I like cycling! I like Strava!! I like APIs!!!. All right lets make some stuff. API link http://strava.github.io/api/

Well not so fast. First you have to find the API key stuff inside of Strava. Not as easy as you would think. You can find the developer page here. http://labs.strava.com/developers/ but that doesn’t have anything about setting up an App like Twitter or Facebook or something like that.

You can find the App setup/API page under your account settings. If you login to you Strava account and in Account->Settings you add API to the URL you magically now have an API Application nav choose in the left nav. https://www.strava.com/settings/api

You can now add your application and get your ID, Client secret and Access Token to begin your development.
