    Do you Strava?

    Hands up who here has been sucked in by the Strava phenomenon?

    Got any good rides to share?

    Nah, looks much like Endomondo which I've been using for a year or so.

    I want to use endomondo, but it doesn't work with the heart rate belts i have here (Zephyr Bioharnesses) so i'm using Sports Tracker Pro. I may save and upload the .gpx files, but it all seems like hassle.

    Endomondo, apparently I have a Strava account as I've had requests from Strava, I didn't set it up though.

    Not familiar with Endomondo, does it do 'segments' like Strava? That's the killer app part of its offering, and why it has become so popular. Addictive even

    Yup often lurking around the Surrey Hills. Usually at the bus shelter scoffing pork and leek rolls!

    Yep, you can look at each mile or 'lap' as it is called on Endomondo.

    That sounds a little different to the ability to set 'segments' in Strava. It could be a climb, a decent, a short section of road between traffic lights, laps of a course etc

    I've not really explored what can and can't be done really. Just finding my feet again on the bike at present.

    Best to ignore stuff like endomondo and strava then MLR, and just enjoy being out on your bike and not worrying about how fast you're going or how far you're riding, easy to get distracted!

    I just find it interesting afterwards, the blackberry is in a saddle bag out of the way. I don't take any notice of it during the ride.

    I've been using Strava for about a month now and can see it becoming very addictive, very quickly...
