I'm in. I've used Strava for some time. Always riding a C&V bike but never bother to indicate which one and just keep the default Cannondale.

Thanks for setting it up.

Now I'm receiving kudos from strangers for ordinary rides. I gather that's the equivalent of likes on facebook.

Uh oh. Data sync failed, for this morning's ride.

This raises an interesting questions of etiquette--for me it was intuitive to follow and give kudos (from Greek κῦδος praise, renown) to all you strangers because Strava, for me, functions as a social structure to motivate riding. It's like any support group, except it "supports" behavior that is already healthy and enjoyable.

I don't necessarily "like" rides I give kudos--kudos is more like listening when you tell your story at AA.

But maybe other people find the follows and kudos intrusive or overfamiliar? I would like to know.

I don't mind them, and as someone said, I can turn off the notifications on my phone. I just found them a bit peculiar. Keep sending them.

I'm not a member of AA but I am a member of ACA, and I do like the format, where when one person speaks, no one else speaks, to ensure we get to speak fully. I like the affirmations.

If the stranger is Adam then that's me giving you kudos. I just can't resist complimenting you on surviving 10km rides at a time in NYC.

Thanks, Adam! My previous commute was 21km, so this commute seems short. I find 10km to be the ideal commute distance. I wouldn't want to commute 2km to work, so I didn't apply to the nearest university recently when I was looking for a job. And I have a super lucky route, along the river, not in insane NYC traffic.

Couldn't ask for a better illustration of what I like about bikes. "Did you apply for the job down the street?"
"Nope, commute wouldn't have been worth it."

I know, that sounds ridiculous, but it's absolutely true.

I had a 2 mile ride to a previous job. It was the best and worst ride. Long enough that you can get a little damp on your ride, but not long enough to justify a change of clothes.

I've had a lot of fun playing with Strava. This week, I happened to be at Portland International Raceway (on business, without my bike) at the same time as the Oregon Bicycle Racing Association folks were racing... and I got the idea of logging a quick "ride" so I could see their flyby data.

I got even more data than I expected... at least 64 different racers were logging their rides that night. I can play back the races and see their speeds and their lap/segment times, and in many cases I can see data from their heart rate monitors, power meters, and/or cadence sensors. I can see which riders set new personal records. From that, I can easily see that the final lap is generally the fastest one for most racers. I might go back and look closer to see just how much faster. Anyhow, they're all a lot faster than me... though I'm improving.

In this overview screenshot, you can see that one race was wrapping up as another one was starting, thus there were two distinct pelotons. (I've got the traces and icons for more than half the riders turned off.) It's fun thing is to hit the "play" button and watch the commotion in this view as half the racers pull into the paddock and later when riders go their separate ways.

Even Strava doesn't want my slow-ass rides

I have just as much fun trying to load ridewGPS files onto my Garmin. I drag 'em in to the folder, save into the folder, whatever, they're never there. Tech headaches are why I can't operate a smart phone, either. It's a good thing I'm getting old and won't have to live long with[out] this stuff.
But now we have suspensions that think for us. Isn't this grrrreat?.....

No thanks.

My Garmin HR scares my doctor, the cadence depresses me, and whenever I ride with the locals, they can't wait to Strava their results on the group's Facebook page. Just not for me. I just wanted to ride 50, enjoy it and go home.

I rode 60 on Friday @ 17.5, enjoyed it with a friend.

Saturday, 40 @ 20 was nothing but looking at the road and taking my turn pulling, so I did the last 10 solo and actually looked around. I saw a chicken in the road, and a turtle. Earned a cheeseburger, a rarity for me.

I also thought that Strava was nothing more than chest thumping, but I discovered that it provides useful metrics. It's easy enough to keep your rides private, if that's an issue. Strava really does a great job of measuring activity and keeping me motivated. I'm still not riding as much as I should and I'm never going to be Cat-anything fast, but I enjoy a good result on a segment or a month where I make my riding goals.

Give it a try!

I once had a 1.4 mile commute. I don't like walking that far, because it feels like I'm wasting time going so slowly. Driving wasn't practical, as I'd have to pay to use the garage, and walking from the garage to the office ate up any time advantage. That's why I rode. I did get drenched in a downpour, so having a change of clothes was totally justified. It doesn't cost anything (except a tiny bit of effort) to keep clothes at the office. Nowadays, I have everything: dress shirt, t-shirt, trousers, belt, underwear, socks, and shoes, because ya nevah know.
