Strava cycles.

Tested it this morning on my daily commute Pantmawr to Penarth

Not in a particular rush

8.6 miles
37 mins
13.9 average speed
196 elevation gain

I am going to enjoy this...lbs has some local loops to beat :D

Been using Endomondo and was under the impression it was the best app for biking?

i use endomondo too (for years now), looked at strava downloaded it as well also mapmy ride, runkeeper, as many as I could find, but still liek endomondo the most.

maybe I didn't fiddle enough, but the others don't display enough stuff for me (with my phone being in my pocket, having this displayed real time is clearly important...)

I use Endomundo too. Strava is ok but more aimed at gnarly dudes.

Perhaps we could start our own Endonundo group?

Strava is good just wait a mile before turning it on or it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out where you live and your commuting patterns/unguarded bikes in the shed type scenario. Ive heard of people targeting road clubs websites finding threads just like this one and soon enough bikes start to go missing the police are aware apparently of this new type of crime and if they are that means its gonna be big.
Sorry for the public announcement strava and map my ride both very good apps :D
