STRAVA R599/year or R109/month,


We all use it – maybe it’s time to start paying for it! In the absence of traditiona­l events during lockdown, Strava became the go-to timing method for all sorts of alternativ­e races.

The data you get is simply extraordin­ary. Put your hand up if you sit for ages after your ride, analysing every metric and segment.

Strava recently changed their subscripti­on model, removing much of the functional­ity we were accustomed to getting for free. With a premium subscripti­on you get access to everything, include the coolest feature of them all – the leaderboar­d, where you can see how fast you are in relation to your friends.

You can also build your own routes and use the ‘matched ride’ feature, which allows you to compare yourself to others on the same segment, showing exactly where they’re stronger or weaker than you.
