Man the latest Strava app. update is driving me bonkers. It's taken ages to get it download rides, profiles etc. Even when at home in the wifi. Anyone else having issues? By the way I'm using an iPhone 4.

It's all good. I actually had a look at the STRAVA web page. It's recommended to delete the app. and reinstall. Did that and now everything is back to normal.

I was aiming for over 500km this month myself, but will miss it by 60km due the off the other night. I only signed up for the May Massive near the end of may though. Something tells me not to sign up for the challenges, because whenever I do, something happens to me. :lol: Or I could go and do 60km tonight on my other bike with a bandaged up knee. :D I think I've still got the rest of the evening to finish it.

The latest Strava app looks good and I like the new features. But I use a Garmin so I don't require the app to do the uploads, I do those on a computer.

don't let me stop you - my crashes were both self induced.

Been off the bike for weeks with hip/leg/sciatica issues. :( Managed 474km for the month (down from 1600 in April) and worryingly am still not fixed. No doubt my fitness will be pathetic by the time I finally get going again. SO depressing... :cry:

Haha. I feel like putting the lights on the flat bar and going out for a quick 18km ride to make it an even 200km difference over second place :lol: :lol:

Good work on the 1000km. Plenty of hills to climb up there.

Its interesting to note that 4 of the people in the top 10 for the strava group are from Brisbane. Besides this week the weather has been great here :)

Sucks to hear about that mate. I can't stand it when I'm off the bike for a couple days as it seems like such a waste of a day haha. You'll feel like that after the first couple rides but then it starts coming back and the enjoyment goes back up.

Thanks mate, am looking forward to the first ride even if it's slow. Just don't know when it might be- don't seem to be improving despite physio (and MRI confirming no structural problems), stretching and rest... Kinda hard to stay optimistic.

Chin up there. :) One of my colleagues at work had some similar sounding issues to you. They ended up giving him an injection into the back with something that had him extreme pain for the next few days (so they stuck him on heavy painkillers) and then slowly it seems to be working. He can sit down and work without pain.

Apart from that, I'll blame the dark and the cold. I miss the summer weather - those long evenings with great light. :mrgreen: I used to be doing a lot more kms in a week than I do now.

Free month of premium offered this morning, got to put in your CC details though. I don't really think premium is worth it if you don't use power, but I guess we'll see how it goes.

the only thing I really like is the HR zones - it tells you how long you spent in each zone....

My May wasn't much either, first month for this year that I didn't ride over 1000k's....racing at BotB took its toll :|

Finished May with 920.

Another month where Jason has increased his lead :evil:

A month with 8 days where I'd commute but couldn't (6 because of my first crash - doctors orders and 2 for honourable reasons - looking after the sick family)
just think what it could have been.....

Lukeyboy...your lucky I had more days off in May than I wanted, otherwise you may have had to work a little bit harder than you did...plus I dont ride weekends and if I do it is a rare occurrence

I hope you didnt go and ride that 18 k's...I was late in putting in my last commute :)
