If you look on any of the new local trail pages you will notice Strava segments for each trail. These segments will help new riders determine how long it will take to ride each trail or trail segment. Segments will also let you see how fast the really fast guys and gals ride each trail. Strava is a great way to track your progress as you improve your mountain biking skills. You can race against yourself or others virtually. See if you can knock the top guy or gal off the podium and become the king or queen of the mountain.
I have created a NIMBA Strava club that will let you find other NIMBA members on Strava. It is free to join and you can be a part of multiple clubs. Join now I am getting lonely. Click here to see how Strava works. Basic requirements are a smart phone (iPhone or Android) or some sort of Garmin device. If you have a Garmin you can upload your old data to see how you stack up without even braving the cold.
