Strava is a free site that makes fitness a social experience, providing motivation and camaraderie. It is a place where you can keep track of your rides (either with your smart phone, a garmin or by manually putting in your miles). Several of our club members use the site to compare their rides with others and to see what rides other people are doing. A great place to see how your riding is improving.
