Strava Changes - New Ride Screen, And Fun Analysis Of The Fifty+ Club

This evening, Strava changed their 'ride report' layout significantly. It's better on balance, but there are a few items that should be on the main page and are no longer easy to find.

For the last few weeks, I've also been following our "BF 50 Plussers" club on their revised club page. See here: https://www.strava.com/clubs/bf-50-plusers

It's interesting to see who's riding, what distances, at what speeds, how much climbing, doing long rides, and so on. This information is available for the current and previous weeks.

Wow, I had no idea, thanks for sharing that link. Fun stuff and I'm not doing too badly all things considered!

I saw that last week. After some head scratching, I decided it was pretty cool.

That weekly summary is nice. And I didn't know a rider can belong to multiple clubs at the same time.

Are you too low on the list? Just adjust your data: digital epo

I rode the Bass Lake Double last Sat. but forgot and left my Garmin at home . No Strava miles for me!

Oh well, not tragic, I'll just have to ride more from now until the end of the year . . .

You can make a manual mileage entry, you know. You can't enter elevation gained and stuff like that, but you can get credit for the mileage.

Thanks Dudelsack,

No, actually I didn't know that. Will have to take a look and see how that's done. Odd that I could just enter the miles, though. I'd think I would have to get verification from the Fresno Bike Club (who put on the Bass Lake Double) or something to show I wasn't just making it up.

Will check it out though; thanks!

You'll have to reride it. It's only fair...

True Curtis, I was the fool who left my Garmin recharging on my computer as I drove off to Clovis. And I probably will ride Bass Lake again . . . next year. A beautiful double, really.

before the Grand Tour I bought an external power supply for my Garmin. I might not have needed it (60% power remaining at the lunch stop) but was glad I had it.

Going forward - this may help:

Load the Strava app onto your cell phone. Then if you leave the Garmin at home (which I've also done before) - just use the phone to track the ride. It works almost as well. (I.e. it doesn't track cadence or heart rate.)

That works for a short ride, but that app is a real battery suck. I can't see it lasting long enough for a 200 mile ride.

I did, however, love having it when I went to ride Diablo and forgot the Garmin.

Going forward it may help but first I have to go forward and get a smart phone. Currently working with a stupid phone circa 2006! Nothing down-loadable . . .

True - about the best you'll get from a smartphone is a quick century.

So it's back to the universal truth. "If it's not on Strava it never really happened."

Not sure about universal, but true on this planet for sure !

That said, I just did a manual input for my Bass Lake Double Century ride. Should there be an "issue," Richard Hoff of the Fresno Bike Club can verify that I rode the whole thing. Or Jeff Nickolls, who rode the whole thing with me (well, pretty much).

There will be no problems I am sure. On the dashboard we can tell it was a manual input but other than that it will be like any other download. The only problems come when someone forgets to turn off the Garmin or Phone and someone gets a KOM on a segment that is 20 MPH faster than anyone else on the Segments.

Well, anyway, I'm on the official finishers list: https://www.fresnocycling.com/powerho...shers2013.html

Scroll down to number 702! And they got my age right.

What am I missing? I had been using Map My Ride App on my smartphone. After reading many posts of people that use Strava I downloaded the app and used it for about 5 rides. I like MMR better. I do like the segment speed posting but don't see the benefits over MMR

I use both. I like the live updating of MMR for letting my wife know where I am, but the Strava user base is more competitive, so it's a better yardstick to measure my performance and progress. If all you care about is tracking your own rides, it's 6 of one, a half dozen of the other.
