Ride Activity Pages

 

Overview

The first page that you will be taken to when viewing a ride on the new activity page is the activity Overview.  From here, you will see the basic information about the ride, and have the ability to perform some basic functions.  

  • On the upper-right, you have the ability to share rides on Facebook, Twitter, email, or your personal blog.
  • You can give and view comments and kudos. Clicking the relevant buttons at the top of the page will bring up the Social Lightbox.
  • On other athlete's activities, clicking the profile picture to the left of the page will bring you to the athlete's Profile page.
  • Clicking 'Add a Description' will bring up the Edit Activity dialog and will allow you to add public ride notes to your activity.
  • Depending on the GPS device used to record the ride, you may see the option to correct your elevation.
  • Certain values that might need more explanation are also links to our Glossary; click 'Weighted Avg. Power,' 'Total Work,' etc. for relevant definitions.
  • See your activity's Top Results if your ride has achievements - click 'View All' to jump down to a full list of the activity's segments. The map display features all the functions you should be used to - the ability to zoom and full-screen the map, change the display type, as well as a 'slider' at the bottom to enlarge the map display.

The summary panel at the top of your activity is persistent across all views in the new page - not just the activity Overview.

  • You may notice that the Summary Panel doesn't display ALL the values you're used to seeing; click 'Show More' to get a more detailed view - and show less to return.  This preference will be 'remembered' by your browser, but you can always revert it.

  • Clicking the arrow at the very top right of the display collapses the overview panel

Segments 

Beneath the map, you will find a list of all the segments recorded on your ride.

  • You can view information about that segment, your segment effort, as well as Star the segment.  
  • At the bottom of the list, you'll see the option to Show Hidden Efforts, which will display any Hidden segments on your ride - which you can then Unhide.  You'll also see a button to Create a New Segment, and to Learn more about Segments.

Hovering over any segment will do a few things

  • The segment will be highlighted in blue on the map, and the portion of your ride's elevation profile represented by the segment in dark gray.
  • You will be shown a numerical value for your segment effort intensity score (if available) and give you the option to Hide that segment from your list.
  • A Segment Effort Detail panel will open within the full segment list on your activity Overview. This panel will show you detailed information about that segment effort, including the "Top 10" leaderboard with default filters based on your account preferences.
  • You can further filter the results displayed, set a goal on that segment, or analyze your effort on that segment (more on this in the Analysis section of this article). Clicking 'View Full Leaderboard' will navigate you away from your activity page, and will take you to the segment page on Strava.

Analysis

The analysis view is where you will get the most detailed information about your ride.  As always, the collapsed Summary Panel is present at the top of the page. Click the mile marker or clock icon near the left of the page to switch between viewing your activity based on distance or time.

  • Immediately to the right of the elevation profile and the 'stacked performance chart' displaying speed, power, and other values, you will see the instantaneous values for your activity. As you move your cursor over the elevation profile or any of the performance charts, those values will change to reflect your distance, time, speed, elevation, etc., at that point in the ride. To the left of the charts, you will see Average and Maximum values for the selected range of each parameter recorded on your ride.
  • Below the elevation profile, you will see a plot of the segments as they occurred on your ride - what we call the Segment Bars. Only segments that have not been Hidden will show up here. Hover over a segment's 'bar' to see the basic details of the segment, and click on it to view the Segment Effort Analysis (more on that to follow).
  • You also have the ability to click-and-drag a selection on the elevation profile or any of the performance charts to zoom in on that portion of the ride; all the relevant statistics to the left of the charts will be updated to reflect that selection, it will be highlighted in blue on the map, and you can expand, shrink, and slide your selection from the highlighted portion of the elevation profile.  Click anywhere on the elevation profile or the stacked charts to zoom out.
  • Clicking on a segment from the Segment Bars, or clicking 'Analyze Effort' from your list of segments at the Overview page will take you to the Segment Effort Analysis view.  The same is true of the Lap Bars; which if present will be found between the elevation profile and the Segment Bars.  More on lap analysis below. When there is an active selection (either by clicking on a lap, segment, or custom selection), the distance, elevation difference, average grade, and time of that selection will be shown below the elevation profile.

Heart Rate

Premium members can select the Heart Rate tab from the navigation panel will allow you to analyze your heart rate zone distribution, as well as your Suffer Score and Points in the Red.

Power Curve

Selecting the Power Curve tab from the navigation panel will display your power curve - showing you exactly where on your ride your maximum average power for a given interval took place - and allowing you to compare that ride's peak power with your historical best.

  • Click the time range drop-down menu to select a different period for comparison, and change the display from Watts to Watts per Kilogram with the relevant buttons at the right.
  • Clicking on a time interval will 'focus' on that data and allow you to visit the activity where your historical best was recorded; click again to 'unfocus.'

Zone Distribution

Select Zone Distribution from the navigation tab at the left to view the percentage of your activity that took place in each of your training Power Zones - which are automatically calculated based on your FTP.

25w Distribution

The 25-Watt Distribution page will compare your activity's Weighted Average Power with the amount of time spent in each 25-watt power zone - to see more granularity in which zones you spent the most time.

Laps

Select Laps from the navigation tab to see your activity broken down by laps as recorded by your device (if applicable). This is again essentially a zoomed-in selection of your activity - click on a lap to 'focus' on that lap's data - and click on that same lap again to 'unfocus.'

Edit

Select the pencil icon to change the title, sport type, ride type, add tags or edit your gear. You can elect to make you ride private or hide it from segment leaderboards. Add ride notes in the Description field and upload any photos you took during your ride.
