Strava updates mobile app with group functionality

Strava Clubs

If you're a member of any clubs on Strava, the latest mobile update will please you as it's added a new club experience that they claim will "give athletes a comprehensive home for group activities: one place to meet athletes, get inspired by each other’s training, share routes and events, organise group activities, track those activities and analyse and discuss afterwards". Sounds pretty good. 

“We’re always looking for new ways to help our community of athletes engage with each other,” says William Lee, Product Manager at Strava. “A lot of our athletes rely on their mobile devices for running and riding, so it made sense to bring clubs to mobile and make them as easily accessible as other Strava features. Now you can see the top ten athletes of the week on the leaderboard, interact with club members on discussion boards, share news and updates and post announcements all via your phone, to keep the club active, motivating and growing.”

The latest updates include:

Discussions and Comments: Athletes can post comments to discussion boards as well as manage and interact with club members, all from their mobile device.

Explore: Athletes can search and easily navigate clubs that they are part of, and explore new clubs that are relevant to them depending on their location, athlete network and interests.

Push Notifications: New push notifications make it easy to stay in touch and interact via discussion boards, posts and comment.

Share and Promote: Strava athletes can now promote their clubs via Facebook and Twitter.

To get the competitive juices flowing, users can also have a more in-depth look at their own and other club members’ activities by opening the club’s feed, plus improved leaderboards within clubs allow athletes to to compare their weekly stats to fellow club members.
