  • Reposting a site shared by a few users below: 

    http://gotoes.org/strava/Combine_GPX_TCX_FIT_Files.php

    Feel free to give it a try - perhaps a similar feature can be engineered into Strava at some point, but no plans currently.

  • This would be a great feature to have in the upload section of Strava. Just a simple "would you like to combine rides into one. I ride the bike park and if I don't want to get credit for the extra miles and climbing while on the chair lift I have to have 10 separate rides which can be annoying for your followers.

  • I would love that.

    I do it by hand using NotePad++ in a minute or so, just concat multiple TCX files and strip out every thing between </Lap> and <Lap StartTime="...">, but to do it using the GUI would be much better. And also doable for less technical people :-)

  • Actually, simply marging activities is a must I'd say, not getting into files downloading/uploading (unless thery are already in a form of files). Simply select two activities in the mobiile app (or web) and "Merge".

  • This thread is nearly 3 years old, do you not think if Strava actually gave a rats arse about it's end users it would of done something by now ?

    Unfortunately whoever drives Strava has their own firm ideas of what Strava is and will not change their mind to what the end users want it to be (countless other threads older than 3 years with very simple requests that have not been implemented, this isn't the only one).

    Very soon something will come along that embrace it's end users and Strava will be abandoned in droves, you can only ignore you user base for so long before your customers seek out a better product and vote with their feet.

  • The tool on gotoes.org is nice, but it ignores DistanceMeters tags. When combining, it'll just take existing values of the old files and add that to the new file. This works for Strava, probably because it ignores the DistanceMeters tag too when importing. But it freaks out lots of other software.  

      

    On the subject: it's amazing how stubborn pretty much every platform is about combining activities. Not only that, most apps/devices don't even have a simple function to continue with an activity, like after an app crashed or you've accidentally hit stop. Despite it being a popular feature request for every major platform since years.

  • Hi guys!

    Sometimes I get messages from people saying that my tool ( http://gotoes.org/strava/Combine_GPX_TCX_FIT_Files.php ) inserted some spurious point, etc.  When people send me the files, 100% of the time, I find that the spurious point was actually in the original file, and not created by my tool.  If I'm around, I'll gladly fix it for you, but I have to do it manually.  Please use the contact button on our webpage, send me a message, and I'll ask for your files.  Once I have your files, I can usually send you a repaired track in less than 24 hours (unless I'm out bike packing!)  If you want to do it yourself, here is how:

    1) Upload your bad tracks to Strava (make them private as soon as you upload so you don't start getting kudos and comments).

    2) Figure out which one has the bad point.

    3) Use Strava's newly implemented "split" tool (under the wrench icon) to split the track right around the the errant point.

    4) Export both split tracks.  From the Wrench icon, you can export GPX... or if you need heart rate/power, you can export TCX files simply by appending "/export_tcx" to the URL of your activity (don't include the quotes).  It will look like this: https://www.strava.com/activities/701883099/export_tcx

    5) Upload all of your files to our tool.  Remember, it will figure out the date and time, so you don't need to order them - just upload everything together.  Combine like usual....

    6) Make sure you select the "Randomize ID tag" checkbox if you plan to upload the combined file to Strava.

    Remember - I willingly help anyone with corrupt time stamps, errant points, etc.  It's a volunteer job, so I can't promise it will always be instant - but I've managed to help lots of people who get in touch.
