The focus on STRAVA is not on posting cool pictures like on instagram or on capturing a moment like on facebook. It’s about sharing activities. You can track your ride, your run or whatever with the app and upload it on STRAVA. You can see, like and comment the activities of friends and people you follow. It’s not about sharing anything, it’s about sharing what we all love. Our sports activities.
Introducing: STRAVA Segments
Of course sports is also about competition. Being faster than your friends, but also being faster than yourself one week, month or year ago. Probably the coolest thing on STRAVA are the segments. They are short parts of your track where you can compare your time with everybody else who has been on this track before and uploaded it to STRAVA. Lot’s of segments are climbs up a mountain or sprints on a flat raod. The fastest one is called King of the Mountain (KOM) and Queen of the Mountain (QOM). Who doesn’t want to be faster every time? And who doesn’t want to be faster than his friends? What a great motivation to go out again and train more.
Introducing: STRAVA Challenges
But that’s not the only challenge on STRAVA. Actually there are so called “Challenges”. “How many kilometers can you cycle in a certain month?” Or “How many meters of elevation can climb?” are two classic challenges, which are mostly available every month. It’s always great to see that thousands of people every month join these challenges to motivate themselves.
To show some impressions of the the rides and run it is also possible to upload a few pictures within the activity. “Look how muddy it was today”. This includes a story within the activity. Moments you really want to share. Sports is our passion and we want to share, read and speak about memorable moments.
