Follow a rider on Strava: Strava is built for cyclists to upload their GPS data so they can share and compare activities with their friends. Until today, really the only way you could keep up with the activities of people you knew on Strava was to visit each of their Strava home pages and check out what was new. Well, with today’s release, Strava is happy to announce a new capability which allows you to “follow” others. You can then see the activity feed of all the people you are following on one page. We notify you when someone starts following you and let you see a list of who is following you as well. You can choose to follow anyone in Strava but they may need to approve your request first depending on their privacy settings. Read more about this new feature on our support site: http://bit.ly/b2sxDh We plan to add more around the social aspects of using Strava in the very near future so please give following/follower a try and let us know what you think.
Upload by sending Strava an email: Today we also added the capability for you to get your data file into your Strava account by your gps file attached to an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is especially handy for iPhone/Android users because if they use a phone app that supports sharing of .gpx files by email, they can upload straight from their phone. To learn more how to upload by email, have a look at our support site: http://bit.ly/ab3Ho8
