Add sub-Activity types: Road Bike, MTB, Elliptical
I have cross posted this into the 3 main feature request threads 1) filter segments by bike type 2) differentiate between bike type 3) add bike type, but I think it deserves its own thread as its lost in the noise of those other requests - and personally I think this could help meet the needs of those other feature requests.
When I say full support of SUB-ACTIVITY TYPE - e.g. Ride->Road Bike, or Ride->MTB or Ride->Elliptical, Run->SteepleChase, I mean the sub-type should work with segment leaderboard filtering, club setup (and auto filtering), challenges etc
The main thing I want is to be able to compare my rides on my ElliptiGO (Elliptical Cycle) with riders on normal bikes AS WELL AS only have ElliptiGO rides in our club. This would be really useful and I don't see why it is so hard - clubs and challenges can be set up with top level Ride or Run or Ski or whatever - and ALSO with sub-type if wanted. That way - normal 'how many miles ridden this month' challenges still show ALL sub ride types - but you could do a 'unicycle miles' challenge on a month - or elevation gain or whatever. When you set up clubs - you should also be able to specify major activity type - run/ride etc - AND subtype - that way a person can ride normal bike and elliptical or recumbent or whatever and have no pollution onto club boards. Clubs that don't care don't set the sub-type.
I think e-bikes should be a different activity and NOT a sub-type as assisted cycling (faster than fastest road bike) pollutes normal rides.
Finally - you should be able to filter any leaderboard by sub-type. BUT I don't believe in designating segments as road vs mtb vs whatever - the segment is the segment - its a route from A to B - its up to you how ride or run it - BUT the filtering by sub-type will get people the results they want.
