    OMG he is obsessed

    OK took steve out for his birthday meal and all he talked about after saying how great I am for buying him a bike (wonderful wife and all that) is strava, I mean he is obsessed with beating people , he went out at 6am on the roadie to beat people got back at 8ish and at 9am was out again on the mountain bike having to beat other people, there is being competitive and being obsessed !!!!!!

    LOL wow , cant say as I have done that yet , don't mean to bust his bubble but I did a few rides using my Phone on Strava and my Garmin and when both results were on Strava they were not very consistent , so I'm assuming some of the times may well be a little exaggerated with some peoples phones ..

    Yes you are great and hes lucky to have you .. Oh Happy Birthday Bud :P

    @MTBwidow: Look after him, he is a prince amongst men. He is a husband to be prized. Hell's bells, he thanked you, he appreciates you, and he tells others. What more could you possibly need?

    Try googling 'Strava' and translating it into Greek!
    Ride hard but avoid the hikers

    I had my first go with it today and must admit its quite interesting to see how you stack up against other riders. For me it'll also be a handy tool to see if I'm actually getting any fitter now I'm riding to work.

    That's pretty much how I use it... I'm just pleased I don't have to share any stretch of rides where hobo goes though!

    I'm getting a new GPS and will be starting up on Strava to see how I compare to the nutters

    Should be interesting to do the same routes on different steeds and see how they compare.

    I'm also saving for a GPS watch, I'm fancying a Bryton cardio 35. It's properly waterproof which is rare for the price....

    You should be able to upload your etrex gpx files in the mean time.
