There are so many ways to track your daily cycling! As long as your data can be recorded in distance, and synced to Apple Health or Google Fit you will be able to get rewarded in the YuLife app.

If you're riding an outdoor bike you'll need to install an App on your phone that tracks with GPS. We recommend Strava - it's simple, and it's free!

Connecting Strava to your health app varies depending on the kind of device you use, so we are going to break this article down into Apple Phones and Android Phones.

Connecting Strava to your health app

iPhones (Apple Health)

Strava connects to Apple Health to gather cycling data, this is then synced to YuLife. For instructions on how to connect Apple Health to YuLife click here. The next step is to enable Apple Health to access your cycling data.

  1. Go to the gear icon (top-right) in your Strava mobile app.

  2. Select "Applications, Services, and Devices", then from the Services section select "Health".

  3. From the Permission Status section select "Health" once more and then tap "Connect".

  4. You can then choose the types of data Strava can read and write to Apple Health, once you've toggled these on tap "Allow". Please note: you must toggle-on Workouts for the sharing of cycling data to work.

  5. Finally, you'll be taken to the "Health Settings" screen where you can toggle-on "Send to Health" - this allows Strava to send data to Apple Health automatically.

Android Phones

Strava connects to Google Fit to gather cycling data, this is then synced to YuLife. For instructions on how to connect Google Fit to YuLife click here. The next step is to enable Google Fit to access your cycling data.

  1. Go to the gear icon (top-right) in your Strava mobile app.

  2. Select "Link Other Services" and then tap on "Google Fit".

  3. Next tap "Connect" and "Allow only while using the app".

  4. Choose the Strava account you'd like to pair-up with and then tap "Done".

Now that you have Strava linked, you can use it to earn YuCoin for daily cycling in the YuLife app.
