Will Local Legends encourage you to record your commute?

With the new Local Legends feature I wonder how many more people will now record a bit more regularly on Strava. My commute is via a busy route straight into the city. I tend to take the long way home and do Strava in the evenings and at weekends. My fastest commute is never going to trouble the leaderboards as I ride cold and slow in the morning to avoid needing a shower. Now there was that one time I was running late for a 7am start on a Sunday morning, which I wish I had recorded as there was practically a hurricane pushing me up the road. I know that is very unlikely to happen again, but if I am recording every commute I might get some laurel wreaths.

Would the ongoing nature of this competition attach some people to record more? Or is the rolling 90 day total just mean you don't care? Do you record everything or just see short rides as clutter?
