New Riding Tags (Workout/Race) available for Virtual Rides

Please can the new Activity Tags (Workout, Race) be able to be applied to virtual rides. Many workouts are done on platforms such as Zwift as well as a growing race scene.

Oddly you seem to be able to tag virtual rides as a race or workout on the ios app, but not on the android or desktop!

  • Great feedback Andy, thanks for sharing. I'm sure this is something minor we can fit into our next development cycle.

  • It's now October and this hasn't been added.  You can do it from the phone but not from the website.

  • I was going to submit a report because I thought the inability to tag a Zwift ride as a workout was a bug. I generally only use Zwift for workouts so the ability to use the workout tag would be appreciated.

    Although, I can see why you wouldn't want to tag a Zwift event as a race.

  • Though I could see why you might not want to tag a Zwift event as a race it should really be left up to the user and not forced by Strava. The tags are really just for personal use and have no effect on club rankings or ytd data.  I could understand why Commute shouldn't be allowed for virtual rides, I mean, unless you work at home :-D.

  • Yes, please add the ability to tag virtual rides as workouts - for me they generally are.

  • Bingo! I would like the same... I ride Zwift a lot, especially in the winter or rainy season, and it would be nice to tag a virtual race. I am not sure what I would do with the data but it would be nice to have.

  • I almost solely use Zwift for the virtual racing scene (surprisingly better than local club racing), and very much want to see this added!

  • But hey, at least you can tag a Virtual Ride as a "Commute" or "Indoor Cycling" because both of those are incredibly helpful.

  • I would like this too please.

    It seems there is a workaround of sorts - if you change the ride type from "virtual ride" to "ride" the workout/race options are selectable. Stava then automatically changes ride type back to "virtual ride" but the workout/race tag stays.

    I'm actually quite keen on tagging my zwift races as races as my effort profile is different doing one of those to a workout and its useful for them to stand out on my training calendar.

    And "I'm sure this is something minor we can fit into our next development cycle."

  • This still needs attention...

  • Given the close integration of the two platforms, I'm amazed this hasn't been corrected..

    The workaround does seem to work (thanks @kevin!); why not make it a feature and close this off.

  • Tim, this thread is super old. You can now (or at least I can) select Race and Workout tags on virtual rides or Zwift rides. No workaround needed.

  • Is that on the app or desktop Justin?

    I still have to change the ride to an outdoor one first on the android app.

  • Actually Katie, while those tags are there for a virtual ride, it seems they're not actually "taking" in the app. I think they used to. But I'm trying to tag a Zwift ride today as a Race, and the Strava iOS app will not do it. 

    I can select the Race tag and save the activity, but nothing happens. If I go back to the edit the activity again, the tag is unselected. I've tried it like a dozen times now.

  • And, in a total non-sensical Strava-esque manner... on the website, the tags available for this very SAME Zwift activity are "commute" and "indoor cycling." So. Bad. C'mon Strava!

  • Hey Justin,

    I was able to reproduce both of the scenarios you have identified and I've filed these as bugs for improvement. For the issue with the tag not sticking on the Strava iOS app, the tag will stick to the activity but this is only visible via the website at the moment.

  • On android and the desktop I still see no way to tag a virtual ride as a race.  I can tag a virtual ride as "Indoor Cycling" though...

  • Agreed that this bug has not been corrected. 

    I am accessing my Virtual ride, either by android app, or by desktop strava. 

    1. The activity "Virutal Ride" does NOT have a Race tag.

    2. If i change the activity to "Ride", and hit the Race tag, it does not stick.  it resets the event back to a virtual ride.

    I approve this message.
