Import GPX files as a Strava Route

Lots of routes built on the sites, would like to import to route builder section and not recreate them all.

  • The problem with the 'Create from activity' workaround is that the Route Builder messes up the original track from the GPX file. It still tries to find roads even in the manual mode with 'Use popularity' on or off. Personally I gave up and will use some other app for the next ride outside city. Looking forward to seeing this fixed though :)

  • I would like to upload a GPX route for the South downs way as I will be cycling it in August. I have downloaded the GPX file and amended it using Aiden's suggestion above (Load into RunKeeper and export and then load into Strava, unfortunately it has now gone from 96 miles to 111, it also appears to have a lot more road work rather than following the south downs way which is primarily off road.

    Please can you advise if there is anything that I can do to load the file in correctly?

    Thanks.

  • Yeah need to add this ability.  Every event I've ever been in provides the route and I'm forced to use a competing product to navigate.  Hate it.

  • Alexandre and Chris - It is indeed true that the current Strava Routes feature is dependent on the basemap, and when loading an activity into the Route builder it is for now necessary to find the "best match" for that route within our basemap.

    We understand that this may not provide the desired results, and that there may be map errors.

    Please remember that we have a system for fixing map errors and improving our basemaps. In the bottom corner is a small exclamation point icon. You can use that tool to report errors.

    Thanks to everyone for your feedback! Undoubtedly, this will help us continue to improve our Routes feature.

  • I don't have a lot to add. I only looked at the route feature in Strava at all because I had a GPX of a popular sportive I wanted to follow with some friends. Routes are no use to me without this feature.

  • I'm wondering that an essential feature like importing a gpx file (without time) is not implemented.

    Ok the workaround via an activity works but It is not possible to edit the route.
    Therefore this feature has no value for me at this time, sorry.

  • I'm planning a long route for this summer (my first one) and I found Strava

    My experience with strava:

    - Registered at web site.

    - Tried to upload the massive GPX info I've got for the route (1200 Km, info detailed for each stage)

    - Found imposible to import, so Strava became useless for me.

    - Uninstalled.

     

    Best Regards.

  • You CAN import routes into Strava. I did it with my MAC.

    1) Take the .gpx file and open it with, for example ADZE, which allows you to edit gpx files. 

    2) In ADZE (or any other similar program) select the route you are interested in and then choose: "rewrite timestamps" in the "Selection" menu. This operation makes your gpx file compatible with Strava Activities.

    3) Import the saved gpx file as an Activity in Strava.

    4) Create the Route from the new activity

    5) delete the activity

    hope it helps :)

  • Enough of all the fudging and finding convoluted ways of importing gpx data! This thread started in March, so will it be this season or next year when this basic feature is added. Shameful lack of  response from Strava which is pity as it's a great app in many other respects.

  • Thanks for all your continued feedback! 

    I completely understand that the current workarounds are tedious and may not work for everyone. It's clear me that a GPX import feature deserves a place in our Route Builder, especially based on all your input here. 

    The Route feature on Strava is by no means finished, and development is still in progress. We are always fixing the underlying base map to fix mapping errors, and have a list of other improvements we'd like to make, like allowing a Route created from an Activity to be edited. I believe adding GPX importing is on this list. 

    Thanks for your patience as we do our best to further develop Strava Routes and work this feature request into our roadmap.

    This needs to be a priority

  • I desperately need a bulk import of GPX files to continue using Strava.

    I found a great Android app for $3.00 to export all 866 of my Endomondo activities, it's called Exportmondo (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.scrapeleton.exportomondo&hl=en).

    I'm not about to import them into Strava one at a time though. Considering the subscription for Strava is 2x that for Endomondo a bulk import would go a long way toward bringing me over to the Strava tribe.

  • You can import GPX routes into Strava, though it takes a few steps.

    1) Upload the GPX file manually (as if it was a ride you've done)

    2) Select private when saving

    3) Open the ride, on the "spanner" menu select "Create Route" this will load the route into the route editor.

    4) Save the route

    5) Job done,  you can now delete the imported ride so it won't appear in your ride history

    I'm a premium member so I've not been able to check if this works with the free accounts.

  • @Rick Harris, And now try that with a trail route. Fail. Been there, done that, tried the manual mode to no avail. Job done? YMMV.

  • @Alexandre P    The Strava route planner does not support trial routes very well,  that's a different issue to importing.

  • I use Strava for all my activities and would prefer to use it over MapMyRide.  However, whether we like it or not, MapMyRide has been in existence for a long time and offers a boundless number of existing routes.  It would be truly great if I could export a .gpx file from MapMyRide and import it to Strava as a route, but right now I can't do that.  After reading the above I think I understand why.   I also understand why time data would be required in order to create an activity, but I do not understand why time data is necessary to create a route.   To me, a route is essentially just a map, where time is irrelevant.  Am I missing something?    

    For now I can use a combination of Strava and MapMyRide, but it would be nice to keep everything in Strava.  I think you'd definitely pick up some more users by offering the ability to import .gpx routes from MMR, and you'd make your existing users happier!

  • This is a really frustrating and fundamental omission.  I'm stunned that it's not considered core functionality.

    I have a race route I want to load into Strava but as it includes 'non-road' sections it garbles it

     

    Please do add this feature as a priority

     

    At the moment I'll keep on using Garmin for this purpose

  • This would be very valuable feature to have. There are many existing routes as GPX files, and redoing them manually in Strava's Route Creator is unnecessary, manual and error-prone work.

  • As many may agree, the MapMyRide route creator is still much better than the Strava one which is of course still in Beta so no worries there.

    However, Strava has been around long enough and has a large enough pull of cyclists and CHARGES ENOUGH for it's premium that it should be able to accept just a few coordinates?!?!?!

    And since I will continue to use the MMR route builder for its superiority and clarity of hill classifications etc. and many people here have made clear that they have other reasons for importing GPX files without time data like others' maps, race routes and Garmin compatibility, I imagine this is one of the most important and sought after omissions from the service.

    All I can say is I'm glad I'm not a paying customer...................

  • Need this feature as well as I have plenty of routes on other sites like gpsies.com, which I'd like to transfer to Strava.

  • I have given up on using Strava for when I want to track routes - importing the GPS data is a pain and when you can do it, the route builder then screws it up anyway. It may work well for roads but it is useless for any off-road (i.e. trail running / mountain biking) routes!
