Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The Strava Thread

This is the official Strava thread, until someone shows me there is another one.

Why do we need an official strava thread?

I don't think Doge has the authority to designate this thread as being "official." He is clearly overstepping his authority, here, as primus inter pares.

I won't believe it until Billy says so.

So this is the unofficial renegade Strava thread?

My main problem with Strava is that it keeps telling me there are other people faster than me. Must be some kind of error on their part.

And look how cocky Doge was by using the definite article: THE Strava Thread--in a brazen attempt to eclipse all other Strava threads that might have the temerity to germinate in the future. Scandalous! But, these are scandalous times in many ways, I suppose.

If ever a thread was in dire need of moderation, this is it, right here.

I've read that Strava can be addictive. There is this guy in my neighborhood that rides the same 2 mile loop over and over each day fully kitted up. I never see him riding anywhere else. He is always scanning to see if there are any walkers/strollers/yardworkers for an audience. If he sees any, then he immediately ups his game and starts making noises /facial expressions to show he is at max effort. He must be a serious cyclist! He has become the joke of the neighborhood. I was thinking about joining Strava just to see if he has his loop segmented with KOMs. If so, I would attempt to steal them at odd times in the day just to freak him out.

As the lantern rouge of all Strava segments local to myself, I recognize this as the official Strava thread.

I tweeted Strava support about an issue and now I have a support ticket.

Exciting.
