Ladies and Gents,

Be careful where you begin and end your rides on trailforks/strava. A fellow rider I know had his bike stolen out of his garage. He suspects that thieves may be finding where our pricey bikes are by using these apps to look at logged rides that originate at houses. If you ride from your house, I suggest starting your logged ride at an unassuming location down the street, or the house of a neighbor you despise. Not sure if this is common knowledge, so just a quick suggestion to my fellow riders.

Thanks,
Z

Turn on privacy zone feature on both apps to avoid highlighting a location where your bike is kept.

I need an app to hide all my info on my other apps so the app thieves don't get me!

This is 1 reason I just ride my bike.
