Stats are gonna be weird as we deal with Strava’s new subscriptions model.
As a cyclist in New York City, you probably spend a lot of time riding around Prospect Park or Central Park. Now there's a leaderboard for that.
This brings up an important point: NYC is home to the most diverse community of cyclists in the world but they're not all on Strava. So take these rankings with a grain of salt because the true lap leaders have been out there for decades.
Local Legends counts the last 90 for ton of random segments. The Most Laps goes all the way back to when you joined Strava and only counts the segments that matter.
Technically, any Strava user can sign up but it probably helps if you ride laps in Prospect Park or Central Park.
This site works best for paid Strava subscribers. If you're a free Strava user, sign up anyway! Strava doesn't give us as much information about your rides, but we're making the best of it.
The Most Laps was conceived, designed, and built by Josh Kadis, a cyclist, web developer, and product manager from Brooklyn.
"At first, I just wanted to use the Strava API to count all the Prospect Park laps I'd ridden. Then I quit my job and had some time on my hands, and things went from there..."
When you sign up, you authorize The Most Laps to access your Strava data. Then we look back through your past segment efforts and calculate your all-time, yearly, and monthly totals, and the most laps you've done in a single ride.
Whenever you have a new ride on Strava, we automatically count the laps and add them to your stats.
Nextjs, a bunch of Node stuff, and MongoDB. If that's what you mean.
There's no page on The Most Laps that "knows" if you're logged in. To find the public page with your stats, click the Riders link at the top of the page and search for yourself.
From your Strava profile, we store your user id, first and last names, a link to your profile photo, and your email address. (Note: If you signed up after January 15, 2019, we don't have your email address.)
We don't share your personal info with anyone. Why would we?
Private rides (or "activities" in Strava's technical terminology) are included in your total stats. However, information that could identify any specific ride is never displayed on the site.
Yes, no problem. Email us and we'll take care of it right away.
If you revoke access in your Strava settings, your data will be removed from the site automatically. If that doesn't happen, email and we'll fix it right away.
