Strava Sprinter World Premier
at Ride Studio Cafe Sunday, April 7th
The Strava Sprinter
The Sprinter is Strava‘s way of serving athletes in the real world as they do in the virtual world. They have computers mounted inside for athletes to upload their activities, they have water and nutrition fro GU, Clif, and Skratch Labs. They plan to use it at events and as an aid station where people are training, for both runners and cyclists. The Sprinter is *brand new* and has chosen to have its inaugural event in Boston and with us this Sunday, April 7th!
