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.

  • Upload GPX with (virtual) time stamps, then create route. afterwards delete fictitious activity again!

  • Use GPSBabel to add time stamps to a gps file.

  • Use "GPS Track Editor" http://www.gpstrackeditor.com/ . When the gpx file is loaded, it will ask to generate  time stamps. Save the gpx from "GPS Track Editor" which can then be uploaded into strava and a route created.

  • Installed both GPSbabel and track editor and neither of them added the time stamps ...

    Hellfire!! How hard can this be Strava??

  • There are so many beautiful detailled routes professionally made, this routes should be updateable, so Cyclisti can ride the same routes easely, have navigation and can compare there efforts excactly. Thanks in advance!

  • Thanks Sean! GPS Track Editor worked perfectly.

    @Duncan- try again mate, track editor did the job in one go. The file uploaded fine. Though agree that this should be a stock feature in Strava,

  • @ Nilay ... Found that GPSBabel needs command line input to make it work. Could not get GPS Track editor to work at all. Unless it needs a CLI too. When I discovered that, it made it much easier to plan the route. I planned the ride with cycleroutes.co.uk Downloaded the GPX file Added time stamps with GPSBabel. Uploaded it to Strava Then rode it. It is an awful lot of messing around and three bits of software. Why? Plus, I had to have experience of command line to execute the GPSBabel software, because the GUI didn't work.

  • channeling your GPX files through bikeroutetoaster also works in assigning the timestamps.

    Then you can import it as a ride and make it into a route on strava if you wish.

    Additional bonus of using bike route toaster (strange name for a site, I know) is that you can fine-tune estimated speed on flats/climbs, making up a realistic "virtual partner", or giving you an estimate of rate of completion of your route; as well as auto-created cue-sheet that may be helpful to randoneurs or others, especially those using Garmin 500/510, rather than 800, as it gives "3.4 miles to next turn, Right turn" type cue sheet info on the screen.

  • for people saying how desperately they need it - please read through comments, you can do this TODAY, just import GPX as a ride and then make into a route. If GPX is from mapmyride or other service that has no time stamps, run it through another site, like bikeroutetoaster.com, and you are all set.

  • @Oleg - As said previously that doesn't work for gpx files that include trail / single track sections as when you create a route from an activity it recalculates it to go along roads completely breaking the route. This recalculation on creation can't be turned off :(.

     

    I just signed up to strava assuming it could do this (what I thought would be simple a) task. As I don't really ride for times more for finding new routes / places, I guess I'm not the target audience.

  • Hello folks! 

    We're are working on some very exciting new features and improvements, but the ability to upload a GPX file (without time data) directly as a Strava Route isn't among them. We appreciate your feedback, but please understand that we simply do not have the bandwidth to incorporate each and every user suggestion into our product. This feature idea will still exist in the "product backlog" where they can be prioritized at some later time when development allows.

  • C'mon now Elle.  =)  I'm an IT guy and I have trouble with this being a bandwidth issue. The size of these gpx files is itty-bitty (thats tech-speak for really little) even for a ride with several hundred waypoints. If every Strava user in existence elected to upload a gpx file at the same moment, I could believe there may be a short term bandwidth issue (for the few minutes it would take to clear the queue). But seriously. I've been a premium member for a year, and a die-hard strava fan. But even I am considering cancelling for other options. Let your development crew know that without this functionality, premium isn't all that premium. Users = customers and this feature is a big one to use to help drive premium membership.  Hope to hear of a change in plans for adding this soon.

  • I agree it would be a useful feature.   I have several routes others have built and I would like to import their rides and modify them to my needs.  Garmin has nothing like this either and Strava adding it would be another nail in their coffin.  Strava has a good thing going for the most part, but does lack simple basic features that all premium members should be able to access.

  • I got tired of waiting for Strava. They are promising to add the GPX import functionality for months and there is nothing still. I have switched to the Runtastic application (www.runtastic.com), I can import a GPX easily from www.runtastic.com and sync it with my iPhone. In addition, I can pair my Garmin's accessories (I have a Garmin Edge 500 but I can have the Runtastic Road Bike app to get the heart rate data directly from the strap and even the cadence sensor. It also works with other Bluetooth sensors, it's brilliant since I don't have to pay monthly (the app cost $4.95 in the App Store). The app also give voice directions and you can export your workout to Strava!! (they also have a monthly plan in runtastic.com in case you like paying a subscription). Moreover, you can use the map in offline mode (you will see the map but not the GPS navigation of course) thus saving a lot go battery.

