Strata is an app just like MapMyRide. If you use one you don't really need the other. I use MapMyRide and I've tried Strava as far as I can remember there isn't a way to link them together.

Vocabulary question

What do you call the different gear sets? I have a 21 speed bike, so it has three big sprockets in the front and seven smaller sprockets I the rear. Is there a technical name for these two gear sets?
