About Strava

Cycling Tips has a great interview with Michael Horvath, the CEO and Founder of Strava.  If you’ve been around me at all you know I love Strava and use it passionately to track and share my rides as well as my (less frequent) runs.

Strava very smartly filled the hole left by Nike+ for cycling though took it up a notch as well given the upper end athletic focus.  The somewhat recent addition of running makes it ideal for the multi-sport athlete and the social features and data viz make it habit forming.   Just about everyone I ride with uses it and speaks Strava as well.  I recommend the interview and of course the service as well.

    What kind of computer do you use, and are you happy with it? I’m thinking of switcing my Cat Eye for a Garmin Edge 500.

    I have the Garmin Edge 500 which was an upgrade from the 305.  It’s very nice … small and works great.  I debated the 800 but really don’t need turn by turn directions though the mapping is much better on the more expensive unit.  You get a pencil line breadcrumb thing on the 500 … but I generally don’t run courses as much as just scan my data anyway.
