Strava adds club feature to enable group bike ride planning

By Stephen Frothingham

SAN FRANCISCO (BRAIN) — Strava has introduced a new feature on its mobile app and website: Club Events. The feature lets groups create events with planned routes, send invitations with RSVPs, and share the event on other social media. The feature became available on Strava’s website recently and now is available on its mobile app as well.

“Bringing our Club Events feature to mobile is another way we’re continuing to help our community of athletes engage with one another,” said Will Lee, product manager at Strava. “From talking to club admins, we learned that they were looking for an easier way to plan group activities with members, especially on mobile. Club events on mobile allow athletes in a club to quickly organize a real-world activity. Bringing Club events to mobile is our latest step to help build thriving communities on Strava.”

The events functionality on mobile builds on the recent introduction of clubs on the Strava website and is available on mobile for iOS and Android now.
