Which Training and Analysis Apps Now That Strava is No Longer Free

New Phone, new accessories

I’ve needed a new phone for a while. I did have a nice iPhone 5C that did the job well enough but very kindly swapped with Morgan for my even older iPhone 4 so that he could Pokémon while that was all the craze. Needless to say he hasn’t been that inclined to swap back...
