The guys I know that are off hunting KOMs on strava certainly know they're 'racing.'

Why do so many people create segments that span traffic lights. This is just a waste of time and clutters the data. I know you can hide segments but there are so many stupid ones now. I understand that longer segments may have no option. I have only created 1 segment and use this 65km obscure loop in the hills to track my own progress. Mark


Last weekend I took the Garmin unit along on a 120 mile motorcycle ride, just to get an idea where this route took us. It wasn't surprising that some of it happened to go through Strava segments, but what surprised me were the segments themselves. One of them seemed to go just from one stoplight to the next. Another started in a parking lot, turned right at a bridge, then ended without any apparent reason. There were other weird ones as well. Why would someone create arbitrary, meaningless segments like that?



I can't figure out if you're being obtuse or not....

That wasn't directed to you, personally. Unfortunately, you took it that way.

This thread has taken on a way too serious vibe, since the Strava discussions started (reminds me of slowtwitch). Just enjoy bicycles and ride 'em.

I took that list to be the total opposite of being serious - it's just a really funny read.

Hey look..it's Friday

It is very funny! My back decided to take a couple day vacation this week, after the Tuesday ride. I am finally almost standing upright, and looking forward to 50 or so tomorrow... I might even go for an M/C ride.
Have a good weekend people...
