About Strava

Record an activity and it goes to your Strava feed, where your friends and followers can share their own races and workouts, give kudos to great performances and leave comments on each other’s activities. Strava syncs with most devices – your phone, GPS watch or head unit, heart rate monitor, or power meter. All kinds of groups form clubs on Strava to organize activities and build communities – friends, teams, brands, gear shops and more. When you join our Stanford Recreation and Wellness Strava, your performance will be shared with the community! Here is how!

Important notes

  • We encourage all participants to practice physical distancing while exercising at this time.
  • Please ensure you are choosing activities that are appropriate for your level of fitness.
  • If you’re not sure, consult a medical professional.
  • Listen to your body and do what’s best for your body each day.
  • “Q: Can I still exercise? Take my kids to the park for fresh air? Take a walk around the block? Walk my dog?
    • A: Yes. So long as you are maintaining a safe social distance of six feet from people who aren’t part of your household, it is ok to go outside for exercise, a walk or fresh air. Gyms are closed.” –California Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response
