Strava, the great new cycling, running app. As good at it is there are a few bugs in it. You can log all your rides to you’re hearts content. I’ve done a few and you can get to a point where you think why bother.
Part of the problem is that there are too many worthless segments out there.
It’s about time we started putting Time Trial courses up on Strava rather than 500m PB,s. Only stipulation is that you start from a standing start at the designated point.
There are a fair few out there that don’t want to step up to the mark and be tested in an organised event. Just tick the private button on Strava and ride the Course as if it was an event.
Locally the event to do is : Northend 7.1. It is a club eventand would normally be ridden as a member or private trial.
In any event a Strava log of the same distance should be valid.
For those on the Wirral it’s one of the last TT courses on the Wirral, goes through Thornton Hough and finishes just before Benty Heath Lane.
Post ride refreshments would normally be at the newly thatched, “The Thatch”
otherwise called the Wheatsheaf.
Strava segment coming up.
