STRAVA Local Legends LIVE – UK Info Below

STRAVA local legends are now live and you can see if there are any near you from either the STRAVA app or web platform. There will be lenty more than those near you and I’ve shown below the ABSOLUTELY top-ranked run and bike segments for all regions of the UK and a total UK (USA to follow)

With Richmond Park only just properly re-opened to cyclists in the UK, I’m not sure that Kingston to Bushy¬†will remain as the most popular bike segment. Handily it’s a mile from where I live ūüėČ Although the thought of having to do 1km over a busy and bumpy road for 98 times to beat the current leader is a somewhat daunting challenge that I’ll not be taking up.

It’s also reassuring to note that 5 of the UK’s top 10 segments are ones that I regularly ride and whilst my run and bike testing might not be in the most glamourous locations in the world I think STRAVA can now help me say that I certainly am doing my tests in popular, real-world conditions! Thank you STRAVA.

So where in the app do we see these new stats? I’m not seeing them for the segments I rode today, but maybe I’m looking in the wrong place. I’m in the UK, btw.
