So I know many of the folks on here are trying to stay fit this summer. Some are trying to keep in shape for winter while others may be entering competitions for various sweat inducing activities but there is one thing I know everyone enjoys... competition!
I may just have found what you are looking for: Strava
Basically it is an app that you can install on your iPhone or Android (can also use Garmin devices, but that is better described on their website) that tracks your speed, distance, and route then archives it on their website ( www.strava.com
) Not only does this handy app help you keep track of your progress but it has leader boards for routes around your area.
I have just started on it and it seems awesome. I definitely recommend it to any cyclists or runners that are looking to keep track of their progress while being helped along by some social competition.
Also, if anyone currently uses it and wants to try and make a Newschoolers group that would be awesome!
Bonus: If you're worried about privacy they have an option to 'block' some areas (such as your home) if you end your ride/ run there it will mask it so others cant find where you live.
