• Went out for a ride this evening without my Garmin. Nothing to upload to strava, no idea of speed, nothing other than a simple bike ride… anyone else ever do that? Being psychologically minded, I’m interested in the positive and negative benefits of strava for motivation… and just wondered if anyone else has experimented with ditching the technology and just riding. A ride with a few other people where none of us had data is appealing too.

    • I have various activity profiles on my Garmin, so if I just want to ride I choose the profile with minimum data, i.e. time of day. I still like to record all rides so that I can track progress.
