    I think its a ton of fun to know your personal ride times, and then to see if you moved up from your last standing in the "group" that rode it. I need to get a HR monitor and see what the suffer score is all about.

    While the "virtual racing" aspect is cool and all, i use Strata mainly as a way to map my rides, keep a diary of my ride history and to scope out new routes. Try the "Explore" feature and browse around the map or search by area. - it's a great way to do some initial recon on new trails in unfamiliar areas.

    LMAO!! Ride more, climb in heavier gears (big ring), and work on your cornering. You will get faster. Cheers!!

    The climbing in bigger gears is an incredible boost. As a personal challenge one day, I decided to do a segment that I regularly ride in my big ring rather than the small (2x10). I set a new PR and it didn't hurt any more than my normal runs. I'm contemplating a switch to 1x10 or 1x11 based on this.

    As for the original question... I'm a Strava'er. While I have a few KOMs, I'm not really competitive. I mostly use it for tracking my performance, elevation gains, and distance.

    Running a 1x10 or 1x9 is awesome. I run a 1x9 with a 34T Chain-ring on my 26 inch hard-tail. Works very well. I am building a 1x10 29er hard-tail. Absolutely the way to go. I also ride a 29er SS with a 32x16 set-up. Once your legs get used to the extra strength required, you will get faster and faster.

    With regard to downhill, the same theory applies. Run in the hardest gear and work the corners. Most of the speed is found in the exits and entrances of corners. That is where you make up time and increase your average speed.

    Once you get a nice cadence in a harder gear, stay in that gear. I tend not shift too often. Happy Riding!!!

    If you find a strava route you want to ride, paste the url into this site:

    Strava Export - Download GPX and TCX Files From Strava

    It will let you export the route and load it into google maps, your GPS, etc.

    We went riding in Redding Calif. last week so I just did a "Strava explore" for routes in the 25- 50 mile range. We loaded them into our GPS, and rode all the hidden single tracks the locals ride.

    My only beef with this is the idea that you are in a "race" when you're using it, and your trail etiquette was left at the trail head.

    Please keep in mind all trails are shared and to yield when you're supposed to. The world isn't your personal race course even if you happen to use Strava.

    Totally. I've been using Strava for a while now, and try to be nice, especially when hauling the mail down the trail. There is always next time!

    Side note, I went on a ride a couple days ago, and there were some real jerks in the Phils area. I think one of the 5 people coming down the trail slightly slowed down for me climbing, with not so much as a smile or kiss my a$$. I pretty much had to get out of everyones way. Almost time to just play chicken and see how good they are on the brakes.

    Such a good technique I have been doing this for a while and love it! So easy to get lost otherwise.

    I don't know your situation in detail, and I'm not recommending this ...

    But when I used to patrol in Colorado Springs on the trails, occasionally I would see a bike rider acting like this, i.e. going fast and expecting others to move out of the way.

    I found that if I put my bike sideways on the trail and stood behind it, they would stop. Then I had a chance to talk to them and ask how their day was going.

    Note: this was on Cross Country trails where you could expect traffic either direction, and I was on official patrol at the time ...

    YMMV.

    Hardtail - Banshee Viento 26 inch... It was a good run. Lot's of traffic though. My time could have been faster. And, I was polite to the uphill riders. Some of the riders out there are just being plain dumb. I.e. Riding with their head down and not looking ahead, In wide sections still expecting you to get off your bike to wait for them, etc....

    I dont think any of us our perfect... but there have been sometimes where I am on the climb thinking that a few guys will at least get out of the way and I have to go off trail so nobody gets hurt, I dont really think about it much.... I think we have all done it, when I do it, it is really an accident, I just dont see the person I try and smile or wave or something, or even say sorry haha.

    Exactly. PLENTY of times I have not seen someone till last min, but I always at least make an effort to slow down, smile, and very loudly say sorry have a nice day!

    The other day while I was climbing, I would slow to pretty much stopped, as the jackasses zoomed by. I did not pull over early either, waiting to see what they would do. I would have been totally fine if I would have got one thank you, smile, or have a nice day or something!

    Don't get me wrong, MOST of the time people are very nice.

    I'm going to start mobbing the Hardtail more. Might look at a 29'er HT(oh god did I just say that!)

    My rear shock went flat yesterday, and I was SHOCK how much more I was standing and cranking without the frame-bob. SO much more power to the ground.

