As someone with somewhat limited vision, I'd very much appreciate if font sizes in the iOS phone app were bigger, or,  much better - adjustable. Either in the app settings, or via Apple's dynamic type. 

See https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/accessibility
"Dynamic Type lets people pick the font size that works for them."

Agreed, you should be able to select the font size in Strava, and be able to Zoom in and out to change the Text sizing (not just the map sizing), like most Apps on the market?

Strava have today changed the display of the ride stats on their mobile app by introducing the Bold typeface but at the same time, reducing the font size by about 3 pt - making it difficult to read (compared to the way it was before this change). For what it's worth, I think this change to the font (size) is a step backwards. It's a fine line between innovation and changing something for change's sake. I think the change to the font size here is the latter. Whoever is behind these recent 'innovations' - i.e. font size, weekly snapshot and irritating 'motivational' notifications - clearly doesn't use the product.

Agree. Font size is entirely too small. Difficult to read without reading glasses, which is a huge disadvantage when exercising.

The app font size is way too small. I have a friend cycling across Spain and he writes an interesting daily blog… that I strain to read with my glasses on. 

The ability to choose the font size would be a massive improvement

Seriously Strava, please increase the font size of the heart monitor. It's so small that I find it impossible to use during a ride. Therefore, I'm very reluctant to use the app. There are others that have made the heart rate much easier to read.

Agree! Especially the comments. The font is super small on my iPhone 14 mini. I can see ok but I can barely read it.
