Strava is more fun with some friendly competition!

Strava gets even more fun when you invite friends. Following friends opens up a world of social interaction and gets the competitive spirit going. You can invite friends via email or Facebook. For more information about connecting Strava to your social networks, see this page.  

To get started inviting friends, follow these steps:

1) Click on the "Invite Athletes to Strava" button when you see it on your Dashboard, your list of followed athletes, or anywhere else.

2) You can add emails of the friends you want to invite, or select Gmail to browse your Gmail contacts for easy selection.
3) You can also add friends via Facebook: just click on the Facebook icon at the left side of the page.
From here you can see all your Facebook friends that are already on Strava, or select those that aren't in order to invite them to join in on the fun.

Additionally, Strava will recomend people you can follow. Look on your Dashboard for the “Who to Follow” list on the right side of the page. Or, from your Profile page, click on “Who to Follow” at the top, and see who Strava thinks might be interesting for you to follow.

Looking for your friends on Strava? Use the Athlete Search to find them.

Still want more friends? Don’t have their emails? Wondering who’s on Strava already? You can find friends through the Athlete Search. Just click on “Explore”, at the top of your screen. Then choose “Athlete Search” from the secondary row of tabs. Or simply visit

From this page, you will be able to find your friends by first or last name, as well as invite your Facebook or email contacts to join Strava.
