    Default Strava Cuts Off Ironman Virtual Club: An Explainer To Sports Tech Drama

    I don't think we have this problem plus I would imagine Freezing Saddles is small fries but something to be aware of--no reusing the Strava API key for multiple apps!

    We use an API key for Strava that is unique and only used for Freezing Saddles, not shared with any other apps.

    Thanks for checking! I thought the article was interesting too for the sports intrigue.

    Surprised to see such rookie mistake by a shop that seemed to be well established.

    One feature that I think would get more people to sign up would be the ability to initiate a private conversation with a mutual follower. It would help foster friendships with folks that you meet on a ride and end up being Strava friends with but otherwise donít have contact info for.

    I never really understood why Strava gave away so much in the free version. I think they would better thinning out the free version more and making a lite version at say $2/month with most the current free features and keeping the premium staying where it is.
