Frequently Asked Questions

Strava is a free application that you can use to track your bike rides. Their paid plan is not required. You can use the Strava app for iOS or Android to automatically track your rides with GPS. Or you can log into on your computer or phone and enter the details of each ride manually. Every time you record a ride on Strava, your stats will be added to the Leaderboards at, and you'll be entered again into the raffle for prizes.

Independent from Bike Month, you can follow your friends on Strava and give them kudos and comments on their rides. There is a "challenges" feature within the Strava app, but that is not related to Tahoe Bike Month.

If you need any help getting started, please don't hesitate to reach out!

When you Connect With Strava, you'll be asked for permission to share your Strava data with Tahoe Bike Month:
  • Access to your Public Profile is required in order to load your name and profile picture on the Tahoe Bike Month website.
  • Access to your Activities is required in order to count your rides towards Bike Month. We will access information about your Activities like the distance and elevation gained in order to score points. We’ll use their start locations in order to count the total rides within each region of Lake Tahoe. We’ll publicly share a link to view your Biggest Ride on Strava, but Strava’s privacy settings will apply so the link will not work for anybody who doesn’t have access to view the activity. We will publicly share aggregated statistics like mileage totals for the month.
  • You can optionally grant us access to your Private Activities. This way you can share a ride with “only me” but still have the mileage count towards Bike Month. Otherwise only rides shared with friends or the public will count. Sometimes the "only me" feature is handy if you are logging many rides to run errands and you don't want to overwhelm your friends in Strava.
  • We do not access your heart rate data. The strava webpage might call this out because they are able to keep track of this "medical information" from your smart watch, but it is not used for Tahoe Bike Month.
