Strava: one of the first apps on Google Glass

Google Glass cycling mock up

Ride logging and performance website Strava will be one of the first companies to provide an application for next year's Google Glass system, a wearable device that allows users to view information via a small screen built into a pair of glasses, and also film what they see.

Google has elected to use the Strava app as its headline application on the Google Glass UK website. The 'heads up' view of ride data displayed on the glasses will give a rider speed, distance, GPS information, heart rate and other details directly in view without the need to look down at a bar-mounted computer.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
