Cyclists and runners all over the world love using Strava. Aside from tracking rides and runs, using your smartphone, the app integrates with lots of other services so you can track your performance and compare it with your friends and peers regardless of what gear they use.
One of Strava’s great features is the ability to define a segment – a portion of your route – that might be covered by other athletes. Strava has updated their app so you can get real-time feedback on how you’re tracking on a segment.
In a recent blog post, Strava decribed how this feature works.
As you ride through a defined segment, you’ll see a display that puts you in a simulated race so you can track yourself against peers and your own past performances on that segment.
Of course, you’ll been a decent bike mount for your phone – or you could make your own mount.
