Strava shake-up: major changes for paid and free users
Strava hopes to turn this around. The 11-year-old company has made some significant changes to bolster the value of its subscription service. In turn, it has also removed a number of popular features from its free service. This news is likely to stir up plenty of criticism, but do consider that Strava has long given away its core product for free, hardly a longterm business strategy for success.
I was an early adopter, but over time my interest waned because I grew to feel like "every run and ride was a race," and it was disheartening to see how many people were gaming it.
Now I either exercise without a device, or post to my mostly private Garmin account.
What do you think about the changes at Strava?
