Strava is ace.

That is all.
Yeah....until a certain N Moggy keeps beating your times up all the hills in the Peak District :rolleyes:

I must be in the minority that enjoys segments. They're just a bit of fun, that you can challenge yourself on.

I like to create longer TT style ones though. That separates out the short blast segment hunters that hit various individual climbs out on different rides, as the longer segment shows.

Never understood the disdain some people have for Strava. Why get wound up, if you're not interested in it?
It's not disdain. Some cyclists get so focused on beating Strava times that they forget about the basics. Like safety. That winds people up, understandably in my opinion.

Just above where the two lines meet, there's a segment?

I like it to track how many miles I've cycled each week, month, year etc.

I don't really give a stuff about segments.

The one that starts in one field, ending in another, is the one that doesn't make sense. It's a 40° slope on ankle twisting ground.

The KOM's are safe on the road running up the pictures. It's used in the Tour of Ireland and a few other races.

That's fair enough. I agree on that point. Some of those cyclists not on Strava are like that too.

What I can't agree on is tarring everyone with the same brush. Some people talk about Strava like everyone on there rides dangerously.

I give elapsed time more precedence than moving time because it takes into account the traffic conditions.
