Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories, she also coaches mountain biking and when she's not busy with all the above she's serving coffee from a horse trailer!

Surely the most popular update has to be making your feed available chronologically again?

A very useful feature, even if it's just to clip the faff before/after a ride. 

And who uses sensors connected to their phone to record rides? Noobs and choppers, that's who.

Some people just want to record their rides and aren't interested in sensor data at all so it's no great loss that they've not fixed the Bluetooth sensor issue.

I ride with quite a few mountain bikers that regularly just set the app going and don't own a GPS device.... probably very much a MTB thing though I reckon.
