If it’s not on Strava, it didn’t happen

There is a bit of a meme going around about recording your rides on Strava to the effect of “If it’s not on Strava, it didn’t happen“. I’m a big Strava fan and use it on almost all my rides, yesterday’s ride around Kenora was no exception. However, the problem was I appear to have “paused” the ride early on and lost most of the recording!

I rode hard through a couple of segments hoping to improve my standings including the Harbour Front Sprint where I had a tail wind and only needed 1 second more to take over the KOM.

But, I guess it didn’t happen! While I rode the Kenora Big Loop, as shown by the Wahoo Fitness app, it seems that while adjusting the display on my RFLKT, I paused the ride, so all I have to show is the GPS track and no stats, very disappointing. I think I’ll request a new feature from the Wahoo folks. The RFLKT should really indicate that your ride is paused, perhaps by blinking the display to make sure you really know what’s going on.

Anyway a ride that should have looked like this, turned out like this.
