Hide Commutes from the Activity Feed but still count towards my stats

I would like this feature because nobody is interested in my twice daily commute, except me. I would still like it to count towards my total mileage and if I happen to do well on a segment then that should register too. Currently, if I mark a ride as private then segments don't count which seems unfair.

Alternatively maybe somewhere in the Strava settings there could be a "Hide other people's commutes" option?

  • I 100% agree.  want to be able to hide people's commutes 2x day, but have the mileage still count toward my personal total miles/elevation per year.  also should still be able to count towards challenges -- you are still riding!!! just not showing the annoying 6 mile commute 2x a day in people's feeds.

    The hide other people's commutes seems like a good idea.

  • This would be a great feature. Still want commutes for mileage and city data (I've read it can be used for planning purposes) but do not want to spam followers.

  • Hey Strava - is this ever going to be implemented. I am sure my followers are sick and tired of looking at my twice daily commutes.

  • I could NOT agree more!  Need the "commute" button to be more useful; really dislike that my short rides clog the feed but want them to count.

    @Strava - please make this happen!

  • Same. I totally agree. The only time someones commute should show up is if they have done it more than say 50 times, and they get a PR. Then yeah... of course brag to all my friends. I'm just going to record it manually until you get it fixed, because it must be annoying to see my same route ever single day.

    Option like: hide commutes (of others) in feed would be nice.

  • Fantastic ideas here.  I do four short rides a day and am sure its annoys the hell out of my club mates.  Hide others commutes looks like a winner.

  • Has this feature been implemented yet?

    If not - is there any idea of when it will be available?

     

    Thanks!

  • Come on Strava - can you please wake up on this - just get the commute button to work ?

  • I've been watching this thread for years... love Strava but it's my number #1 issue.

    No update Strava? What would it take to even get a response to this thread? Direct Action?

  • So Strava - How many more people do we need to get to comment for Strava to make a small update to their next release. What was the purpose of adding a commute button in the first place if it wasn't for this?  Everybody has the same issue and wants the same solution.

  • Any update here?  I don't want to publicly log race warm ups or cool downs but I want those mile to count towards my annual totals

    Short commutes are such annoying noise. I've had to unfollow a couple friends that post them because it fills up my Dashboard. Add this feature so I can add them back.

  • Hoping for an update here. I would also like to hide my active recovery rides from other people's feeds (they're incredibly boring), but still have them count towards my totals.

  • I do 2-3 turbos a week which can add 60 miles a week to my stats - but I really don't want to bore my followers with them. This feed is over a year old and an ongoing issue for 5 years - Strava don't even respond!

    I'm a premium member paying Strava £6 a month - I would have expected this to have been resolved by now.

  • Maybe a "Hide from Feed" button as well as private. There's plenty of instances where you want your effort to contribute to weekly mileage, club mileage leaderboards, segments, all those competitive things, but you don't want to share the activity as it's just clutter. For example commutes, warm ups, or running/cycling to/from starting your daily feature run. For example I often run 3-4km or  more across town to meet friends for a run in the hills or to the start line of a race. That leaves me with 3 activities, 2 of which are of no interest on my feed, but I'd still like the mileage included in my public stats.

    Agreed, 'Hide other peoples commutes' seems like an easy solution.

    I'd like the option to prevent other people's commutes from cluttering up my activity feed.

  • Is the commute tag even used for anything right now? This would be a great feature, commute activities are really not that interesting. We should have the option whether to show activities that we have tagged as commutes on our follower's feeds. 

    Edit: Seems like people have been asking for this since 2012 (5 years!).

  • This should be an option, not a default setting.

    I just finished a ride and cannot access statistics or see it on my feed and there's no way to get it back, at least on the phone.

    At least warm people that their ride will not be recorded on their feed.

    Two thumbs down.

  • Hey! I would love it if my commutes were added to my totals and let me take segments but didn't show up on my friend's news fees.

    This is nothing new, I am just reminding strava staff that is a desired feature!
