I tend to agree with you there.
There's a couple rides where it was very tough going due to the weather conditions (headwinds anyone??) and yet as far as Strava are concerned, it was a nice leisurely ride for me...


Yeah, I learnt yesterday that you don't get extra points for riding through hale and horizontal rain.

Although that was more demoralising and more concentration intensive. But if your hearts working harder then its a good indictation your trying harder, right?

I changed my max on strava to the highest I've seen it since I've had my HRM, ~187 from 195 I think, and it made quite a difference to those scores.

A feature that would be good to add would be a way to differentiate between group and solo rides. I guess the suffer score does that a bit.

You can. When you save the ride details it will ask if it was a group ride or a commute.

There was solo/group/commute/trainer options at one stage, but that doesn't apply to the leader boards though.

I seem to be wrong. The option for group ride has gone.

I haven't seen the solo/group option since the Strava's upgrade, the commuter option however does factor into a separate leaderboard.

On those leaderboards, is there anywhere you can see club members outside of the top 5?

Not that I've found but I've sent an email suggesting it to the team at Strava along with options to select monthly and yearly time frames. Hopefully they're things that are fairly easily implemented and can be functioning in the near futre. Would be nice to have that ability before we start next years friendly comps, just upload once and have fit gits, commuting and climbing all sorted. If not then I guess we'd need events for each one set up like the KOM Challenge.

You'd think so. Once the data is loaded, querying it in any way should be easy. Sadly things seem to take ages to evolve at Stava so keep hassling them.

Yeah I agree I asked again on a question thread dated back to March 201,1 if they could add an option to select start of week as either Sunday & Monday.
The reply back was we have not looked into this as yet. :(

Whats the go with segments?

Norbs created one today on a section of road I have ridden many times and I don't show up on it :?

Yet when I create my own segment, norbs shows up on it. And the bugger was faster too :twisted: But only until tomorrow :D

It's obvious, Strava just doesn't like you, first you can't upload rides, then it wouldn't let you join KOM challenge, now it just doesn't want to acknowledge that you've ridden a segment, it's really because this is the one segment where you're faster than norbs and it doesn't want you to have the KOM :D

I actually made that segment last week when I did the 80k ride. Will keep an eye out. I passed a guy on a Pinarello today going up there. I will see if I can upload the video. :)



EDIT: Video as promised.

I have probably ridden it about 4 times since then. I think Shane is right :( except for the part about me being faster than you :D

At least you get to ride it in daylight norbs, I am normally there about 6am. Just in time to say hello to the early morning smoking patients out front of the hospital. :roll:

Have you got it sorted Lewy? I was wondering, when you ride it, do you go into the showground area? When I made the segment, it goes all the way into the showground surrounds. It stops where you can turn left and go to the main entrance.

I just figured it out after looking at your map. I will go through the showground in the morning.

I have given you a target for the one I created too :D
