Strava tastic......
« on: April 14, 2014, 10:21:10 PM »
With the new trails opening up, I've noticed the Sanitized trail / XC loop / markies berms / troellog ........
many Strava sections already made by many...

Tis just a thought ..... Why don't we have an official Clyne Riders or Pigs sections marked out on the new trails linked with proper sections on Strava ?!

Eg .... Millers top section .... Millers middle section ..... Millers top to pond .... Etc

Otherwise there's going to be dozens of sections for the same trail ?

The way markers could even incorporate said signage ......it will be the First trail to do so I reckon !!

Any thoughts ?
Planning on living forever .... So far so good !!

We could be on dodgy ground if we openly create "official" segments because we could be accused of encouraging "racing".

I suppose we could unofficially  ;) created "official" segments (it makes complete sense in my head!  ??? ) However Strava won't recognise them any differently from any others. And people will do what they do whether or not there are "official" segments. It'll be like Afan with a plethora of segments. Either way I wouldn't be too concerned. We could take it on ourselves to "police" the segments - e.g. flag segments as dangerous if they cross the top fireroad, or flag a segment if it runs along a shared use part of the trail. But it's probably a ball-ache I personally wouldn't be too interested in getting into.
