    It's slightly off topic, but does anyone know why I "use" about twice as many calories on any given cycle according to Garmin than according to Strava?

    I haven't tried the new site yet. Though this does (maybe!) explain why the server was continuously unavailable on Friday and Saturday!

  • Socks51 weeks 16 hours agoSocks is one of the areas

    Socks is one of the areas where I'm not too picky about. I just like them to not go too far up my leg, but any thickness really is fine for me, I don't find it affects me.

    Although I don't exactly wear woolly ones!

    Yep still see the old website here! And I don't have a switch to modern option Sad

    Lucky you!

    The most noticeable difference is how much slower the new site is. This isn't the time taken to find a link (that will improve with practice) but the time after clicking before the new page actually loads and becomes useful.

    Fortunately there is the option of temporarily switching back to the old site, which I did after giving it a fair appraisal (~1 week). After this article I've tried it once more, again unimpressed, switched back to 'traditional'

    Fortunately I have all my .fit files, but would lose my comments, if this doesn't significantly improve before 'traditional' is closed I'll have to look at other sites. Before reading this I happened to load a ride onto Strava this morning, the first time since last Summer - this might become more common...

  • First look: new Garmin Connect51 weeks 17 hours agoTo me it seems a little late

    To me it seems a little late to the party with regard to segments, Strava has too much of a hold on this.

    To use it you need a garmin, and whilst they are popular its still exclusive, and hence uptake will be lower than strava, so the 'competition' on segments will also be lower.

    If you have a garmin you will upload to both but the amount of data available through Strava and Veloviewer already makes this out of date.

    It doesnt do anything Strava hasn't done for years so needs something far more innovative to draw people away although I have no idea what that could be.

    In the past few days they've added the weight widget, but then they've removed ANT+ weight scale support from their recent products, and it simply errors on uploading the weight (and %fat etc.) from my FR210.

    I've been using it for the last two months, and the 'work-in-progress' is everywhere. It's nowhere near sorted and huge glaring errors just are not fixed.

    Sadly Chris, the people standing to be MEPs in the UK are generally the sort of people who would never get elected as an MP but have ambitions higher than a local councillor presenting the Longest Leek award at the villege fete.

    If we can't get actual MPs to listen, this lot are a dead loss.

    Bollocks! Despite what the oil companies would have you believe the world's oil reserves will be nearly dry by 2030 and global government have left it too late to do anything about it. By then only the mega rich will be able to afford fuel so there will be a sharp decline in motor vehicle use.

  • Police seek SE London youth photographed riding stolen £2k bike51 weeks 17 hours agoSaying that the guy shouldn't

    Saying that the guy shouldn't have stored his bikes in a shed is exactly the sort of victim blaming that we object to when drivers say cyclists should wear high-vis or should use cycle lanes or whatever. It has no place here. In a perfect society I'd be able to leave my bike outside the front of my house unlocked and no-one would touch it, simply because it isn't theirs.

    I must agree though that if Her Majesty's Plod can't find this guy then they really need to take a good hard look at themselves.

    People in sheffield hear about all the yellow marked routes around the area and here we have... nothing! All the yorkshire festival stuff celebrating the TdF coming to yorkshire and we have such a small involvement that there is no point at all! Pretty standard stuff to be honest.
