Are thieves watching your bike rides?

I just recently received an email describing how thieving are locating and stealing expensive bicycles by tracking the start and end points bicycle rides on Garmin Connect.

I actually use Strava.com, so I did a quick vulnerability check.

What I found has me giving huge kudos to the Strava gang, because it’s easy to protect your start and end points.

Just do this on your Strava account:

  1. Go to “settings”
  2. Then “privacy”
  3. Then enter your home or work address and Strava will anonymize your start and end points out to a maximum of one mile. [And you can enter multiple locations.]

Way to go Strava!
