i dont have strava but i thought it was all free.what sort of payment details were needed
You get extra features if you pay $
don't know if its a dodgy request though.
on Strava, there is ALWAYS someone faster than you and ALWAYS someone slower than you.
a balanced perspective helps when using it.
otherwise those reading this who are slower than you, hopefully aren't offended by the inference that they are crappier than crap.
PS. I don't think you are crap
if leaderboards based on speed are a reason for you not riding ........
your premium Strava subscription allows you to filter just your times under the tab "My Results", go into your Strava preferences and make it your default segment view.
Actually, one of the things I like on Strava is the suffer score - it seems representative of effort rather than speed/ability/athleticism. I'm not that flash on the bike but I know the one thing I can (generally) beat CLP in is the suffer score! Being less than brilliant means you have to put in more effort and you can see this in the suffer score which means if you go on a group ride with a whole pile of riders that are better than you, they may beat you on time but you'll generally be able to hold your head high and say "ah, but did you suffer as much as I did"! I'm a big believer that suffering counts for more (but I may be biased) and anyway, having your ride described as tough or epic is just awesome!
That's convinced me. I'm in.
If you call my riding crap youre paying me a compliment
