Crop or remove sections from the middle of an Activity (boat/train transfer)

It happens in my area to create a cycling route that is interrupted by a short, 15-45 minutes, boat transfer. As I would like to calculate the complete effort I have made for the day in one recording (eg if it is a Fondo) I would like to have the option to interrupt the recording during the boat trip or at least crop it after the complete route is synchronised. At the moment it is only possible to crop part of the beginning or the end of the route and not one or more parts of the middle.
See example routes below that the above could be applied.

Thank you for your efforts in putting together and maintaining this application and I hope you will consider my suggestion to further improve this great application.

  • Being able to crop out sections, or stop at one part (one bay) and start again at the next point (the other bay) is long overdue indeed as people here have been asking for it since 2014! Currently I also can't plan a route on Strava that involves a ferry as it will simply give you an error message when you want to cross the water.

  • Recently had a trip over water to an island ... it was 1 hour 15 minutes out plus 1 hour 30 to return .. My total ride over 3 segments ( home - port, boat trip, tour of the Island, boat trip then ride back home) was about 80 km's however when the 3 trips were merged manually the Ferry journey boosted it up to 140 .. all I needed was a command to insert at each stage where I stitched the tracks together that could tell Strava or any other similar site to disregard the water sections .. both time wise & distance wise. I frequently do Sunday trips that require me to use Ferries and I stop my track recording device on arrival .. starting when I get off the other side .. one of these Ferries runs on the hour every hour so If I miss one I have to wait up to an hour before I am able to continue .. but that time and distance adds up to overall performance ..

  • is it currently possible to do something like this, or just to delete a segment, GPS malfunction yesterday resulted in my getting my best time on a segment I use often, it was half my usual time, I don't want the time in my results, but don't want to delete the whole activity. Thought it would be possible but can't find how...

  • Not that I'm aware of.  Perhaps make the ride private?  That will at least remove it from public leaderboards.  Not sure about the 'my efforts' board though...

  • it append to me.
    you can ask support to unlink the segment in the activity.
    or you can try a software that can cut and stitch gps file and reupload

  • Workaround (when using the Andoid-App)

    1. Tap on End (for your tour) when the segment you do not like to be recorded.

    2. Tap the <-Button when you like to continue.

    I use those, when I enter a store, but then I restart almost in the same place. That's why I am not sure if it works with GPS-gaps too (but it shoud).
