|Strava just emailed me to tell me that I’m the new Local Legend in town!|
|“You just claimed the title of Local Legend on Fry Rd Northbound.“|
Ironically it was right after they emailed me to say “Dethroned!” and that someone had stolen my QOM.
Local Legend is a new Strava term. QOM is about speed. Local Legend is about persistence. You get awarded the title when you have the most tries on a given segment.
“The Local Legend (LCL) achievement is awarded to the athlete who completes a given segment the most over a rolling 90-day period regardless of pace or speed. “
I’m the local legend on a stretch of road in Prince Edward County. Not exactly local. That’s a good reason to visit Sarah’s family farm a lot this summer and autumn.
One thought on “Sam is a local legend (but not really)”
“…quite worrying as it could highlight places where a a solo female rider regularly rides. Granted, you could go and find this out anyway, but her feeling was this made it easier, and that made her feel vulnerable…”
^ A reader left the above comment on my page about Local Legends. Quite concerning. It never even crossed my mind that it could make women cyclists feel that way, but I thought you may find the viewpoint interesting and have a more qualified opinion on the subject!
