Couple from different continents get hitched with Strava

The pair, from Australia and the US, followed each other on Strava before meeting for a real world ride...and he finally proposed using the app

A couple from two different continents met – and got married – via Strava; and of course he popped the question on the social media platform.

Dave Baun, 49, who lives in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, and Liisa Grace, in Adelaide, Australia, first became acquainted when she followed him on Strava, reports Bicycling. Kudos and comments led to Instagram and then Facebook contact, until the couple decided to meet. He travelled to Australia and the two embarked on a series of rides she had planned for them.

Apparently Baun had tried dating websites, and though he admits it seems unlikely to meet someone on a social media app, it has panned out pretty well for  the couple.

 Her reply was "Yes yes...forever YESSSSSS!!!"

People have proposed via Strava before but we think this is the first couple who also met via the app.
