    Default Pointless Prize: I record my rides with a phone not bike computer #phoneride

    aka I don't need no expensive stinkin' GPS bike computer!

    I'm going to hazard a guess that a fair number of y'all use your phones to record rides rather than a bike computer, e.g., Garmin, Wahoo. If you're one of those, then this prize is for you. Hashtag your rides on Strava #phoneride. And since Strava also says what kind of device your ride was recorded on, I'll be able to check to know whether #phoneride rides are legit. The #phoneride rider with the most rides wins. In the event of a tie, then the tiebreaker will be the rider with the most miles. If that doesn't break the tie, then ... I'll have to think about another tiebreaker.

    And the reason I'm doing this pointless prize is because of the prize I'm going to award: a Peak Design out front phone mount plus iPhone 11 case. NOTE: The case is required to use the out front mount and Peak Design only makes cases for certain iPhones and Galaxy phones. Check their website to see if your phone is one of them. If not, then this is not the pointless prize you're looking for.

    Hahaha!

    Well, I just switched from an iPhone 6S to a Google Pixel 6 Pro and I'm not going back.

    And all rides recorded on a phone, baby!

    Hmmm, will the iPhone 11 case fit the iPhone XR? Inquiring minds want to know!

    According to this website, the iPhone 11 and XR have the same dimensions and both have 6.1 inch screens, so I'm going to say the case I have will fit.

    https://size-charts.com/topics/scree...een-resolution

    iPhone 11 W - 2.98 inch (7.57 cm) L - 0.33 inch (0.83 cm) H -5.94 inch (15.09 cm)
    iPhone XR W - 2.98 inch (7.57 cm) L - 0.33 inch (0.83 cm) H -5.94 inch (15.09 cm)

    And the winner is (drum roll) ... Sophie CW with 92 #phoneride. I'll have the prize stuff with me at HH, so can deliver in person.
