Among the premium customers, the Strava includes those who pay a Summit subscription. This was previously divided into several categories, and an athlete could only pay for one of them depending on whether he wanted to focus on training, analyzing his performance or safety. Each of the categories either cost $ 2.5 per month or all together $ 6. Now they’re all put together by Strava for $ 5.
You can also record your trips in the basic free version, compare with others in your area, or monitor your friends and their performance. You can also join a group and be active within these communities. One such was created by the ICE trikes manufacturer for its customers and directly on the homepage of its website shows the mileage covered by the group. ICE also encourages performance through monthly competitions and evaluates the year-round effort too.
On the other hand, many recumbent riders who use the Strava complain that they cannot compare themselves directly with recumbent riders and that the Strava distinguishes only mountain and road bikes. Proposals to add recumbent bikes as a type of sporting activity date back to 2015, but have not yet been heard. That is why we are all dependent on different recumbent groups, such as the one from ICE.
