I'm one of the velomobile riders http://www.sinnerbikes.com/ and I support this request (as many other velomobile riders do) to add a category for velomobiles. I'm sick and tired of my rides getting flagged for no other reason than that I am faster with my velomobile. Making a separate category for velomobiles is clearly the only satisfactory solution for all users. Then one can default to the own category and everybody can be happy users of Strava. For us velonauts, we finally get rid of the unfair advantage of those pesty light road bikes on every climb ;-)
The suggestion from Strava support is to set my rides to either "workout" or "private". This defeats the whole idea of Strava! We as velomobile riders also want to share our achievements with friends.
