Better ways to handle MTB Shuttle/Uplift days/Multi transport activities

Would be great if it was possible to not include parts of your activity that are paused, or to be able to select areas to not be accounted for in your mileage and elevation data.

For example, MTB Uplift days where the only data you want collected is the riding sections downhill not the transport back up to the top. Even if you pause your GPs/Phone Strava will still fill in with a straight the difference between your paused location and restart location, adding extra mileage and elevation data.

Other examples would be using a ferry crossing or train journey on a commute/ride.

 

The only way around this is do a new activity for every new start, which when doing 10+ runs a day means a lot of rides added to your total and news-feed!

A feature to hide parts of your activity would be ideal, similar to the way you select sections of a activity trace to make a new segment

  • Not having to make a new activity when picked up by the shag wagon because of a flat and deposited back with the group would be nice. I  have to either delete a whole ride or leave KOM for a car segment. Multiple shuttles could be edited too.

  • I rode the ferry as part of a ride... it turned a 50-mile (20+30) ride into a 60-mile ride and threw off the speed and other data. GPX can group trackpoints into distinct track segments <trkseg> which should be able to easily handle this.

  • Can someone please tell me how to remove a segment from a ride after the ride is recorded. A got a cycling KOM while I was in the car and would like to remove it.

  • Yes please, we need a way to mark climbs as having been a lift/shuttle/gondola. With the number of us asking for this feature, how is this not a thing yet?

  • On a long supported ride yesterday I was shuttled for a section which has turned me into KOM for 3 segments. I am certainly NOT the KOM in these cases and want to have them removed. How can I do this?

    Feeling pretty lousy about this.

     

    Thanks

  • I'm in the same boat having taken a shuttle for part of a ride.  Do I have to delete the whole ride to set the record straight?

  • this software glitch also gives some riders huge amounts of elevation gains for a wk, eg 1 rider in our club had 13000m gain, using gondola ride, even if he paused the software filled in his elevation gains? no fix for this?

  • I see all similar comments but no reply. You would think if a ski app can figure out how to eliminate the lift, Strava would have by now. Its been 5 yrs Strava, whats up???

  • Time for Strava to finally implement this. It would be so frickin easy, they already basically do it for skiing. You could just select Downhill Mountain Bike as the activity type, and all downhill segments count and uphills would be cropped out or something like that.
