    Post your ride from GarminConnect / Strava / Other.

    The roadies have a thread going where people post their rides from garmin connect, strava and random other things.

    We should do the same.

    I'll start off with my ride today...

    http://app.strava.com/rides/13568550

    I'm learning to climb, and finding anything that I can ride that gives me elevation changes... This climb went great, hit the summit and started to descend and that's when the wind slapped me in the face. Rode into a headwind for the rest of the ride and died.

    Is that all you've got?

    Hi there St3venb,

    I think that if you do a search, you'll find one of these threads already exists in the clyde forum. You'll also find we have a Bikeforums Clyde club on Strava. It seems as though the Strava thing provides an easier way of watching what others are doing than continually needing to follow a BF thread and then click on links to actually see what everyone has ridden.
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

    I did a this short loop a couple of times while on vacation last week. Wanted to do more, but my back went out while I was there. It had more climbing than I've done since last year's Hilly Hundred:

    Last night my wife and I hit the chinese buffet, it's seriously been months since we've done that. Anyway I decided to go do a quick ride to help offset the extra calories. I wasn't really watching my computer but according to my data here I hit 29 mph on the flats (maybe slight down grade, but not much this is a pretty flat mup, I'm not sure strava's elevation graph is correct for this trail).

    Yesterday I used a vacation day and ended up getting both my bikes out. First ride was on the road bike:

    http://app.strava.com/rides/14308265

    Got 6 PR's on the ride!

    Then get home and swapped to the FX as I wanted to take it to the LBS for a look see with regard to shifting and brakes. I had adjusted the deraileurs (sp?) myself so wasn't sure if I did it right. The brakes levers felt too spongy...turns out the cable tenstion needed to be adjusted. Now I know how to do that going forward. No charge to me for the quick brake adjust and since they didn't need to do anything with the drive train, I was good to go.

    Left the Garmin at home, so used phone app for my long way commute this AM. I felt naked not having real time Speed and HR (page 1 on my Edge 500). Still managed a 15mpg avg.

    I'm using Garmin Connect, but Strava intrigues me. I'm wondering if it's possible to use both, at least for a short period, while I see if I like Strava. Does anyone know whether uploading to one will delete the ride data in my GPS so it can't be uploaded to the other?

    I upload to Garmin Connect, then to Strava and then to Endomondo. Then I delete off the Garmin unit to save memory room

    Beachgrad nailed it. You can upload data to multiple sites, and until you go into the activities log on the device itself.

    I've only just started using Strava, but so far I'm liking it. The nice thing with that site is that you can use the free version and it's pretty well featured without upgrading to the Plus account.

    Strava is great for monitoring how you do over certain stretches of road (aka the segment).

    Strava is bad because it tells you you're #1,136 out of 1,200.

    It's too hard to use your overall average speed as an indicator of how you're doing, IMO, so I do like Strava for that. If you join the clyde club, you can also see the other clydes here hitting PRs and that's pretty fun too.

    You'll be okay,

    I upload to the garmin software on my computer (OCD habit, I dont even use that software anymore) then i upload it to garmin connect then upload it to strava. all from the unit, it takes about 3 minutes for all three.

    I used the delete the ride after uploading it, once i discovered i dont need "every second" recording i now leave about a month of rides in the memory.

    I use Strava for the segments and Award motivation, use garmin connect for everything else. I wish the two would combine for the super awesomeness.

    here is my most recent ride (wasnt feeling good)
    http://app.strava.com/rides/14125285

    Here is my super easy forced ride the day before (i swear i was going to fall asleep it was so boring)
    http://app.strava.com/rides/14009489

    here is my fastest ride i ever done the day before the saturday one;
    http://app.strava.com/rides/13914903

    here is my longest ride yet
    http://app.strava.com/rides/13451490

    here is where i got a 7th place on a segment;

    Good to know. I had assumed Garmin Connect deleted the ride data from the GPS unit after uploading. Guess I should put it up on the rack and see what's actually still inside it.

    The whole gang of family riders went on this, both brother inlaws along with my 14 year old son and 14 year old nephew.

    This was my favourite ride for all out fun. A group of 12 riders from the LBS.

    I upload into gramin, then strava. never had a problem.

    I later (after 4 or 5 rides) delete the rides in my garmin by going into info history then deleting the rides in the garmin itself. no need to plug in to delete stuff.

    Join the Clyde group - it can be inspiring. I also upload to both GC and Strava. Here is my fastest average ever but with no PRs on any segments - no wind assists I guess

    I could never get the Garmin plugin to work in Strava, but that's not a problem, since I just copy from the Gamin as if it were ant USB drive. I checked the "drive properties", and at the rate I'm filling it, I'll need to start deleting files by 2014.

    I used to load to GarminConnect, Endomondo, and Strava, but it was starting to be too much trouble, so now I just use Strava.

    I just got another PR this afternoon, and am now 117 out of 1ksomething on the segment. I really like this one because of a gentle prevailing tailwind that makes me look faster than I really am.

    That seemed to work fine. Strava found all 40-some rides still on the unit. Here's the same Pennsylvania loop I posted the Garmin data for:

    http://app.strava.com/rides/14396871

    Strava rated one of the climbs at Cat 4, something Garmin didn't do. And the segments must have been created by someone else who's ridden the loop, because I didn't make them. I did the loop clockwise, and the stretch along Buffalo Run Rd was some of the most enjoyable riding I've ever done. It fell about 400 feet in 5 miles, but with lots of dips and rises - a classic "roller" road, with plenty of twists and turns along the way, smooth pavement, almost no cars, lots of wooded areas, and even a small tailwind. It was like bicycling paradise.

    Two things you may wish to do - change your last name to B in your profile and play with the security settings on Strava to exclude your house. I set a couple 500 yard circles around my street so that all my rides appear to start and stop on the main road, so I think it's pretty clear which street I live on but not where.

    I'm really not paranoid, but in this day and age of information living forever on the internet, I'm slightly cautious.

    I dont hit start on my garmin until i am about 2-3 miles from my house, and dont hit stop on the garmin until i am about the same 2-3 miles from it. I also use the strava security thing too. Even then you can get an idea of my neighborhood i am in.

    I'm cautious too. I have "Strava Offsets" set for my home and work, and have scrambled my last name. The security Issue that I have heard people are concerned with is someone finding out where you live and stealing your bike. If you show them a location withing 1000 ft, and your last name, they can go to a county tax assessors office and find out where you live from property tax records, if you are a homeowner.

    I went ahead and joined the Clyde group on Strava, but I'll be damned if I can see what to do with it, or even how to get there from my home page.

    I couldn't even find the "clyde" group that members were talking about on this thread.
