Are you a cyclist looking to take your training to the next level? Rouvy is a virtual cycling platform that lets you ride lifelike courses, compete against other riders, and track your performance. With Rouvy, you can get the most out of every ride, whether you’re indoors or outdoors. And with its integration with Strava, you can make sure all your data is organized in one place.

So how do you connect Rouvy and Strava? It’s easy – all you need to do is log in to your Rouvy account on and navigate to the Connected Apps page. Once there, click the ‘Connect’ option next to Strava and follow the instructions. You’ll be asked to log in to your Strava account and grant permission for Rouvy to upload activities there – once that’s done, your accounts are linked!

Once connected, all of your activities tracked on Rouvy will automatically be available in Strava for review and analysis. You can also sync existing activities from Strava into Rouvy for virtual rides or races. This will allow you to track how you perform on different courses over time – great for setting goals and assessing progress!

In addition to connecting with Strava, Rouvy also offers various other ways to enhance your indoor cycling experience. For instance, if you have a basic trainer setup (like a speed sensor), then you can still use it with Rouvy’s virtual routes – just install it and connect it up! Alternatively, if you have a more advanced setup such as a smart trainer or power meter then these too can be connected via Bluetooth or ANT+.

Finally, if you want even more data-driven insights into your performance then consider connecting up other platforms such as Garmin Connect or TrainingPeaks too. This will give you a comprehensive overview of your progress across multiple disciplines so that you can make informed decisions about where best to focus your efforts during training sessions.

So there you have it – everything needed for connecting up Rouvy with Strava (and other platforms). With this powerful combination at your disposal, there’s no limit as to how far your cycling journey can take you!

Exploring the Phenomenon of Ghost Riders on ROUVY

ROUVY Ghost Riders are a type of bot that appears as riders without a profile picture. Instead, they have a ghost icon and perform under names such as Emma, Will, or Peter. They are designed to challenge users to push themselves and improve their performance on the track. Ghost Riders can be used for solo rides and will adapt their difficulty level based on your riding ability. They also make it possible to ride with other people who might not be available in real life.
