Local Legend!

Notices
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

Local Legend!

Today Strava gave me a wreath and the title of Local Legend. I didn't have to pay or even ride fast.

I got one from Garmin, "You are a legend in your own mind."

Local Legend is how Strava tries to embarrass you for riding a segment too often.

Yeah, I have a few of those "local legend" things. I'm trying to figure out how to disable that. I don't really need a reminder that I ride the same routes too often. So far it looks like the only way to disable it is to set my rides to private or friends only.

Strava really needs a setting to opt out of LL without having to set rides private. I have at least a dozen routes but everyone of them uses the same segment to leave my neighborhood. It feels real stalky.

This is what we are paying for?
