The Activity Feed
Selecting the Feed option from the Tab Bar at the bottom of your screen will take you to your Activity Feed (1). The Feed displays currently active friends, your activities and those of the Strava athletes you follow, as well as other members of your clubs (if you've joined any).
From here you can view an activity by tapping on its map or an athlete's profile by tapping on their image; you can view Instagram images, and give Comments or Kudos. You can also Share your own activities to various social media outlets using the Share button. Pulling the feed down to refresh will prompt the app to make sure it is displaying the most current activities. The Feed now also displays group activities - if one of the athletes you follow rides or runs with other Strava users, the activities of any of the other participants who you follow will be displayed as 'child' activities in your Feed - identified by being offset to the right beneath the 'parent' activity. The Bell icon with a number displayed in the Action Bar will alert you to any active notifications; of comments, kudos, and more - shown above right. Tapping on a notification will bring you to the relevant activity Discussion page or athlete profile.
Swapping Between Activity Feeds
To select a specific feed, tap Feed at the top the screen (2), then select between your Following feed, your own activities (You) or any of your clubs.
Entering a Manual Activity
From here, you can also create a Manual Activity with the 'New Page' icon at the top left of the screen (3). This will bring you to the Manual Activity page allowing you to set Duration, Distance, Speed, Title, Activity Type, Time, Description, Gear, and Privacy and Sharing options. Tap Cancel to discard your ride (4), and Save to sync it (5).
Viewing your Notifications
The Bell icon (6) with a number displayed in the Action Bar will alert you to any active notifications; of comments, kudos, and more - shown above right. Tapping on a notification will bring you to the relevant activity Discussion page or athlete profile.
