Loosing my trust in Strava.

So I've tried to get on with Strava, I've tried so hard, I've always tried to keep my faith in Strava, but she's just not right.

Strava's always disagreeing with Garmin, even more so with Android, it's like an ugly threesome, they never come to the same conclusion, never, I'm thinking I need to divorce Strava.

I need some relationship advice thanks.

    Are you uploading the .GPX file from your Garmin, or using the iPhone app?

    one thing that's for sure...your altitude readings for the ride out to your TT yesterday are way out! The whole ride out through southern Manchester was lower than sea level with an amazing 13% hill appearing out of nowhere to take you up 95 m in 0.72 km!

    Are you giving your Garmin/Phone time to acquire a good signal before you start riding? The longer the better but at least 3 minutes to allow things to settle down. Also when you use your phone, where is it? In your jersey pocket? Do you know where the GPS antenna is in your phone and does it have a clear view of the sky? In a jersey pocket, your body will act as a good shield resulting in a poor GPS signal.

    This is how dodgy Strava is.

    My moving average was 19.8 and not 17.0

    Did you use a lift for that section about an hour in? :wink:
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    No, I did a bunny hop.

    Strava always seems to undercut my moving average -> I guess its because the GPS takes longer to recognize that you've stopped than a traditional cycle computer?

    It did mean that i was quite happy when i found out.. because I'm not as slow as a thought I was! :mrgreen:

    Silence, infidel.

    Strava is the only truth in a world of lies. It can't be wrong.
