    MTBR FatBike Forum Strava page

    Were not racing anyone, we live all over the world and most of us will never meet.

    Ive created a page on Strava called MTBR FatBike Forum for any of you's who want to join and share your rides.

    I know a few on here are anti-strava but i only use it to log rides, share rides and compare my fatbike times to the mortals on carbon XX1 XC bikes.

    Its nice to see where people ride, more and more of us have GPS, even the global fatbike day can benefit from this.

    Its ok to say what you are doing, this can let us share.

    You dont even need a GPS, an iphone or android app can upload here.

    I just started using Strava and I like it. When I joined this group it imported all of my rides including the road and mountain rides. Is that an issue? I don't know if there is a way to prevent that. If you are looking for fat bike rides only for this group and I can't figure out how to separate them let me know.

    You can add your various bikes to Strava and indicate which one was used for which ride.

    I have done that. Just wondering if I can or should allow only the fat bike rides to be imported to the group?

    Absolutely not, all your rides are welcome.

    When someone clicks on the ride, the bike you rode will be displayed.... regardless whether you ride Road, MTB, Fat, CX... ect we get to see your rides.

    I've never used Strava. I use a Garmin and upload nearly all of my activities on Garmin Connect but it will be a first using Strava.

    I think it's funny that you want to do this. I have friends that don't even allow me to see their ride information. I don't get it. I might would understand a Lance Armstrong type not wanting others to see what he does, but for normal people it doesn't seem like it matters.

    Ya there is. If you can export a nav file, strava can import it. I used to use Sports Tracker and was able to import almost all my rides.

    My first time using Strava is joining this fat bike group/club. I did a 110 mile road ride this past weekend and for a popular 20 mile road bike stretch north of town, I have the second best time with an average speed of 18.8 mph, on the 50 pound FAT BIKE.

    strava in a fatbike context would be how slow you can go without falling over?

    Strava needs to calculate the number of logs I roll over on the beach per ride

    I am in. I use Strava and RWGPS. I like Strava for the humility and RWGPS for most everything else. The metrics and the maps are much better on RWGPS for my style.

    Select the "export" tab when you are viewing one of your Garmin Connect activities, and save it as a TCX file to your computer. Now log on to Strava, click on the "upload" button, and select "from file". Pretty easy to do.

    You cant, unless you only upload fatbike rides. When you click on the ride you have just done it tell's you what bike was used.

    I usually put "fat" in the description somewhere.

    Here:

    Strava Segment | Stuck in the middle...of the lake

    Thought I'd share my fatbike "specific" segment. We did this ride on January 1st, 2013. The lake was frozen over and had about 2 inches of snow on top. So, I made a segment in the middle of the lake. Try to take that KOM *****es!

    In. I have two bikes and when I upload the files, I just edit to put which bike I ride. My default is my fat bike.

    I've had that same experience. Although with all the waves that I seem to encounter, maybe the map is more accurate than I thought.

    I get to create all of my own segments. If there have been other Fatbikers along the beach here for the last 8 years, and I don't think there have been, they don't use Strava.

    Well ozzy, it looks like the rest of the fat bikers are anti Strava or their rides are secret.

    I'm sure there are Strava haters out there but I would say that it seems to me quite a large number of people chose to participate in the group. I think it is kind of impressive actually in that of all the people I ride with barely 10 percent even use a GPS device and of those only half even know what Strava is much less use it. Having said that I think Ozzy got a pretty good response.

    Yes an awesome response, 89 members !!! I only know who a handful are ^ including you's 2

    Just going to have a play next ride as i believe if you have telephone coverage you can geotag/geolocate the pictures taken on instagram (using a smartphone) which automatically upload to strava if taken between the ride starting and ride ending....meaning instead of just having pictures attached to a ride, they actually appear as small thumbnails exactly where they were taken on the ride map.
    So when you look at someones ride map on strava, you click on the small thumbnail picture and see the ride captured photo.

    Definately a cool idea !

    I too think it's strange that so few people use a gps device.

    Of course that kind of thinking got everyone mad at me in another thread when talking about a gal who kept riding even though she was lost, hit her head, and had to be found and rescued even though she had a gps and a spot device at home. Everyone kept saying that she was an experienced rider riding in an area she was familiar with and she had a map that she used to cover up with. (I was thinking if I had a map that I didn't know how to read, I'd use it to start a fire.)

