    +1 on this. I don't share my rides on social media, and Cyclemeter has great options for interval training if you've got a HRM Bluetooth sensor.

    LOL. Thanks for the good laugh. Reminded me of the time I was in grade school and got stung by a red fire ant. I was so mad at it I vengefully squeezed it between my thumb and forefinger.
