I tend not to ever flag segments.
Was annoyed by one segment being deleted - someone created a euston road underpass segment which gifted me a kom. It was subsequently flagged. I don't think it should have been flagged as all you're doing is cycling along a straight road - was the flag because someone didn't like the idea of people going through the underpass?

Got to admit that underpass isn't nice. For some reason if there is not much traffic around cars tend to fly though there. Don't really go that was anymore! Euston Road is a pain to ride in rush hour!

First proper* KOM!

* it's not in any way a proper KOM, but I'll take it! (and certainly better than the few random ones I've had before)

Hurrumph.

The Walton on Thames to Parliament Square segment starts within 500m of my house and so if I want to put privacy on my home address I can't appear in the leader board for that segment. Bah! I'm in 4th.

For anybody familiar with Regents Park, i'm sure you will know that after 4/5 laps it becomes a little boring.

Why does the elevation vary with each lap?

When I first signed up to Strava and was experimenting, it said I was moving at an average of 7.2 km/h, even though I was lying in bed at the time...

Either satellite error, or someones nicked your bike.
What do you mean you think 64cm is a big frame?

Picked my target segment the other day (aim at really going for it on one segment per commute), gunned it, slight headwind but felt happy, got home and found the GPS hadn't synced until I'd got part way through.....Grrrrrrrrr

I did the same on Embankment yesterday morning only to find that Strava had stopped recording any data after Putney Bridge

Strava seems to have gained some popularity throughout 2012 :shock:

Jan 2012 base Mile Blast participants = 1,196
Jan 2013 base Mile Blast participants = 34,461

How do I delete a ride? I appear to have taken a KOM last week on Barnet hill. By 10 seconds. In full on commute mode while carrying a mucus monster. Probably into a head wind.


Edit. Thinking about it. Maybe I am just awesome.

Yeah, but you're still nailing it - kudos!
