Reverse an existing Strava Route

Hi,

Is it possible to reverse routes on Strava? I'd like the option to reverse routes I've ridden or created on the Strava route planner.

Regards, John

21.06.16 - So, two and a bit years later we're still no further forward with this development. Absolutely crazy!!

08/0217 - Well I've literally ran out of time waiting for this feature, having now being diagnosed with a terminal cancer. I find incredible that such a fundamental requirement for all cyclist in a cycling app simply isn't available.

  • While you are at it, add an ability to double the ride. Today I forgot to track 1st part of the commute, so there is only way back home now.I thought I totally can just add  the 1st half based on second, since it is exactly same ride. I was wrong! Can't edit a thing.

  • This would be a great addition and save much route building time!

  • I agree, reverse route and complete loop would be great features.

  • I see this is a popular request and would be very useful. Unfortunately I see that has dated back 2 years.

  • Reverse route would be good, remember to switch round-abouts, one way streets and turns round..

  • Sorry but very poor Jeremy, over two year's development time, 118 common requests for the same. As far as I can tell the Beta mode hasn't changed at all in that time.

  • How about just the trivial version that might not fix "one way" street issues and move lane to other side of road.  Most of the time this won't matter.

  • I'm a programmer, it would literally take 2 minutes to put in the code to re-calculate the route from the reverse set of points (the algorithm doesn't even need to change). Adding in the UI would be more work but certainly not a huge change.

  • How has this not been implemented yet!? Such an obvious feature, and how hard can it be!? Really disappointing that route reversal is still not an option.

  • I'd like to see this as well. It would be helpful for commute routes, where obviously I go the route back home. But, I don't want to create a bunch of new segments. I'm sure the devil is in the programming details, but it's hard to understand why it would be so hard to just swap beginning and ending points in a simple step (like with all mapping apps out there you can reverse the directions).

  • Amazing that it is still not possible. Really not taking customers seriously....Do they read these postings?

  • This has been posted over 2 years ago, it's quite an easy feature to implement (software engineer myself) yet brings in a lot of value. +1 from me as well.

  • Route reversing would be great. One of the things at the top of the feature list for the routes tool for me

  • ... Coming up on the two and a half year anniversary of this request now, and still nothing.  A "Reverse" feature would be so easy to implement.  What's wrong with you guys at Strava?  Your users are even doing the hardest and most time-consuming part of the job for you - that of telling you what features we want and need so that you don't have to guess and waste time.

    Come in to work an hour early, bomb a double espresso, and bang it out.  Please.

  • I, too, would like to be able to reverse a route.  It seems other sites/competitors have implemented it, and enabled it with a simple click.  I know there are workarounds, but hey, facility has an endearing quality to it. (READ: members who pay for features find it nice to have those features...).
