Strava Crazy? Here’s How To Use It To Ride Better

  • Deborah Lupton


In 2015 and 2016, a team led by Deborah Lupton, a sociologist from the University of Canberra in Australia, spent months closely observing 18 self-tracking cyclists as they rode around the cities of Canberra and Melbourne.

Lupton was keen to understand exactly how cyclists were using data – for example, when they reviewed ride data (during the ride versus after) and how they interpreted it. Riders wore GoPros as they prepared for the ride and after they finished.
