    Default Strava Rivalry?

    What's the etiquette involved in an online Strava rivlary with someone that you don't know? They take one of your KOMs, so you take two of theirs, then they take one of those back...At what point does it become a rivalry? Do you follow each other to keep tabs daily? Reach out to them? Talk trash? Become friends?

    Inquiring minds want answers, you know, for a friend...

    Become friends of course.
    Isn't is wonderful to find someone who can match your abilities?
    I am so happy for you.
    Embrace this person.

    Invite him to the next Bike Arlington Happy Hour! (And your hypothetical friend, too).

    Hey Tim! Wouldn't it be nice to have a real friend instead of an imaginary one?

    This is a rough crowd. And this from a girl who rides in heels and a tutu!

    Yeah, I was going to say something along the lines of, "It depends on if the imaginary friends is leprechaun sized and wears a tutu on the weekend..."

    Arm wrestling. If that doesn't settle the matter, pistols at dawn. (Paint ball pellets only, of course).

    Go to all of their KOMs in your car, make them cry.

    or make friends and share a beer
