All amateurs bike riders use Strava. It's the perfect place to flex your cycling muscles by posting the details of your ride as you hunt your favourite segment's King of the Mountain spot. 

You can go back and retrospectively analyse every metre of your ride to find out how fast you were really going and how much better you are than your mates. 

It also gives you the chance to take a glimpse at how good some of the world's best professional riders really are as more and more begin to upload their rides to the app.

With the ongoing Tour de France, us spectators can keep an eye on some of the star riders and how well they are riding as they post their daily stage rides.

No guarantees are made as to what they share and how much they post with many riders withholding information from key stages.

Also spare a thought to the amatuer riders of France who will see many of their precious Strava KOMs shelved as the professional peloton flys through at eye-watering speed.

Below is a list of every rider at the Tour de France who uses Strava so check if any of your favourites are there.

However, with the high attritional rate at this year's race, some of the below riders will be posting recovery rides from home rather than the latter stages of the Tour.
