    I GOT to thinking i wonder if everyone in the group found a flat 10 mile TT they could do. wind would be a variable that is hard to control but..in affect we could have a virtual time trial amongst us all? any ideas?

    Hi Clydes,

    My brother just told me about the following Strava code:

    1monthtrialea

    Enter the code and it gives you 1 month free acces to the premium tools like Analysis and Suffer Score. No strings or credit card needed. i just applied the code and it works great!

    You can, but it takes a little work.
    Go to your Connect home page.
    Click on the Activities tab
    Click on a ride you want to upload to strava
    Once that page loads,
    Click on Export
    Export as a TCX or GPX file

    Go to Strava and click Upload, but make sure your Garmin Unit is not plugged into the computer
    Click on Upload a file on your computer
    Browse to select file
    Upload
    Done

    I did this with about 200 files, one at a time from Garmin Connect.
    It took me a whole evening.

    Thanks for setting this up. I agree that the segments provide some extra motivation to "drop the hammer" (although I don't have a hammer, per se). Maybe a tack hammer. I usually ride alone, too, and it's good to get some kudos and external motivation.

    Posted my first ride of the year! Although not sure it shows up automatically on the clydesdale/athena club page? Mine was manually entered, as my Garmin Edge 200 arrived yesterday but I was already at my girlfriends for the weekend...

    Will update this week with a few rides, using the new Garmin

    maybe i'm missing something, how do you get your BT HR monitor to work on android? I don't see anything to configure it like in the other apps. I have a Zephyr HRM.

    I dont think you do unless the Zephyr is supported explicity by the app. I believe most users are using the standalon, bike specific, GPS systems like the Garmin 500 or 705. They natively support HR etc.

    bummer, that alone kills the deal, back to sports track pro. or maybe i can run both at the same time? can 2 apps use the GPS at once? we'll see tomorrow...

    i have used endomondo and strava at the same time...on my android, seemed to work fine. luckily i have a garmin that im now using for strava untill android HR is online. Strava is pretty cool with the segments and all! of course for years i have worn a HR but never really used the data for anything substantial. but either way its what im used to!

    good luck.

    Anyone else not believe Strava's calorie calculations? I am getting 320 calories for 56 minutes of riding at an average of 13.6mph! My Garmin Edge gives me 843 which is probably closer...

    Maybe there is just a glitch in their system?

    The Garmins are famously "way off" on calorie count - Id go with the Strava/Garmin average.

    Most calculators give me around 700 for my ride info/weight.

    Oh well, guess I will just ride and forget about calories burned, its obvious NO one knows the real calories burned without probably a really expensive machine.

    I was not aware of this, but it makes me feel better. I have a Garmin 800, and it records FAR lower than my old Sigma bike computer. I have also used RunKeeper on my Android with a HR monitor, and it was usually higher than the Garmin offerings.

    I just did a 6 mile jaunt and got 381 from garmin vs 248 from Strava (same data source, btw, my garmin)

    I really don't care what it says, I don't take it into account anyway.

    Strava extracts your waiting time... I just uploaded the same ride to strava and garmin FROM my garmin and the mph is 2 mph different (tons of stop lights tonight, ugh), the elevation is nearly identical, time is nearly identical, max speed is different by 0.2 (how is that possible? Same data).

    I had larger differences when I used my android strava app at teh same time as the garmin 500 but I trust the garmin enough now to save my phone battery.

    Join the gang on Strava Beanz, it's cool. Maybe you'll shame me into tackling GMR sooner than I want to.

    I did join the Clydes but this can get scary. I see all the little segments that people post and think "I can beat that"

    I only go as fast as Gina's let's me but if she turns me loose, I'll get nuts on Strava with all the little segments posted!

    I just might have to start an account for her too.I ride just about every ride so I'm getting kilt on GMR.

    You know... and this is merely a suggestion... but once you figure out where the segments are you can just haul butt to the top and then sit tight. (hit pause on the ol' Garmin) until Gina gets there.

    Those little segments are something, who knew they could be so enticing. I set a PR on this nasty little hill on Bastunchary today (from Associated up) but some clown marked that stretch of road as dangerous so they won't show rankings. It's probably better, it's bad for my ego to be 361 out of 362.

    There's a free code posted on the clyde club so you can try the premium service out for a month if you want. The HR analysis is interesting but I'm not sure what to do with it just yet.

    That's my plan, find the segments and haul booty. Gina won't be far behind but from what I seee, a minute can make the difference on the rankings.

    I upgraded for the free period, pretty cool but I dont use any HR or power meters.

    Check this out. This is actually Gina's time on this section of SART since we ride together. If I could accurately record her times, she might get some awards ha ha! Narrowed down to Clyde club times.

    These others guys have powermeters though.

    Well, one of them is me and no, I don't have a power meter.... people with power meters have little lightning bolts next to the watt measurement. (You have to enter your weight and then strava guesses at your power output). Gina was cooking! I mean, on a bike, not in the kitchen.

    Go look at the Yorba Regional Park Straightaway segment and sort by clydes, I like that one better.

    You can kind of do that when you look at the segment pages. You can filter out the skinny people and young 'ens on the left of the leaderboard.

    Yep - all you need is a heart rate monitor and Strava will give a guess as to how many watts you put out. I have no idea how accurate those numbers are, but we clydes can show some impressive watts. Frequently, my wattage is considerable higher than those who beat me up a hill. That makes me feel better anyway

    EDIT: Nevermind, all you have to do is fill in your profile with your weight and it will do watts. The HRM allows Strava to calculate the Suffer Score.
