Alain Rumpf shares a story about how he and his soon-to-be wife have found riding friends through Strava in Switzerland.
You’ve pioneered new roads, put in the miles, and trained hard. Now, show the world what you’ve accomplished by foot and by bike. Premium members, now you can create your own personal heatmaps to visualize the ground you’ve covered around the world. It’s the perfect thing to share with friends.
We can only imagine what it takes to get to the Tour de France, let alone complete all of the stages and finish at the front of the peloton. In a high pressure race things change quickly; it takes incredible determination and resilience to hold one’s place. And as we saw with Ted King, suffering doesn’t always get you to the Champs Elysees.
