Strava wants to save you from more email, followed by more text messages and then phone calls. The San Francisco-based social network and data company for cyclists and runners has expanded its Club Event feature to iOS and Android platforms.
The feature, which has been part of the web-based platform since early 2014. A club admin can create an event, choose a route, set a meeting place and provide more information about the ride. Club members can then RSVP. Now, you don’t need to log into a browser to use these features. They’re in the app.
“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 organize a real-world activity quickly. Bringing Club Events to mobile is our latest step to help build thriving communities on Strava.”
