Not sure if anyone has used the Strava.com website, but it's quite addictive. You can upload rides from any GPS tracker, and create segments from that ride which other riders may have completed before. You then get put in a league table. It's pretty addictive and you can find yourself doing a ride just to 'strava' a hill to improve your time.

Take a look at the website....

www.strava.com

or one of my rides....

Yep, I'm very much a Strava fan, although all the segments I've created have resulted in me being a long way down the list after a few more join in :oops:

One from a recent Sherwood pines trip http://app.strava.com/rides/5293450


We could create a Retrobike group on there 8) Ah I see there is already a group, joined!

Available on Android and Garmin, anything you can record a route on. I use a Garmin 500 but my old Forerunner 201 would work

Remember to turn your Garmin/whatever off/on ½ a mile away from your door as it leads potential scum to your bike collection. :evil:
