What is Strava

The Social Network for Athletes

At the start of a ride we’re sure you’ve seen, and heard, all the different GPS devices beeping as they start recording. If it’s a big enough group it’s almost musical.

What does all that beeping mean? It means people have learned the value of recording their workouts.

But are they getting the most out of that data? Do they go home and have an easy way to not only analyse their data but is there a way for them to compare their effort today against a similar effort across the same route?

If you’re just getting into cycling then it’s possible that you haven’t yet heard of Strava. If that’s the case then you might want to read further to see what Strava does.

If you’re already familiar with this great tool then you should spend some time checking out all the great tools and add-ons which will take your training to the next level.
