    Is it worth upgrading to Premium on Strava?

    (I'm off Scotland for a week tomorrow - Sat 20 - so I'll reply when I'll get back)

    There is usually a 30 day free trial always happening. Try it and find out.

    Depends if you want the functionality offered? Can't see any point myself

    I went through a very brief - in my mind - competitive period and went premium to compete against my workmates and went premium then. If that's your thing its worth it, not very expensive.

    I'm thinking to take up the free trial, download a few routes others have ridden that interest me, then give the free trial back ^_^

    It's great if you want to use live segments. It makes you push your self into oblivion as it's addictive. Trouble is I'm destroyed after a few PR's so have to dismiss or turn off the rest on the ride.

    unless you are into the numbers it's not worth it. There are some chrome ext which can show you stats that are simIlar for free. However this is coming from someone who was trying to KOM on any segment going a few years back. Now I really don't give a stuff apart from log my miles.

  8. You can get other people GPX without premium. Just click the spanner, and select "create route". Then you can download the GPX from the route you have created.

    Oh, yes. Classic humblebrag. :okay:

    You sure this will achieve me getting the same route?
    When I tried, it said creating a route might lose some characteristics.
    I will try with one that I'm already familiar with, so I can't get lost.

    To the OP, if you want numbers have a look at Veloviewer - costs £10 a year and you get a shed load of data. You can upload your last 25 rides (I think) for free to see if you like it / it provides what you want.

  11. My free trial of strava premium is about to run out but I've already cancelled it I don't feel it was worth it. I've got a power meter and some of the stats you can get from premium are nice to know but not vital IMO or features I can't get elsewhere for free.

    I upgraded endomondo last month and to ne honest i won't bother with it next year. Im not bothered about calories, and heart rate and anything else. All i use it for is to give me an estimate of how far i have gone and how long it took me.

    If you've got a high end cycle computer and want to use its features premium is a must.

    Actually I would say that Stavistix Chome add on gives you far more detailed data than Premium.

    Maybe but live segments is the most interesting feature and you need premium.
