Check it out on Strava!
