Strava Overload!

Across the world Strava captured ride data showing 4.1 billion kilometres were ridden by users who gained 40.6 million kilometres in altitude.

In Australia Sunday was the day most likely for a ride, men rode at an average speed of 25.8kph, rode on average 42km, and spent 1:51 in the saddle per ride.

Women logged 22.6kph on average, 36km per ride, and spent 1:38 on the bike doing so.

Mr Average Australia clocked up just over 1200km for the year and Ms Mainstream 685.

But what is Strava if not useful for some friendly competition?

They haven’t made comaprison data readily available across continents but a little digging finds that from our popoulation of 23.13M, Australian cyclists using Strava rode over 279 million kilometres, while Strava users in the US (from the total US population of 318.9M) rode 867 million.

Australian men pipped the Americans for speed with 25.8kph vs their 23.49, as did the Ausssie women with 25.8 vs 22.6kph. Perpetuating the stereotype of the tenacious Australian sportsperson, terrain wasn’t a contributing factor with Aussie men and women taking on more hills, climbing an average of 410m and 326m, respectively, compared to the Yankee’s 347m and 287 per ride.

There’s no hiding folks, if you use Strava, someone is always watching.
