Strava used to solve crime in United States

Cycling social media platform Strava has apparently been used to find a cyclist that twice set alight to a sign outside a neighbor's house claiming Donald Trump won the 2020 US presidential election.

Earlier this month Raleigh, North Carolina resident John Kane shared a video on social media of a cyclist first trying to kick down the sign on his front lawn, which simply read "Trump won".

The video then shows a person in cycling kit setting light to the sign, under the cover of darkness, on two separate occasions. In his post Kane offered a reward of $1,000 for anyone helping to find the person who set alight to the sign.

On Monday, Kane posted that he had received help in finding the person who set alight to the sign as a result of his original post, and that the individual's “profile and GPS, timestamped maps” of their rides from Strava had led him to find them.
