Not planned

Settings to hide Zwift trainer rides in feed

Is it possible to hide all the Zwift rides within a Strava feed?  It feels like it's turning Strava into a video game.  There should be an available setting to hide Zwift/trainer rides out of the daily feed.

  • I'm having a go with Komoot to see if I prefer that and I'll try a few others.

    Between this and the algo feed Strava really isn't giving me a valuable experience anymore, it's really lost its community feel.  Sold out for the dollar I guess.

  • Strava is killed from 2 sides, by Zwift and also with e bike activitys.

  • Please hurry up with this feature, I have absolutely no interest in seeing where people have fantasised about riding, I just want to see where people have actually ridden and achieved something. It's killing Strava for me - total nonsense to have virtual rides.

    "Hi Folks,
    Appreciate you taking the time to comment and upvote. At this time, filters for the feed are not planned for the first half of 2019.
    Any new information I receive, I'll post here."

    it's now the second half of 2019.  Could you please let us know the latest?  Thanks.

  • I agree with everyone here, I don't want to see any type of virtual ride or indoor trainer ride in my feed. And don't even get me started on the so-called "elevation gain" achieved on Zwift being counted in the climbing challenges, what a crock of sh....

  • I’d like a kitchen cycling filter.
    Can someone from Strava respond please.

  • I’m done with Strava thanks to this and other issues. All my sessions are now private, I never check leaderboards anymore.

    Only reason I’m still here is that I like the heatmaps I print out once a year.

  • When is Zwift going to be off Stava? Make a separate page for virtual training?  

    Thanks Todd

  • Should we flag these virtual activitys? Actually they are fake. It never happened in the real world. So is it like cheating?

  • If you’re not planning on allowing us to filter kitchen workouts from actual cycling. Can you set up the little shit with eyes emoji next to the kudos button, so we can leave loads of that? Thanks.

  • Even factoring in vape breaks and 3 hours of looking at other stuff on the Internet, I’d estimate it would take a member of your tech staff just a morning’s work to set that up. Given I’ve been a paying/Summit member for 6 years, I’d say that work was already paid for.

  • It's really frustrating to me that I still have to scroll past indoor rides on my feed. I'm not the slightest bit interested in what folks are up to in their kitchen.

    It seems quite clear to me that Strava are more interested in the zwift dollar than their paying Summit customers. I've been a Premium/Summit member since 2012. but I won't be renewing next time.

    I recently had a big purge of who I was following and one of the reasons was to get rid of the serial zwifters.

    It's only gonna take e.g. Komoot, to add a few extra features & I'm off. Others I've spoken to feel the same too.

  • This, should not be a difficult ask.

    If Strava engineers are unable or corporate is unwilling to automagically limit all 'kitchen rides' to 'private', then provide us with the means to hide these bogus rides* from our individual feeds. At a minimum, automatically set these so-called rides to 'private' and force the user to blatantly post them as public.

    If it doesn't have accurate GPS data, it doesn't belong.

  • Just to add to the request - please allow filtering of virtual rides.

  • Absolutely agree. We should be able to filter what in our feeds without deleting friends who use Zwift. This app is about getting outside in my opinion.

  • @Elle
    4 whole years are gone and Strava still doesn't give a f.ck about the problem.
    When are you ready to solve it?

  • Pretty sad to see Strava claiming:

    "You’ve been asking about this for a while, so we’re thrilled to be able to deliver a lot more control over the order of activities you see in your feed"

    https://blog.strava.com/theyre-here-updates-to-the-feed-segments-and-more/

    And yet Strava continues to ignore the simple request to be able to filter out living room activities.

    Shame.

  • ... those new features they implemented amounted to giving you back the option to sort by time/date, which I believe was the DEFAULT until they got their developers to work in an improved algorithm - that people complained about.

    It's too much of a mouthful to jam in one sentence, but I'll try again:

    They reintroduced a basic feature that they already had as if it was a new development, after having 'improved' it - instead of working on what users actually wanted.

  • Strava obviously has no interest in reacting to the needs of its customers. This becomes especially clear here, as the feature would be technically easy to implement (via browser plugins such as "elevate for strava" this can already be simulated).

    I cancelled my Premium Membership over a year ago (at that time it was still the old payment model). Furthermore, I keep throwing friends out of my feed who post virtual rides. This is partly a pity, but Strava forces me to do it.

  • @simon p: here exactly the same. I’ve quitted in January ‘19 and as soon as I can choose what activities are shown in my timeline, I’m going to pay again. In the meantime: bye bye virtual riders!

  • It would be also nice to have the possibility of a Strava club without virtual shit. Just for those who want to be in a real cycling club. Still this isn't possible....
    COME ON STRAVA!!!! PLEASE GIVE A SHIT ABOUT CYCLING FOR REAL
