Is social media ruining your relationship with cycling?

After you’ve gone for a ride, what’s the first thing you do? Take your shoes off? Or sync your ride to Strava and post a photo on Instagram? I’ve certainly been guilty of the latter – and then going on to spend far longer than intended checking out rides uploaded by others, and browsing through their 10-story-long packed day. Yep, with my cycling shoes still on. 

There’s no one making me do this and, to be honest, I’m feeling pretty content when scrolling on through. But still, there’s no doubt social media can often feature more heavily in our lives than perhaps is healthy.
