VeloViewer.com is yet another third party data utility for Strava, recently brought to the attention of Team Bobby Dazzlers by a fellow mountain biker. You can read about all of the features. Put simply, it can be used to produce a list of all the segments you’ve ever ridden, and then providing all sorts of lists, statistics, and charts, based on your rankings within these segments. It also provides a neat little signature We’re not aware of any other third party Strava application that does this.
Another key feature it has over any other Strava data utility is production of word clouds, and signatures for emailing or for forums.
The VeloFlow feature seems rather similar to raceshape.com, which was featured on this blog last year. I can’t seem to notice any benefit of VeloFlow over Raceshape, and actually think Raceshape is still better for analysis of leaderboard results on a segment, as it gives you a chart of the time gap throughout the segment.
In summary, you can find out a lot of interesting data from VeloViewer, although I’m not convinced it can be used to make you a better rider in any way, no more than Raceshape. However it is extremely interesting and someone that enjoys Strava could spend hours looking through all their statistics on VeloViewer. Go check it out!
