Take a look at this segment created by the “Strava Community” of troubled Strava, Inc. owners, managers, and/or users.
See? This is a bike trip down Nob Hill through the Tenderloin to the Mid Market:

Note the innocuous-sounding title: Hyde/Market st.
But also note the URL up there. The name of this segment used to be “Hyde Street Bomb!” But that doesn’t look so hot when you’re in the national news for getting sued.
Oh, here it is, have a go on the YouTube – will the cyclist beat all those cagers in Priuseses what stop for red lights? Hells yes:
Now, do you think that the “Strava Community” might have had an effect on the behavior of this cyclist?
You Make The Call.
And oh, here’s how that Strava webpage looked before, was it just a day ago? Two days ago? I don’t know. But this is quite a recent change. Alls I know is that somebody in the “Strava Community,” be it an owner, manager, legal advisor, person following instructions from a legal advisor, cyclist, or, really, anybody in the entire world, created this segment and/or edited it.
The people at Strava, Inc. aren’t what you call transparent, so it’s hard to tell.
Anyway, here’s your Hyde Street Bomb!
Does registering for Strava and racing down Nob Hill in this fashion make you an “athlete?”
Again, You Make The Call.
