Well I'll be. Strava Segment view

I'm not a real Strava power user and pretty much use the same view and the same info after each ride.

I did create a segment yesterday and I was just looking to see if it was populated today and stumbled onto something kinda cool IMHO

Anyway as I was looking at it I found a way to view all your personal efforts for a particular segment . I didn't know this feature was hidden in there. I'm sure the power users were/are very aware of this.

I've always just looked at the leaderboard, I don't have any KOMs so it's generally just a quick glance to see how far back from the leaders or top 10 I am

The first one is the one I created yesterday of a small climb here that's not steep but it always seems to have you nose first into the wind....always!

The second is one I created a couple of years ago for the mtb. I'm all over the map on that one and pretty steady on the road bike. Pretty sure I know the reason why too.

Well any way, I hope you like this and can use it.

I like the view and being able to see all your efforts on particular segments. I had not seen that.

I'll be sure not to let Phil Gaimon know about that KOM

In all seriousness still cool to have one. I have one and am surprised I still have it. That day I felt good and actually was out front on the group ride. Got lucky I guess. My best strava segment was one I did not get a KOM on but felt the effort was stronger + a lot more popular route.



I'm really digging go through and looking at all my efforts on different segments!
