I would like to see a new competition replace Local Legends. It would be the 'Mayor' of a segment. I hear little chatter about LL and I don't think many people are interested in it. Either popular routes are dominated by commuters who aren't even competing or it is possible to be LL on some segments with 2 rides. 90 days is far too short and this basically forces you to take the same routes, not exactly encouraging people to ride more and explore. The Mayor prize would be for consistant riding, a rolling yearly target of the lowest maybe three times on a segment. This would elimiate Q/KOM carpet baggers and car drivers. Email awards could be sent at the end of the year to avoid unwanted spam during the year. If you are Mayor on Dec 31st you get the award, but can challenge during the year.

I am a Strava subscriber and ride an eMTB and I cannot be a Local Legend. My mate who is not a subscriber, we ride together regularly, has plenty of Local Legends. I ride off road far more that him, but as a subscriber I do not count as a Local Legend because I ride an eMTB. Why are there no Electric Mountain Bike Ride segment Local Legends? Also, the PC segment search is all but useless it matches any words in the search criteria Type in Escalator, Eleebana, New South Wales, Australia and results from all over the world, 300+ come up there is only one Escalator, Eleebana, New South Wales, Australia in the world, but I cannot find it in segment search. And how do I find an eMTB segment?