    Amazingly nice, and it seems most people know to tell you if any more are coming. I have seen a few glazed over blank faces really hauling though,,,,I wonder if they were racing Strava. It seems that going for time downhill on a two way trail is not something you would not want to do much of.

    My wife and I knew Steve Larsen. He was always passing us from behind (imagine that!) and always had time to slow down and chat before returning to his workout.

    Agree'd... I try to pick times of day/week, where there is not many people on the trails, if I want to go fast.

    Trails like Whoops and Upper Tiddlywinks are great though, being one way.

    Bombing down two way single track is a recipe for disaster especially on lower Phils where many kids are riding with their parents. But I see it on the upper trails too. I was climbing up to HP and some dude comes bombing down at mach speed and makes no attempt to slow. I know he saw me and had plenty of time to slow down but I had to move to avoid a collision.

    ^ This is what I'm talking about. We've all seen it. I thought the original intent of Strava was to compare climbing times on set routes, such as Lava lake to the top junction.

    Honestly this "type" of behavior (i.e. failure to even acknowledge others' presence on the trails) WILL lead to many more one-way trail designations whether anyone likes that or not. How many "bad" encounters have occurred on Whoops since the time that was designated one-way?

    Many. They just were encounters with a tree. The trees usually win.

    People are always going to want to go fast. Strava or not. I hear what you are saying, but no way to control it. Look, AND listen, especially coming up to a blind turn. One reason wearing ear phones on single track has never been a good idea IMO.

    I really don't think Strava has anything to do with people being jerks, or going fast. I know even when I am not recording my ride, I'm still trying to be a better rider, which entails pushing the limits a bit.

    As the trails get more popular, maybe more one-way trails would be a good idea.

    It's not the "fast" part. It's the disrespect of not slowing down(enough) and being rude. If people are going in two directions on a trail wide enough for one rider, someone HAD to yield no matter what the speed.

    If you are respectful, I don't see how the speed matters.

    IIMBA Guidelines

    Don't people remember the IMBA guideline of yielding to the uphill rider?

    Yield Appropriately: Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill-only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.

    Well I don't really go that fast but I do ride with ear buds, however I constantly scan ahead of me and don't get lost in the music. It does motivate me though. As I pass by folks I usually let them know I'm a solo and always yield to the uphill rider unless of course they stop first. A lot of this stuff is just common sense.

    +1 I've noticed a definite dearth of manners (and friendliness) riding at Phil's over the past year. A lot of the riders just seem put out, period. At first I thought it might be that the flatter terrain attracted all the dirt roadies but Strava makes more sense. Someone on the Washington forum coined the name "Stravasses" for some of these riders. You know, the ones who would mow down a gaggle of nuns and puppies to knock a second off their time. I will say that I've met some really nice people riding at Phil's but they've been the minority. Maybe I need to get out there mid-week.

    end rant.

    I think more than anything, is that there are more out of towners, and new riders, that need to learn the process in town, especially on the weekends. I don't think using an online GPS tracking program turns a perfectly nice person into a jerk.

    Agreed, but I believe that "smart" phones do turn people into something I do not appreciate at all. Be here now... BTW, there is a funny thread on Drunkcyclist concerning this very topic.

    Good question. Far too many downhill riders on the lowers trails don't yield.

    Part what comes with technology these days I guess... Watched a lady yesterday staring down, I would assume texting, drive all the way through an intersection without looking up, and BARELY miss the center divider. Part of life these days, but there is not much being done about it.

    I think there is confusion with it too. Look how both of you just worded what you said. Could imply that the uphill or downhill rider should yield. Could be confusing to some new riders. Just saying..... I think when I moved to Bend I second guessed it for a day or two.

    Should word that the rider climbing has the right of way, or something.

    And to add to this, some parts of the Bend trails are so flat, both people could feel they are in the right of way.

    If both people would just say "Hi have a nice ride, thanks, sorry" or even just shoot a smile, I think most of the time all is just fine. It's just the stone face look the other way jerks making the sport look bad.

    Going fast is part of the thrill of riding for many. Strava or not.

    I don't see what is confusing about "uphill riders have the right of way" or "downhill riders must yield".

    If you are climbing, your "position" is downhill. If descending, your position is "uphill". It's not worded to imply your position, or direction.

    Plain old common sense should make it obvious that the person climbing has the right of way. Is it easier to get started from a dead stop if you are going up or down the hill.

    The IMBA guideline is very clear.

    Yield Appropriately: Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill-only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.
