GPS feed. I have a Garmin GPS, but you can use a smartphone app. I like to use Strava. One reason is it lets you hide actual start and finish points on the Web. (Helps prevent bike theft). I recommend that if you choose to show ride data, don't show your actual home or work locations.

Fat Old Guy On Bike. There is a trend here. I would be really self conscious about it if it weren't for the fact that there are so many of us Clydesdale's out there.

i love strava too and i like the provacy setting. my only complain is thatit does not have a mapping tool to plan rides. for that i use ride with GPS - i can log activities and plan rides.

Good luck with the rest of the challenge! Smile

Yep. I use RWGPS for planning too. I like Strava for the "racing" feature. I avoid some of the more dangerous segments. Fortunately, about half of the commute I show is on fairly clear bike path.
