  1. Click on the "Find Friend" button, located on your profile page.
  2. From this page, you can search by name, view a list of suggested friends, search for Facebook friends, find friends from your phone's contacts, or invite by SMS or email.
  3. Select an option and when you find a new athlete you want to follow, just tap the orange 'Add Follower' icon next to their name, on their profile page, or choose to send them an invite if they are not on Strava. 



Search for Athletes by Name

Tap the 'Search on Strava' search bar (2) and enter the name of the athlete you wish to follow. You will see a list of athletes relevant to your search terms populate as you type.

Strava will suggest a curated list of athletes you may know and be interested in following. You can view this list by selecting the 'Suggested' icon (3).




If you haven't already, you can connect Strava with your Facebook account by selecting the 'Facebook' icon (4) on this page. If you're already connected, you'll see a list of your Facebook friends that are already on Strava.
