Strava does it again
The Strava “your year in review” is back in 2021.
I just wanted to point out a couple of things:
- This overview is only available on the mobile app. Desktop users are out of luck.
- The overview and statistics is only available in animated form. You can’t stop the animation nor can you browse the pages in a normal fashion. The presentation is utterly and completely accessibility-unfriendly. You can only screenshot a page as it slides by.
- Although the version from 2020 suffered from the same issues above, it at least managed to present the data in the units I have selected on Strava, which are kilometers and Celsius. It managed to show my coldest activity in Celsius, but showed all distances and elevations in miles and feet, respectively.
 I did not post this to flex my numbers. I have no idea how they compare to other people’s numbers. I’m a healthy, active person living in a beautiful, mountainous country. I likes to be outside and have friends who feel the same way, all of which makes it much easier to do stuff that Strava considers to be valuable.↩
 As God intended. See Velominati’s rule #24. I actually re-checked the setting just to be sure: yes, it’s set to “metric”.↩
 I don’t even put every activity on Strava (e.g. strength or yoga workouts at home). 💪↩
 On a side note and, while we’re actually on the topic of accessible web sites, the Velominati web site uses a simple HTML unordered list and CSS to style it the way they’d like. Very nice.↩
