That fine line between warmed up and worn out :D

I know it is possible to fake your GPS location on phones because one of my sons did it to his phone to catch different Pokemon

The thing that annoys me most is most of these the guys seem to actually be cyclist, but still do not remove a dodgy ride after being caught out. Even if it was an accident. How hard it is!
I did it once. Jumped in the car to home. Simple crop and all back to normal!

Why not just ride the bicycle over to the start of the ride, and then there is no worries about needing to turn off the GPS at the right time. I've had rides where I had to ride 50km just to get to the starting point.

I don't get how people forget to hit the stop button and save the ride. :?

In my case it was a MTB ride. Limited time, kids, soft off-road rubber, unsuitable bike and all that :)

So my 2nd KOM Defender report came back with about 8 rides that were definitely invalid (needed cropping).

But most significantly it says they are closing down as of 1 June due to strava data access changes.
