Hey, if rider depends on Strava, don't leave home without it. OTOH, a wristwatch and odometer will give you all the information you need to asses the ride. Or forget the whole thing and just smell the roses. Throw in a few short intervals when you're feeling good!
It's all information... It's not all useful or accurate information. But! Information is a lot like reading. Having it always good. You can choose to use it or not. But if you don't have it, you don't have a choice...I think we forget that not all data is information.
the story is funny however I think it's sad that most of the "connected" crowd get some of their self worth or 5 minutes of fame from others that they do not really know and forget how beautiful this world is, people and places.. yep picking up pennies and standing on dollarsWhat's sad is that about half of the small audience this story is intended for won't get the joke because they're data obsessed.
