Yesterday I was a bit lazy in my comment about Strava. Let me elaborate a little.
I originally steered clear of Strava for 2 reasons – I am not very competitive and I am not very fast. I rejected Strava and its users. This isn’t fair and my opinion of Strava has changed.
Since my trip to France I realised it can help me. By pushing myself to become fitter and a better hill climber, it will creative a competitive edge. This in turn should push me further and harder to improve my fitness and riding ability.
Competing against my own times and the times of the others that ride my local trails will now provide me with extra incentive and reason to ride.
Watch this space, and as soon as my Strava stats are worthwhile sharing 🙂 I will embedded a widget on the blog for all to see…
