Alternate routes on segments

Hi community! 

Can someone explain to me how or if it is even possible to make a segment from A to D but inbetween you can choose to go via B or C and still be on the same segment? 

If it is not possible, I hope Strava will make it possible :D

  • It is not possible and, in my opinion, should not be an option. If you want, you can just make a new segment that uses the alternate route and name it as such (example, "Point A to Point D via C". The point of a segment is to compare efforts on a specific trail/route/course, not to see if people can find a faster way to get between points using different routes.

  • Actually this happens when you don't want it..  if the alternative route is relatively close (actually not that close) then it can be accepted accidentally   Our parkrun has a 3 lap summer course, and 4 lap winter course..   many people seem to get PBs for the summer course strava segment when they are running the winter course..   suggesting the algorithum is perhaps TOO forgiving.
