STRAVA Premium?


I thought Strava was a fad. Well now...I was wrong. After a year of prodding from my buddies I gave in like a 13 year old boy taking his first drag. Been using (free iPhone app) ever since. Simply put Strava is brilliant. A most helpful tool in cycling. For example, when I started organizing the Saturday ride and blogging about cycling in Arkansas I started getting tons of follow notifications. The feedback I received from people is that they enjoy finding new routes and use my Strava feed to find them. That is pretty cool. And those segments...well...they have changed the way I ride. Not all the time, but if I have good legs and I know a segment is coming I'll give it a go. Not to mention some of the hilarious ride titles providing just a touch of entertainment. You ever get pissed when it fails or you forget to hit start? That's a symptom of being hooked! Whoa...like it or not Strava is a big a deal. What I want to know is...

Is Strava premium worth the coin and why?

Free is great, but I got premium just to support what I think rocks.

Somebody like you that can kom every hill in Arkansas, it might help.

Noah Singer said...

You'll want Premium. There is something coming and it's going to rock. Trust me.

Robin Grunnagle said...

Thanks Anonymous 1, Free is already awesome.

Thanks Anonymous 2, I agree it does rock and I should probably support it.

Thanks Gustavo, you think too highly of my climbing ability. I'm just another chubby kid.

Thanks Noah, I will keep my eyes open. Coming from a bike industry guru that's saying something.

Whoa, Hayes you are getting super tech savvy.

Cycling news reported Strava is trying to launch a feature on premium that gives you real-time info on who is riding your segment or loop while you are riding it too. That way you can connect during rides with those going after your segments. Pretty cool for linking up with a riding buddy on the fly when you thought you were due for a lonely solo ride. Could be a game changer.

Thanks Scott, I will keep my eyes peeled. I found myself thinking about mounting iPhone to my handlebars the other day. Not PRO I know but the phone is starting to be all-in-one on many levels in many parts of life. Why not a super computer mounted to the bars/stem?