    Yes, a pretty good response though. Now if only some "Billy" dude would ride less so the rest of us don't feel so pressured.

    Says the man who rode further and longer than i did.... Its good riding weather here at mo, need to take advantage

    I held out as long as i could, refused to use a GPS or Strava... the last stand ! Nearly everyone else had a garmin/bryton on their bike.

    I eventually broke down as i wanted the mapping ability of the Garmin 810.

    I must say I am very impressed with the distance and especially the amount of ascent the guys at the top of the leader board are putting in each week. when I first started using Strava a few weeks ago one thing that impressed me was the cumulative ascent data. At the time mine was 60,000'+ for the year. Last week the guy at the top of the leader board did 19,000'+ in one week. Wow!

    Our weather has been the pits. I don't ever remember getting the amount of moisture we are getting this fall. I started on a long ride last Sunday and had to turn around after only 20 some miles because I had ridden into a snow storm the entire way. I was soaking wet and pretty cold.

    Last week the guy at the top of the leader board did 19,000'+ in one week.
    Yeah, he's a young guy and small in stature, probably won't have knee issues ever.

    I don't suppose you've noticed that four of the nine leaderboard spots last week were from Laramie, Wyoming? And if I could get the guy I ride with to buy a Garmin, six of the nine spots would have been taken.

    I should be riding today but I am visiting my brother in the hospital instead.

    That's pretty cool!

    I'm from upstate NY and I don't even know if there any other New Yorkers on the leader board much less in the top 10. Although a guy I know is on a trip riding his fat bike 1,600 miles over the next 3 weeks. If he was on here that would probably put him in the top 10, maybe even #1 in distance for the next couple of weeks I expect.

    I'm picking up my fatty tonight! I've jumped into the group. Looking forward to seeing the rides.




    For the garmin users, look at this tool
    CopyMySports - Automatically copy Garmin Connect activities to RunKeeper, Strava and MapMyFitness

    It automatically copies the rides from connect to strava. You don't have to do a thing.

    Here is another tool that is far more robust for moving the activities from different websites to other websites.
    SyncMetrics
    At the moment, Garmin isn't synchronizing so you might have to use the Copymysports option for now.

    If the leaders start logging many more miles, I might be looking for a way to automatically log miles from the odometer of my vehicle.

    I should go out for a ride but it's so damn windy today and my clownshoes seem to grab all the air when its a cross or head wind that I feel, perhaps, sitting inside reading about people riding their bikes is a better idea!

    It would be nice to ride only with a tailwind all the time.

    Did my first Fatty Ride....it's on my feed. I think 9.6 miles of pure muddy fun! These bikes are amazing. Did a short little ride today on my Lynskey 29er.....it felt like a toy, and very nervous....Love the Fatty.

    So, last weeks leader in the climbing category did 22,359', and the leader in the distance category did 244.7 miles, in one week. Holy crap! 104 participants now, that's cool.

    All of those 244.7 miles I did on my 50 pound (with gear) Moonlander. The climbing leader made himself sick doing his trips up the interstate on his cross bike. To do more climbing than him, I'll probably need to go by his house and flatten his tires every day.

    Well done alphazz... ive been google mapping your rides AND many other members. Just makes me appreciate how big this planet actually is. I try to imagine many of the rides with snow where "snow" or similar has been mentioned in the title, otherwise it looks like luscious green countryside.

    The IMBA "take it to the trails" challenge starts on the 2nd Nov... how many here are going for the 5000m climbing in 9 days ?

    Well, my big miles are probably done for the year so you guys can have the leadersboard. Strava doesn't measure winter riding in Wyoming and I woke up to more winter today (so much for my big ride plans for the day). After changing my rear tire to Lou, I rode hard for 2.5 hours, at 2 psi in the tubeless Lou so that I could ride instead of walking, and made it 7 miles.

    Exciting picture. What do you mean Strava does not measure winter riding? Your average will drop but it still counts. Maybe we can figure a handicap formula for snow depth and consistency.

    Cheers,

    2 PSI tubeless, nice!

    I ride in a sandy bog most of the time on my fat bike, but that is changing a little. And I ride a road bike and a touring bike and a full susser 26". They all go into one strava pot. So I just look at time spent riding, not miles or even lowest times.

