Strava Subscription Cost Changed

If you have used Strava in the last day or so and then gone to check the leaderboard you will likely have noticed a BIG difference.

The Strava Subscription Cost and Free version has changed.

In the FREE VERSION :

  • You will no longer see yourself on a leaderboard if you finish outside the top 10
  • You will no longer be able to compare your segment times easily at least
  • Even looks like your Training Log has gone

Basically if you are a user of the Free version go an check it now and see whats changed.

The good news is they appear to have made the subscription model easier to understand but this HAS meant averaging the subscriptions so some may end up paying more.

Let me know what you think.

If you are looking for an alternative route planning and activity recording app, you coudl try Komoot?

CO2 vs Mini Pump

In my latest video I’ve used my expert knowledge and experience to deliver a no nonsense overview of a couple of CO2 adapters and how the use of such devices compare with a mini pump.

Be awesome if you head over to youtube and watch it and leave your comments there.

Big thanks!

take care

Here’s another one – about tyre sealant..

Forest of Dean ride with Pinned TV

Wow! I haven’t uploaded here since November 15th…  Maybe its time to knock the blog on the head. What do you think?  What would you like to see here?

Anyway – one of my more recent videos has got a great response on YouTube.

I think I got everything right – thumbnail, title, tags etc and it helped that those things mentioned/featured a successful MTB channel – Pinned TV

If you haven’t seen it yet – its a simple vlog from a day in the Forest of Dean on a large group ride with Pinned TV and Si & Oliver from Malverns Classic.

pinned capture

Massive thanks to Jim (Pinned TV) who, a week after I uploaded my video uploaded his and gave me shout out and link to my channel.

So – go an watch it – PLEASE subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already…

 

 

 

UK Drone Registration – November 2019

The 5th of November sparks (see what I did? Two puns in one!) a new era in the UK for drone users.

Today was the day you could register to be a drone “pilot” and the 30th of November is the day you must have done it by or you are breaking a new aviation “law”.

What is it? Well it simply registers every drone pilot and or flyer of drones and states that you are not allowed to fly unless you have completed an online test and as a drone owner you need to pay a sort of annual fee/tax of £9 to own an fly.

Why? To introduce some sort of structure into the growing market and give authorities the ability to build a picture of drone users demographically and to maybe try and root out people who are causing a stir at airports.

These rules are new to the UK but have been in place in countries like Canada for some months now.

Anyway – watch my video or click on some links if you are interested.
