I’m in Germany and i try to finish a small city on the edge of the Ruhrgebiet. I’m running wit a friend and so far we seemed to be the only striders in our city. But with the April, 30th Update there is now a function to see the private striders in a city, so we were very surprised when we saw another strider with a percentage between us.
After doing a run on Saturday we saw, that the percentage of the private strider grew as much as the percentage of my friend. Same on Sunday. So we figured, it had something to do with his account.
After wondering a while he came upon the realization, that he had connected his Citystrides Account with both his Strava and Garmin account.
After disabling his Garmin sync, the mysterious private strider disappeared.
Could it be, that an account with two syncs enabled counts as two accounts? The percentages where slightly different, bur this could be because of him having one run only on Strava and not on Garmin.
