Strava Tip

Lord Garmin (of course), Bushy and Sneaky Pete, have signed up to Strava and become members of the M1Cycles club on the site and there's sure to be more; I'm sure there's more M1 Garmin (or similar) users aroun.
Remember to join the KOM competition when you sign up and see how many k's of climbing we can add up to for the year.
Tip #1
Once signed in, you'll see your name at the top of the page, there's a drop down from there. Click on 'Settings' in the drop down and then 'Privacy' when the page opens. Be sure to set it so that you truncate your rides around home and work etc, you can have more than one address. Otherwise there'll be people turning up at all hours wanting to get you out of bed to go for a roll. It's a handy little feature, as we all like to log k's from the time we get on the bike; it still records the whole ride stats, just doesn't show the track around the 'truncation'.
