I actually created a local facebook group for our area. We have almost 40 Striders in it. Its been great for sharing problem streets and stories. @ktarullo is our OSM expert and we crowd source all the bad roads to update which help future striders.
It would definitely be nice to find other ways to connect with local striders.
The thing with “placing” is, in the current form, once you 100% you are #1 and so will any other folks that reach 100%. So, in the current process we are all the same rank at 100%. I understand what you want, and would really like to think that @JamesChevalier could come up with a who got 100% first, second, third…so on, and maybe keep track of how many times someone got to 100%
The issue though is this, when new roads get added to a city and everyone drops from 100% then another person beats out the previous first 100% person… We have a local city where we have a strider that has completed it “first” 7 or 8 times because of new “roads” constantly being updated/added.
