Strava Integrates Instagram Jan 30, 2013

As far as I’m concerned, two of the greatest social media apps coming together is a good thing. Instagram has become a part of my life and like many cyclists out there, I like to document rides, roads and new routes, especially since I travel and ride in so many cities. Strava announced yesterday that Instagram is now integrated. Simply go to your settings and click “Connect with Instagram”.

This route in particular had some good shots in it. But it’s even better for dirt and trails!

Now, one thing that I’d like to see is more accurate geotagging, or showing you where on the map the photo was taken, which doesn’t work well for #latergram.

Oh, follow me on Instagram, too.

    This is awesome and totally logical. Most situations of social networks connecting don’t really add value or fun but this definitely does.

    I haven’t had a social media account since 05 and this is the first time I’ve considered getting something like instagram. I can document so many sweet spots. Hmmm

    Remember when you had to ride with someone to discover a new trail… that was social networking.

    “Stravinstagram”  sounds like a 16th century composer
