RESOLVED: Zwift activities not grouped or appearing in Flybys

The Zwift activity grouping feature has been disabled for the time being. Grouping Zwift activities pose a unique scaling issue which unfortunately has caused major delays in grouping for all other activities on Strava. Due to this situation, you may see Zwift Runs on Flyby for your ride. This is also an issue we are working to address. We appreciate your patience while we investigate possible solutions.

Update: We are bringing Zwift group activities back, however, it's possible you may still experience intermittent issues. Zwift Flybys are still disabled for the time being. Stay tuned for more updates on Zwift activity grouping and Zwift Flyby.

Update: Zwift Flybys have been restored.

  • I really hope this is fixed soon. With the grouping on Zwift rides disabled, it is not possible to interact with those i rode with (kudo, follow, comment, etc), and this social aspect was the main reason i use Strava.

  • Ditto what Eric said.

  • I hope the smart Strava engineering team can find a solution soon, this is frustrating! Thank you.

  • Perhaps you could enable the list of other riders that you rode with without enabling the Fyby feature

  • Eric has a point there. I really miss the interaction with fellow group riders top. It takes a lot of the fun away. Hope to see this fixed soon.

  • Piling on here. One of the major draws of both Strava and Zwift is the social component. Hopefully gets resolved soon.

  • Any news on this?? Very frustrating, For zwift users (that are increasing) this is key functionality! Hope you can resolve soon !!

  • I thought I was the only one with this problem and was starting to tweak my privacy settings thinking that some weird setting might have been the culprit. I hope this is fixed soon.

  • Half the fun after an activity or a race was checking the flybys, please fix this!

  • I thought you guys were on AWS. Just spin up another thousand instances. :-D

    But seriously, I'm not sure if the 'grouping' that is being referred to here is the list of people you rode with but if it is this is, indeed, a critical feature. Group rides are what this sport is all about and riders need the ability to recap and provide positive feedback to others (many of whom are strangers) that they rode with.

    Flybys is also a real bummer as, again, the battles we wage in virtual reality are just as real as the ones out on the open road.

    As a paying Premium member I'm asking Strava to please don't let this fall through the cracks

  • +1 Please solve this issue, it's a valuable feature for me.

  • I'm gonna have to cancel my premium membership if this is not fixed within renewal. This feature was one of the main reasons why I kept renewing.

  • Ditto to all the above. We need to be able to interact with riders we rode with on zwift.

  • So...I've noticed that my Zwift activities are not grouped, but friends' Zwift activities are grouped. What's up with that?

    UPDATE: On further inspection, my friends' Zwift rides show as "Virtual Ride" and they are grouped. My Zwift rides show as "Ride" and they are not grouped.  From Strava's perspective, we're not even in the same universe, so I can see why they're not grouped.  Still needs a fix though.

  • We are bringing Zwift group activities back, so you may now see your activities grouped as expected on Strava. Stay tuned for more updates on Zwift activity grouping and Zwift Flyby.

  • Herat. Thanks for listening.

  • Any up date on a fix date yet? Missing the interaction.

  • Updates please, Strava. Thanks.

  • ditto, Updates please, Strava. software is hard but it is possible to provide status and maybe even a possible target date for beta ...

  • This was briefly fixed in late Feb / early March, but it seems to be a problem again. For my past several Zwift workouts, I again no longer see any data on grouped riders or flybys.

  • I get an "Error: Server error! Reload to try again" if I try to see flybys on my Zwift rides.

    So, is the feature supported, but fails?

  • I also get an error when I try to view flybys for zwift activities. It is really useful for zwift races to be able to use this feature.

  • Strava
    This was such an important tool.
    You're now making much of 'new kudos' for the summer', but please look to bring back the old flyby system allowing Zwifters to give it. I understand scaling issues relating to mass participation rides caused problems. Even a lite version would be great.
    Please keep us informed on your progress.

  • It was working for a while then stopped again. I agree with all on this thread that this is a most important feature. I have been using to find who I rode with but that only works for events.

    Can someone from Strava give us an update in this? Thanks, Richard

  • I really miss this feature! I used to use it mainly to give kudos to riders I raced with. But it was also fantastic to look back and see where both myself and riders made their move or were stronger in some parts of a course and weaker in others. Please bring it back. :-) Cheers, Ben.

  • Grouped riders and flybys disappeared for a while for me and then came back. They have gone away again (June) and it is frustrating to not be able to interact with the other Zwift riders on Strava. Please get this fixed as I pay you money each month and expect good service. Thanks, Hylton

  • This seems to be an issue again - no other riders showing up on my Zwift rides and not able to view Flybys. Any updates about this issue?

  • Same here, been riding on Zwift with my son but he's never there in the Group activity. And because of this I can't see he's activity on my feed.
