A simple question for users of Strava...
If you didn't then, have you done so since?
Just trying to gather some simple data for a university assignment.
Thanks in advance.
Tht's a No & a No - gads!

So far it's a 100% no, but I think the sample size of two is a little too small.
Whoops, no I did not.
Nope and nadda.
No I didn't either
Supplemental question, for those who have responded and for those who haven't:
I have set up a Privacy Zone - I have not deactivated Fly-bys.
I did. I should also point out that their privacy zone has a major flaw. Its a circle, based on a address, of a known distance which means that its an easy calculation to determine the centre. Any location that I want unknown, such as home, uses 4-5 circles located on different different points away from my home with various levels of overlapping. This way the distance is unknown and therefore the centre can not be calculated.
I wouldn't even be happy with an 'overlapping circles' arrangement as it would still provide a good enough localisation to be refined by other data.
I don't use Strava, for that reason. I'm secure enough in myself that I don't need the ego boost of seeing myself on a leaderboard, and I can customise my private log to suit my needs.
Yes I set up the privacy zone, but not deactivated the fly bys.
Agree with James about the privacy circle issue though. At least I'm not on a secret US Military base though.
I did. pretty much what I expected given that they make most of their money from 'big data' analysis
