TIPS and TRICKS
1) You can MANUALLY input activities into Strava even if you track your distance with a different device, just look for the plus sign [+].
- On mobile, this is found on the “Feed” screen.
- On a computer, go to the Strava website, set up or sign in to your Strava account and choose the “Training” dropdown menu. Select “Activities” and find the plus symbol [+] in the top right corner by your profile picture.)
2) For those without access to the Strava app: submit your total distance (in kilometres) by e-mail: email@example.com
3) If you take your family out for a ride, your children’s distance counts as well! So if your family of four takes a four-kilometre spin, you can report 16 km total!
