Strava has just gained a new feature to make organising your group rides even easier

New Club Events feature lets you create events for rides and pre-plan routes

If you ever struggle to get your mates together for a ride, and then when you do manage to meet up you all have different ideas about where to ride, then Strava has a solution.

The latest update to the Strava app includes a new feature called Club Events, which allows users to invite other riders along to rides, and even make the route available for everyone to download in advance.

Similar to events on Facebook, there is also the option for riders to comment on the event, meaning there shouldn't be any confusion over whether the ride will be a gentle spin in the sun or a take-no-prisoners tear-up.

While Strava clubs have been around on desktop for a while now, they are a relatively recent edition to mobile. If you're wondering where they are in the app, then they can be found under the explore tab, with each club including a nice graph to see how your riding is stacking up against your clubmates.
