I've always wanted to have a play about with Strava API to see what it can do, and Strava Club Segments Leaderboards is my first attempt. It's currently filtered on my local cycle club (CC London), but can be extended to support others. It monitors 8 segments (4 hills and 4 flats) and provides age-group, gender and time-period filtering by club, which is either difficult or impossible with the Strava app. I've also created an overall ranking for each member based on the best 6 segment positions.

While it was interesting to play about with page and get it working I've now put it on ice. I may resurrect it one day, but until then I'll leave it here as some of the links are still quite useful.
Pleased to finally got the LocalCycle recommendations page up and running. So far there are 64 links covering routes, rides, cafes, campaigning, promotion and more from across the UK. The objective is to try and bring together in one place all the great suggestions and recommendations that clubs, organisations and individuals create, but which otherwise require hunting down. At this stage its only possible to filter by country regions, but I plan to add more regions soon. Suggestions and links are always welcome via the contact page or twitter.
Updated the whole site to make it more responsive to mobile devices. All pages have been refreshed using the bootstrap responsive framework.
I'm a big wattbike fan, but went through the same dilemma as most people when trying to decide which model to buy. I'm a much stronger cyclist than my better half and was worried the trainer wouldn't have enough resistance. In the end we went for the trainer on the basis that the magnetic resistance should even things out. While this works fine, I was frustrated that there wasn't a published resistance table for the different magnetic resistance settings
Wattbike were very helpful and provided me the data, but it wasn't particularly easy to use in practice so I wrote this interactive table instead.
Finally got round to deploying the new LocalCycle web site and TCX HR Tweak. The tool is still beta and has problems working in IE, but works fine in Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Please give it a go and give me constructive feedback via the contact page.
