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.

  • Can't believe they thought posting here telling us we can turn our feed back to how it used to work would be good enough. We need the ability to filter virtual rides and trainer sessions out of our feeds.

  • Actually I had to unfollow a lot of my friends to see anything else then Virtual rides at winter... I would be happy not to have to unfollow anybody because of Virual rides, please add filter. To ban the Zwift segments was also really good decision, let your server do the proper job without the delays...

    Cheers!

  • Last week I almost alarmed a friend of mine, because he was riding his bike in Italy in the closed covid 19 area!!!! Instead of this it was a virtual ride, but it didn't even show up as one. VERY DANGEROUS STRAVA!!people can't even see the difference between reality and virtual SHIT. I am not interested in virtual rides, so how should I now it wasn't real. This makes me angry and feeling betrayed. I allmost called him to warn him that it is illegal to go out on the street.

  • How much longer?

     

    It's like looking at a leaderboard on a PS4 game.

  • Filter these OUT PLEASE!
    (or move them to a general fitness category)
    They have NO VALUE to real cyclists and make all kudos meaningless.

  • This post has been active for nearly 4 and a half years so I'm sure it's not going to change... But after 6 years using Strava, I have finally had to start removing some of my best friends from the app. I am sick of looking through to give kudos to runs/rides and seeing fake zwift rides of made up places.

    PLEASE give us a way of filtering out Zwift activities from our feed. I used to be a paid member but cancelled that when I started seeing the feed change to more and more fake activities. I can see myself deleting the app and seeking an alternative at some point in the future which would be a shame after the miles I have accumulated.

  • Ditto to all the comments here.  Certainly wouldn't be that hard to implement.  It's just a matter of will.  One poster mentioned it wasn't going to happen because you get kickbacks from Swift, Watopia, etc. when they are promoted or featured in our feeds.  At a minimum then make filtering out virtual rides part of the paid Summit subscription.

  • Will the option to hide virtual rides be part of the new Premium service ?

  • Strava wants people to subscribe. I WANT to subscribe, but I cannot bring myself to part with REAL money and still see VIRTUAL rides. It's that simple. Remove leaderboards all you like, that is not an incentive.

  • Now Strava wants me to pay for their app. Sure I would like to see other stats. Strava wants to go back to their roots, witch was based on focusing on cyclists.
    As long as there is no option to separate stats in clubs and as long as I can't filter zwift and other third party shit, I am not willing to pay for Strava. PLEASE Strava give a F.cking reaction, because your are ignoring about the topic.

  • It is a bit disconcerting that even subscribed members are being ignored. Like many others in this thread, I would like to see an activity filter to ignore all virtual rides (along with walks, runs, and other workout).

  • I think it's high time we start thinking about life after Strava.

    What have they been doing?
    They turned a free feature into a paid one while their usage tripled during the pandemic.
    They totally ignore most user feedback through this forum.
    We keep getting slammed with virtual rides we don't care about possibly because of some kind of deal they probably have with swift.
    Reporting cheaters, e-bikers that record normal rides, motorpacers is at the very least cumbersome.
    There's absolutely no vetting on repeat cheaters at least from my standpoint. Also no quality control on the GPS files that are uploaded.

    I wouldn't mind having to pay for it but I would need to see something in return. And here the only progress is a paywall.

  • I've got nothing against Zwift or other virtual rides, but I am getting sick of my feed being cluttered up by them. It's especially bad during the current pandemic... so just adding another vote to give us the option to filter them out from our feeds. Surely it can't be that hard to implement?
