    I think I'm officially a Strava$shole

    I started using it a few months ago. Now that I'm riding again after that broken clavicle, I've been religiously uploading all my rides to Strava. Going out of my way to hunt segments, even. And when I did that tonight, I ended up third overall on the segment. Tomorrow I'm going to go out and try to get the KOM. One of the guys above me on the leaderboard lives far away, so he can't defend his time. Specifically trying to best my friends' best rides on segments. There's more, too, it just isn't apparent at the moment.

    But it's alright. I was already an a$$hole before Strava, so I like to think that I've simply joined a community of like-minded people. Strava on!
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    What is this Strava you speak of?

    And KOMs? WTF are those?
    Do you get rep for them?

    KOMs are like rep, but they matter more.

    Re: I think I'm officially a Strava$shole

    I used to ride around aimlessly thru the woods, with no purpose. No direction.

    Then I found Strava. Or maybe Strava found me. It was fate. My birth rite. My destiny.

    Now I am a king. I ride my wheeled throne through my kingdom. Sometimes I wave to the peasants as I pass. The womens wait in line, begging for their share of my royal seed.

    I already ride like a strava*******, convinced i am super fast and giving chase to any "rabbits" i see on the trails ahead of me. I refuse to upload my garmin logs though... i want to continue pretending i AM the fastest on my trails.

    Where is the kudos button?

    I'll admit I love strava. I'm a segment whore. The newsfeed for riding groups is great. I find it motivating.

    Not that it effects the end game, but don't think strava makes someone an @sshole, it just brings it out more often in people, and brings people like that out more often.

    ^Those aren't particularly big boobies, though. Especially by OC standards.

    These poor, misunderstood creatures get a bad rap. Clearly they're just trying to get the word out.

    What is the fastest way to tell the most people about this life changing app? Ride as fast as possible and scream as loud as possible.

    They do the Lord's work, saving people from half lived lives. Life without Strava is hardly worth living.
