Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I access the video offline?

What equipment do I need to use CTS videos?  

All you need is Strava Premium and a screen with internet access on which you can watch the video.


Can I record a Strava activity while I use the videos?

It is not currently possible to use the Strava app to record an indoor activity. If you want to record an indoor activity, you'll need to use a dedicated bike computer or a phone app such as Wahoo Fitness. To record the distance of your indoor activity, you'll need to use a speed and cadence sensor along with a bike computer.
