Strava gives you the platform to compare and compete using your ride GPS data. It’s fun, it’s motivating and, today we introduced Strava achievement awards — a new way for you to showcase when you have something to talk about.
You will see Achievement icons on ride pages that contain segments where you have done especially well. We highlight two kinds of achievements for you. PR achievement awards (trophy cups) indicate efforts on segments which are among your personal best — they compare you to you. Overall achievement awards (medals) showcase efforts on segments in the top 5 of a KOM or QOM leaderboard — they compare you to everyone on Strava who has ridden that segment. Here’s another example of both kinds of achievement awards on a recent ride near Syndey, Australia.
While we hope this encourages you to get out and ride so you can grab some achievement awards, all your past rides have been updated with awards of note as well.
