Re: Mapping Local Trails

@jamiep - That's an interesting idea. Does it show on the map screen of Strava as an icon, or do you click the image to see?

Re: Divided screening in Sheffield

Went to see it in Edinburgh too and really enjoyed it especially the Q&A session afterwards too.

see if you can find the routes that the Trans Scotland Race people took. Jenny Tough wrote a blog and it had a pic of the strava fly-bys. (it isn't a fixed route.)
