Finding Friends and Managing Contacts on Strava

Strava gets even more fun when you find and invite friends. Following friends opens up a world of social interaction and gets the competitive spirit going.

Finding Friends

  2. From this page, you can search by name with the magnifying glass icon. You can browse through suggested connections, Facebook friends, friends from your phone's contacts.
  3. When you find a new athlete you want to follow, just tap the orange 'Follow' icon next to their name.
  4. Select 'Invite Friends' to send invitations with your preferred messaging app.

Connect your Facebook and Contacts

  • Connect your Facebook account to discover which of your Facebook friends are already on Strava. Learn more about connecting and sharing with other social apps.
  • By adding your contacts, Strava will list contacts that you already follow, suggest friends to follow based on contacts that are already on Strava, as well as show other contacts who are not on Strava.