    I had about 250 fat bike miles last week. Riding in this snow I'll be hard pressed to get more than 50 unless I ride in small well packed circles.

    I love dirt but would happily take 50 snow miles instead of 250 dirt miles.

    Well, I enjoy the snow a lot, but I do enjoy the exploring as well.

    I packed a loop tonight at Gowdy if you're bored.
    I'm not a huge fan of Gowdy. I know, that makes me weird in many people's eyes. I do ride there when my son wants to ride because he likes it but other than that, I seldom do.

    I was disappointed this morning because I had a really big ride planned for the day, that I've never done, on a trail that won't be rideable until next summer now. It would have been about 160 miles going down into Colorado and back.

    We don't have snow yet (in this part of the state, they have had it up north already though) but it's only a matter of time. Once that starts I will be lucky to average 25 miles per week. Not really sure though as I have never been able to ride in the winter before. I bought my first fat bike in the spring and did a couple snow rides with it. I have had a ball riding it all summer. Not really a fan of winter but maybe that will change. Winter for Ozzy probably doesn't mean a serious decline in mileage as it will for some of the rest of us?

    Im downunder, so being upside down we are coming into summer

    Its ride-able here all year round, i have never seen snow or ice here.

    Spring and Autumn are really good months for riding as its blue skies from one side to the other and low 20's.... perfect riding weather. Summer is a bit different, we can have weeks of over 35 degC and days over 40 deg C.
    We would ride more early mornings or nightrides in the summer when it gets stinking hot.

    That's when its perfect time to pull out the fatty for a cruise down the sand.... a good view too.

    122 members and between 80-90 members posting at least 1 ride a week... some of them just crack out a 100 miler in one go !!!

    Very interesting to see where we are riding, i just wish the google map displayed the correct weather, eg Snow instead of nice green pastures.

    Here's the blog widget, works here sometimes (try refresh page is it doesnt show), this it the live total for the week and updates every time someone posts a ride.

    <iframe height="160" width="400" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" scrolling="no" src="http://www.strava.com/clubs/mtbrfatbikeforum/latest-rides/cf26b65c62a71d9786be88856596990d1df3fe46?show_ride s=false"></iframe>

    My preferences are set to Km/m, if you want miles/feet then someone needs to grab one from the main page.

    Click on the orange bar on the widget and then on the main page, click on "share Fatbike forum rides" for the embed codes.

    This was my introduction to strava, and while I don't plan on competing for segments it's fun to see distance/speed/location data!

    I mentioned this a few pages ago, thought i would clarify on it.

    If anyone owns a smart phone (prob everyone now)

    Download the free app called "Instagram", its a photo app that people use for documenting every meal they eat and breath they take... straight to facebook or twitter... lets not go there.

    If you have this app loaded, you can attach it to your Strava account. So once you press start on your phone, Garmin, Bryton ect... there is a time stamp, so say i started at 3pm and finished at 5pm. EVERY photo taken using instagram from 2:50pm to 5:10pm will automatically appear on the strava ride page below your ride.

    Its a simple process and all you have to do is stop for a few seconds, snap 1 pic and it shows exactly what your ride was like, could be the highest point on your ride, could be a snowy or sandy pic or could be a famous landmark.

    When you click on the little thumbnail the picture expands and speaks a 1000 words.

    Huh, I was wondering how people were uploading pictures. Is it really necessary to install another app? I would have assumed that the regular camera feature should be able to geotag photos.

    For now, they are pulling an instagram feed. Perhaps other options will be available in the future. For now, go with instagram. There is lots of nice bike porn on instagram too. You can search by hashtages #cycling is good. You can go here to get a taste for what's available.

    I only have about 5 downloaded apps on my phone, there's no games or anything on it.

    A countdown app that counts down the days to events, Strava, Instagram, a tide time table app (for beach rides) and the GoPro app.... that's it so putting instagram on there to get some ride pics up was worth it.

    I've never looked at instagram Heyyall, might have a browse someday if i get some time

    He'd chime in but I think he is out riding another 60 miles. The temps will be about 2 degrees Celsius today, above freezing

    BTW everyone... have a browse through the rides on the forum and give "KUDOS" to the guys who are pulling out good rides.... some of these are under 10km with zero elevation but as we are fatbikers we all appreciate that riding on snow or sand is harder than MTB rides and many times harder then road rides.

    Well done to everyone, i enjoy looking at your rides.
