Add Unicycle as an Activity Type

There is no way to differentiate between types of cycling activity, and as off road unicyclists (a booming community) we are unable to compete with each other on segments (as it is swamped with MTB riders) and we cannot separate our own two wheel rides from our one wheel rides.

  • I created an account specifically to ask for this feature! Without a unicycling category, I probably won't use Strava very frequently.

  • as I practice only unicycling I find funny to get all the time comparisons with MTB rides (for sure my rides are way slower .... so the comparisons do not mean anything ... just noise).

    This said I like Strava because it helps me to share Muni paths with other riders (timing info has no great sense for this sport)

  • Totally support!!!

    Unicycling is the other world of cycling with different speed and applied power while sharing most of segments with bikes.

  • Would you please add unicycling and/or muni as an activity type. As these activities are both distance and aerobic endurance sports they should certainly be more applicable to the Strava venue than non-moving/indoors activities such as elliptical, stair stepper (really?), weight training and yoga. Unfortunately I have to currently log my stuff as a "ride", but unicycling in much different and does not really directly compare to bicycling, as speeds are slower and efforts are exponentially more difficult than cycling (says the lifetime long/ultra distance cyclist).

    I currently use two different accounts to keep my unicycle rides separate from my bike rides. I've thought about upgrading to Premium a couple times. However, I decided against it as I do not want to have Premium on just one account and do not want to pay for it twice.

  • C'mon Strava, do this already.

    I commute 17km on a uni. If I set Strava to record a 'ride' for my uni commute I don't get minutes per km and the time is skewed because of bicycle speed thresholds. If I set Strava to record a 'run' for my uni commute, I'm stealing glory from runners.
