The idea, according to developers, is to try and enhance the social side of Strava. They claim that the most popular rides are the ones with a personal twist.

To use it, you pick your activity and then it automatically imports your maps and photos. You can then put fingers to keys and create your literary masterpiece.

It then adds a link automatically to your Strava account.

It’s certainly a novel idea, but whether your mates read your masterpieces is a different matter.
