Released in 2009, social fitness platform Strava has established itself as a go-to name in the fitness community, with both free and paid offerings, which aims to enhance people’s routines with more stats on their cycling and running workouts. One of the coolest things that have worked Strava’s way is that its free app runs without any ads hampering the experience. Strava Summit, the platform’s paid version, is also available for those who’re looking for more features such as heatmaps or goals.

All the stats on the Strava app are available both in both Metric as well as Imperial units. While the former is more popular and widely used globally, the latter is still used in USA, among a few other places. Here is a short guide to help you change the system of units on the Strava app from kilometres to miles (metric to imperial) or vice-versa.
