Strava "club" for BF clydes?

Who would be interested in joining a Strava "club" set up for Bikeforums clydesdales? Or, if one already exists, someone please tell me about it.

It might be kind of cool to be able to see each others' rides that post in this forum, track ride progress, etc.

So, who would be interested?

It's such a good idea that there's already one:

Me too. Now I just need the roads to clear up and my MD to give me the clearance to ride again.

Same here! I'm stuck spinning my brains out in the house. All I can track is time, need to see if I can hook up a generic computer to track mileage at least.

I hooked my Bontrager Trip 2 to the rear wheel and just use that and my phone to track my heart rate.

I would like to join Strava but they don't allow the HRM I use to access their system since they had issues with it "disconnecting" or something like that. So until I need a new HRM I won't use Strava.

Which HRMs are compatible with Strava? I'm looking to get one and hadn't considered that some might not be.

The Zephyr bluetooth HR monitor is around $75 and it's compatible with Strava. I've been looking at it for a good while now, but in recent months I went back to recording all my rides with my Garmin 305 and HR monitor strap instead of with my phone, because I've had better uses for that $75. Any HR data saved in a Garmin will carry over to Strava when the ride is uploaded.
