I use Strava only because my Lezyne GPS unit uploads to Strava. I have been on the Strava site 3 times this year to check my total mileage for the year. That’s the only stat I care about and have 0 interest in KOMs or competing on segments of my rides.

Much of my riding season is spent working with teens on training rides. I average 12-15mph on those rides depending on which kids I am with. I will never ‘win’ any KOMs or compete at those speeds, so Strava’s competition and social platforms are completely useless to me.
