On June 14, city bike designer, Linus Bike, comments on Strava Cycling, a new cycling app that can be used by iOS and Android users.
According to an article published on ABCNews.com, a new cycling app, Strava Cycling, has been released for iOS and Android users and is also available on the Garmin Forerunner and Garmin Edge platforms. At no cost per download, Strava Cycling, created by Michael Horvath, is a social media app for cycling enthusiasts.
The app allows users to “find and track rides, analyze their progress and participate in challenges.” As users are cycling, they can also view a map of the route and monitor their elevation and speed. Once completed, they can upload their ride results to the Strava website to analyze their performance.
Users can also interact with other users of the app, which is what separates the app from others like it. They can follow other riders and their progress and compete in challenges. Currently, there is challenge provided by the app called “The Junedoggle,” that chooses a winner by whichever user accumulates the most rides in the month of June.
Even though the app is free, users also have an option of upgrading to the premium version of the app which allows them to analyze heart rate and provides them with training tools that help them better understand their own strengths and weaknesses over the course of a ride.
Jason Latty, a representative from Linus Bike, a city bike designer, thinks apps like Strava Cycling will revolutionize the sport. “It’s so cool to see that modern technology and social media can play such an active role in the sport of cycling. The cycling world is a tight community and this app allows users from all over the country to interact with one another.”
