The "Best Efforts" arrive in cycling on Strava

Training 20/03/24 14:00 Migue A.

Strava expands its functionality of best efforts to include cycling. A feature that allows its premium subscribers to easily check their records in parameters such as times in certain distances or the maximum power values obtained in certain time intervals.

Strava helps you improve by incorporating the "Best Efforts" function into cycling

Best Efforts is a feature that Strava already included in disciplines such as running, where we could easily check our performance in the most common distances in this sport such as 5 km, 10 km, half marathon, or marathon. Now, Strava extends this functionality to other sports, including cycling.

We can find the Best Efforts information in the "You" section of the Strava mobile app, but we can only access it if we are premium users of the app. In the case of cycling, this function also includes data such as power, elevation gain in a single ride, or times in selected intervals.

Therefore, in terms of distances, we can know our best times in 10 km, 10 mi, 20 km, 40 km, 50 km, 50 mi, 80 km, 90 km, 100 km, 100 mi, 180 km, and, more interestingly for training, the data of best power peaks specified in 5 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, and 2 hours.

This information allows us to quickly understand our profile as cyclists, with the ability to access the activity where that record was achieved with a single tap, as well as offering a comparison between the 5 best efforts of each year and graphs to be aware of our annual progress.

This feature joins other improvements that Strava has introduced for its subscribers, such as goal setting or the Flyover function, as well as new integrations with third-party platforms.
