Mountain Bike as separate activity type or tag

Please add mountain biking to the list of activities in the app because the cals vs speed are very different from road riding. Also a count down to workout start would be a good feature.

  • +1. Would really like to tag my rides as MTB. Hell, I can tag Commute or Stationary Trainer, but not Road or MTB. Umm, yeahhhhhh...

  • Any update on when we'll be able to log our rides as either road or mtb? I run the Broken Riders Club, and we can't award prizes for miles as there are riders in the club who also ride road - and they're nothing up over 200 miles per week! It just skews all the rider leading order. So, any news of an update?

    By the way - thank you for developing such a great product and changing riding forever!

  • One reply to so many requests? I'd like to +1 this idea, but is anyone listening?

  • There is a definite need for this feature to be added as Mountain Biking and Road biking are very different when it comes to average speeds and overall distance covered. This makes some of the comparisons within clubs/groups or challenges meaningless. It would also enable a more specific search when looking for routes etc.

    I find it odd that there are three different categories for skiing but only one for cycling when it seems that the origins and focus of STRAVA is in cycling. Cmon Guys. Listen to all these requests and make a great product even better.

    I note the reply from Elle Anderson but I have always attached a mountain bike to the activities but they still show as "Ride". I have added a road bike as well now and will see if that enables this feature. Even if this worked it is not the solution that so many people are requesting.

    Thanks and regards

  • Also having the same problem as everyone else here.  I added my MTB to the gear list, but when I edited my activity and chose the MTB the calorie count and output did not change.  I know I am burning more than 400 calories on a super tough and hilly 7 mile MTB ride where my clothes are soaking wet with sweat afterwards.  That simply would not be the case if I were riding road for that same distance.

    Yes, please add a mountain biking distinction for segments and as a different mileage class.

  • Many thanks to take into account our requests. MTB is not road. These activities, even they are both  realized with a "bike"  are not comparable.

  • I like the OP agree Mt. Biking should be a separate activity. With Segments simply labelled as 'Road Segment' or 'Off road Segement' as we do use both after all!

  • I agree that Mt. Biking should be a separate activity. Additionally, it would be great to have a choice under mountain biking to indicate that it was bike park/shuttle. Then, for bike park/shuttle, I would like it if Strava would automatically NOT count the elevation of my ride, as the elevation was all gained on a chairlift, for example.

  • Road and mountain biking are as different as hiking and running.  Comparing the two side-by-side is just ridiculous--40 miles is probably average for a mountain biker's week, but it might be one ride for a road bike. I suggest you work on splitting the two in the near future. We're different folks altogether and so are the rides.

  • Why doesn't every one just use the "Submit A Request" button at the top of the page and flood them with the same request.
    Maybe then someone from Strava will actually listen?

    I'm pretty sure the develops/app designers don't read this page.

  • Less about bike types, more about ride types. When I post a ride there's an easy drop down to say whether I've done a ride or run. If I can pick MTB and anyone doing road can pick Road, then we can filter the leaderboards and challenges based on that. It doesn't matter whether the segment is trail or road, so long as if I filter by MTB I'm only seeing MTB rides on the leaderboard. Same goes for challenges. I like joining them, but the top thousands are all roadies who've done tonnes more mileage than I could ever hope on an MTB, and yet I've probably burnt as many calories in the process.

  • Agree... Please differentiate between road and mtb, give us an option to select the type of bicycle and to make mountain or road segments...

  • I saw the most recent comment by Strava Support.  Just start with the basics, be able to say you're Mountain Biking.  That would also allow logging on of Mountain Bike segments that users can then search for and/or filter.  The alternative is that you end up with dedicated apps like MTB Project that are creating user generated libraries of MTB trails/tracks.  When you looking at the MTB community vs. the unicycle community in terms of Strava use I'm pretty sure it's easy to prioritized where the engineering/development hours should go into the product roadmap.  You can worry about the nuances of calorie burn down the road.  My two cents.

  • Come ln Strava, it would be so easy to add as a feature!

    How can I be compete with road statistics when I go MTB!

    You should absolutely add this ASAP. 

    And also, add support for swim please,  there's a lot triathlets out here, and also recent integration with Suunto Ambit3 sport watch really needs it!

  • After doing extensive "segment explore" research in a new area I showed up at a single-track trailhead with my roadie.

    There are now multiple threads angling for essentially the same things -- whether it be designated by segment surface type, leaderboard bike type, or activity ride type (or all 3) we NEED a way to distinguish between Road and Mountain biking. Hell, we can choose between 4 types of skiing and 2 types of skating... why is "cycling"  still our only option on a site built around bicycling!?!

  • Oh... looks like I already "suggested" the surface type distinction: https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/23368039-Classify-Segments-as-Road-or-Trail-Segments

    How did I forget? Oh, right. That was 2 years ago...

  • Yes please! I would like the functionality on strava to be able to designate a ride as a mountain bike ride or a road ride. Similar to how you can switch between cycling and running on Strava currently.
    1km on a mountain bike on a dirt trail is generally more effort than 1km on a road bike, it would be great to distinguish between the two.
