  1. Download the Strava app on your iOS or Android device.
  2. Create a free account and get started by updating your profile and settings, and finding friends by linking your profile to your contacts and social networks.
  3. Join the Bike MS Cyclists Strava Club (it has an orange verified checkmark, so you know it is legit) with this link. Or open the Strava Explore tab under Clubs, and type “Bike MS Cyclists” and change your location to “anywhere.”
  4. Connect with Bike MS cyclists across the country through the club! Your riding activities will automatically be shared in the Bike MS Cyclists Strava Club, and Strava will pull a weekly leaderboard.

    1. You can enable GPS tracking on your phone to track your activity.
    2. You can sync Strava with other GPS tracking devices like Garmin, Peloton, Apple Watch and more. Find the full list and instructions here.

  7. Depending on your privacy settings, your friends will be able to see your riding activities, comment and give you kudos.
  8. If you want to share your activity with your social networks, tap on your activity and click the share activity button (top right corner, square with arrow). Strava will auto populate your route along with any photos you added and general stats from your ride. Depending on what you have connected, the app will share on your activity on social networks or save it as a photo directly to your device – this photo option lets you share your ride outside of the Strava ecosystem. Be sure to use the hashtag: #BikeMSInsideOut!
