Uploading and comparing files/riding data is fine.
There are plenty of other ways then just strava to do this.
Thats not the issue.
The issue is that it promotes racing on public roads.
It promotes cyclists to take more risks.
They promote it.
That i see as a concern.
Really? In the group I ride with, when anybody puts the hammer down it's on! Should they be regulated too?
The nice thing about road cycling is that you can safely race on a public road, without breaking any laws, with or without Strava.
Some people will never cease looking for other to blame.
