Six things we love about Strava

Why Strava has changed the way we ride

Strava isn’t just for amateur riders afraid to pin on a number, it’s used by a growing number of professional cyclists, too.

Niki Terpstra’s Paris-Roubaix winning ride recently achieved the additional accolade of being awarded the most kudos on a single activity in Strava history – 7,692 and counting – and Marianne Vos recently joined the Strava ranks.

While not all riders are willing to share their data, following a professional cyclist on Strava provides a fascinating insight into the training required by make it to – and stay at – the top and the super-human demands of racing at the highest level.

You can also compare your times on some segments to the pros and if you ever needed a reminder of just how good they are then look no further.