  • I think it essential i want to be able to upload a route and assign it my total time on a given ride of that route , I  forgo the whole segment aspect of it as an activity , it would effectively be a personal place-holder for my overall times on that route unless i subsequently rode the same route and recorded it with the strava app in which case it would be a regular activity. Its ludicrous that a route i know I've ridden cant be uploaded and assigned the time it took me to ride the whole thing.

  • I understand Ellie has a hard job here... but this particular feature...

    It's like offering jam on toast but for no particular reason refusing to allow a jam sandwich. The thought process for the later definitely came before the former. Basically Strava seem to be expecting that someone runs a route before it becomes a route... or making it in Strava. This doesn't actually make sense. I can understand why resource wise it isn't happening but there's not a way in this makes sense.

    I can't see how a runner/rider would make the feature without a gpx upload.

  • Just to add my +1 to this. I'd really like to be able to upload a route TCX/GPX (from RideWithGPS etc) and turn this into a Strava route. Often I get TCX files for races or other events but I'd like to be able to upload them into Strava. I know Strava are really busy but it does seem lots of people want this feature! 

    Thanks!

  • Also... the Race's feature... has a map of the course.

    I'm struggling to believe that the way these courses were built was by getting someone from the race to run it...

  • Did not mean for that to be bold or large. No idea how that happened.

    But this is what I mean: http://www.strava.com/running-races/2014-royal-parks-half-marathon

    Surely that was a .gpx upload?

  • Uploading has nothing to do with more bandwith, the uploaded gpx file would take the same dB space as a manually created same route. and interfacing when drawing a route will nog be so much diff as uploading a few gps points. I hope strava will reconsider.

  • In repsonse to the strava comment that they don't have the bandwidth for this feature, that's just silly, if you have enough bandwidth for recorded tracks with all the sensor data, I can (and have) import gpx files for route albeit a little bit long way around.

    For anyone that wants to know heres how.

    Import your gpx route into gpsies' track creator (http://www.gpsies.com/createTrack.do), you will notice that it has some settings, the key being the speed/pace, export track as gpx track, it now will have some timing in the exported gpx file. you can now upload that file to strava as an activity (make a note of the activity number) In the strava tool icon click create route, you will then be taken to the route creator, save it. Go back to your activity (I use the back button of the browser (2/3 times) but you can use the activity number with http://www.strava.com/activities/ACTIVITYNO ). Delete the activity

    I have also used http://bikeroutetoaster.com/BRTWebU which is a bit more sophisticated, you can get the speed to vary dependant on the incline of the hills, but for the purpose of this exercise that's a bit complicated. Oi I can see all sorts of cheating going on if people get to use these tools cleverly, but there's plenty cheating driving cars and motored bikes anyway,

  • Strava, this is a desperately needed feature. please add.

     

    While you are at it, suggest you check out your competition. They have this feature and many others you don't have. They are beating you.

  • Import your GPX file as an activity to your account.  Use the UPLOAD/FILE option rather than syncing with a device to do this from a PC.  Once the route is saved as an activity you can use the ACTIONS menu in the detail activity view (a spanner/wrench icon on the left) to select CREATE ROUTE.  That creates an un-editable route in Route Builder that you can then name, describe and save.  Then delete the uploaded activity (using the same ACTIONS menu) to return your activities feed to its original state (or leave it up and add virtual kms to your weekly total - cheat, in other words).

    btw: I think Strava's reference to 'limited bandwidth' in responding to this request was meant to convey that their technical development staff has limited man-hours to modify the site (human bandwidth), not that their servers will fall over if we all start saving routes.  If I am wrong then I suppose I will be responsible for leaking how to break their system.  Oh well.

  • Thanks to everyone for your continued support for this feature enhancement -

    And yes, it is correct that I was referring to engineering resources, not server bandwidth.

    We are still a small company, and thus have a finite number of engineers to create new features. There are a lot of factors that we consider when making choices for our product, and I hope those of you here can understand that we can't possibly do everything. Even though this project may appear to be small in size, it still requires engineering hours and design work - a project of any size will need to be prioritized against all the other projects we're considering. Please know that your feedback is heard!

  • Can't see where the problem is.
    Just as easy as described in Harriss Cook comment (2nd from top).

    Create a route (e.g. from GPSies.com) export as .gpx and import as activity. Once in Strava create a route.....

  • Thanks, Harriss, that worked very well. 

    The next job will be following the route, but that's another story.

    Best wishes,

    Ben.
