Using a saved Route to manually log an activity

Here is the scenario: I did my ride today without my phone and I’m home now. I rode my usual route, which is a saved route in Strava. Now I want to add a manual activity, and I want to simply choose the saved route to do that, rather than input the distance and title the ride.

There should be a pull down menu with all of my saved routes in the Manual Entry section so that I can choose the route I rode and quickly log the activity.

  • Hi,

    I am trying to do the same, add a saved route to my activity manually... did you ever find out how to do it?

    Thanks,

    Hannah

  • Hi Hannah. No, I didn't figure it out. Strava can't do it. It's not possible, apparently. Many people have asked and want the function. I've made a suggestion to them to add it, but no response. Seems a no-brainer. Maybe MapMyRide has a patent on it? That's all I can think of.

  • Hi,

    I'm affraid, this feature is still not available. I found the same request here many times from 2014, but without any response from Strava support. Hope it will change now.

  • +1! 

    Knowing the route will give your time, distance and speed much more meaning when you look back at it.

  • I have the same request.
    Due to problems with my phone losing contact with GPS I got strange results on my rides.
    I've manually created the routes and want to upload them to my activities.

  • For the record I also want this. I forgot my phone but did a lovely run and I'd like the map to be connected to the activity I entered manually. This is one of the most basic features of Map My Run... I'm shocked Strava doesn't allow this.

  • I just joined Strava today and it's the first thing I tried to do.  Strava - when do you think you'll be able to add this feature?

  • I'd like to do that as well, especially with my commutes to work.  Strava - would love to see this feature built in!

  • I'd like to do the same. I created a run route but don't want to carry my phone. I would just need to note how long it took me. Simple.

  • This should be a "No Brainer."

  • OK, so its not something I want to do often - its only when I have a gps issue (or user error!), but its probably the most important thing I would like to do, as it makes an otherwise 'lost' effort a bit more meaningful. I have up-voted the thread (thanks David G):

    https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/208835317-Attach-a-Route-map-when-entering-a-Manual-Entry-

    but as its still only at 291 votes - don't hold your breath.

    2 years down the line, I can only assume it would need a major software re-write, hence the lack of action.
