  • On the profile I can see total miles for Run. And there is an option for bike and swim.

     I want an option for walk.

     Most people I think walk or run and I want to track my miles by run and walk  for I have separate goals for each.  I think this would be an important feature for many users.

    The fact that you can record your activity as a walk but not provide year to date stats is very disappointing  and hard to set goals.

     My year to date summary has total distance which includes walks and runs  so providing in the profile section by type of activity where most people do walk would be a great enhancement appreciated by your users.

  • On my profile page it shows my stats for 3 activity types, running, cycling, and swimming only. This is not very useful to me since the only one of those I do at all is cycling and I hike and walk for the most part. Would it be possible to select our top 3 activities and be able to show those? There are several places in Strava where things are heavily slanted to only those 3 activities and I'm sure I'm not the only one who mainly does other activities. Also, I would sure like to be able to get totals from the my activities page and be able to select by date ranges.

  • As already mentioned above, I want to be able to set custom dates for reports. Specifically, it's January 1 and I already can't really see my totals for 2020. I can't see any week I want, but monthly and yearly totals would be nice to see.

  • Please provide ability to link activities in paid accounts

    Currently, I need to download, HRM data from the Apple Watch, and download Power data from iPhone activity, use a second tool to combine the activity, upload it to Strava, delete the previous activity. All to be able to see power and HRM data in the same activity.

    I propose the concatentation of the data, via a "link these activities" button
    Or
    Allow the IOS phone app to access the applewatch HRM

    I understand there's probably some Apple privacy hoops to jump through here, but I'm hopeful they're do-able within my AppleID sphere

    If this could be done live, so it appears on the handlebar, instead of the watch for HRM and the bars for PWR, then I could die a happy man


    Cheers AP

  • I think it would be nice to have 'orienteering' and 'trail running' as a types of sport. At least trail running since it might be the most popular form of running right after road running. 

    With this it would be possible to see how much of running has been carried out on the road and off road. Currently I see only running which covers quite many kind of activities. 

    Thanks.

  • Can we have the option to add more winter sports gear? I like that feature with bikes and running.

    I would like that feature with skiing as well, as many of us have multiple sets of skis or bindings. Different skis for different conditions.

  • HORSE RIDING

    Could you please add horse riding to sports? There is no option on what to choose if I do horse riding... :(. I don't want to choose "Ride" because it means a bicycle and I ride a bike too, so my statistics would be mixed.

  • Please can we have pilates as an activity - it's not the same as a workout nor is it yoga. It isn't an unusual activity these days.

  • Show a list of all segments I've run (or ridden). I don't think there's currently a list anywhere that comprehensively shows all the segments I've run. It would be nice to see them all, instead of just a certain selection depending on what part of the website I'm looking at.

    This was also popular on the old forums: https://web.archive.org/web/20200812075134/https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/208834677-Show-a-list-of-all-the-Segments-I-ve-ridden-run-on-Strava

  • But till it's an activity for itself, should I add a manual entry as yoga or workout, to document my activities ?

  • Allow users to edit the default "run, cycle, swim" on the dashboard to whatever sport(s) they want.

  • I would suggest adding a new sport - nordic walking - to the list of activities that may be selected to customize the given exercise. A normal walk is currently available, nordic skiing is also available, but not nordic walking, which is somewhat different to the normal walk (it requires poles), is more energetic and involves whole body motion rather than just legs.

    Looking forward to seeing nordic walking in Strava!

  • It would be nice to be able to tie ride type and bike together. I have several different bikes. I use one all the time on my trainer for indoor rides. It never leaves the trainer. I have a mountain bike and several road bikes. If I tag a ride as a mountain bike ride it would be cool if my mountain bike was automatically added as the bike I rode.

  • FEATURE REQUEST - add & remove kit to Touring Bike configurations

    We ride long tours and our bikes are in various configurations from 20kg to 60kg.  Same bikes but different loadings.  It would be good to be able to add and remove open format gear, maybe just a gear option called "Other" and then it would only be recorded for the rides where we have added it so the power would be properly calculated.

    Adding Fitness, Freshness and Form to the mobile app. I use the mobile app primarily, and rarely use a web browser. 

    Thanks.

  • I am new to Strava, but an old time runner - and I would like to see interval splits able to be set for shorter distances, such as 1/4 or 1/2 miles as I often do a shorter, faster run than a longer run - or do track runs.  When I was using MapMyRun it was easy to see my splits down to 0.1 miles and give me the fastest pace within that split.

  • Fitness.

    I understand that the fitness graphs are built on a recognised model, however I have been concerned for a while that they do not accommodate rest days or 'easy' activities as part of building or maintaining fitness. Could a delay be built in to the fitness algorithm such that fitness only goes down after a period of say 3 days of low relative effort? I am worried that people keen to build fitness will be encouraged to over-train and not rest enough, in order to keep the graph level, or heading upwards.

    TSS alongside relative effort may help also. If I put in a big day of say 250+, a week later I might still be recovering but a similar effort would only score ~200, despite not having gained much fitness. This suggests that the fitness model in general is too responsive and could be dangerous if people use it as a guide - which they will, because it exists.

  • Lots of requests for new categories here and if all were to be implemented it would probably be a mess. Maybe a good idea is to
    1. allow users to add and name their own custom categories
    2. create an algorithm to internally aggregate custom categories by name (aggregate a bit loosely to account for spelling, capitalization etc).
    3. If category seems sufficiently popular you could consider adding it, maybe under a subcategory “user contrib” or “popular req” or something.

    Below is my addition to the chaos.

    Can you add a category “running with stroller”? I usually run with a stroller and depending on the weight of included children, groceries etc it’s a completely different workout compared to running without the stroller. And it would be super fancy if it was possible to specify the weight of the stroller.

    Thanks!

  • Here's one more vote for adding "Orienteering" - it's really popular in Finland as well, and marking those activities only as "Running" is really silly.

  • What: Manually adding / editing the TRAINING LOAD of a RIDE:

    Why: Occasionally I may use a bike without powermeter or for some reason (battery, S/W crash) etc. measured power data may be lost or incomplete.

    Improvement: Positive impact on power management chart (fitness, freshness etc.) as a zero for one training session effects all power training data.

  • Orienteering is increasing popularity over world. It could be usefull to have a new type of activity called "Orienteering" when you can log your races or training. It is very similar to trail running, only two diferences: the map's track must be published with delay (12 hours for example) and the segments are not continuous only begining and end.

    A desirable feature could be to upload the orienteering map and overlay the track.

  • Feature Request:
    Allow users to specify whether they care about "Moving Time" or "Elapsed Time" for imported activites. I am a trail runner, and there are some sections of trail where I have to move very slowly, for example over technical terrain or over icy sections. There are many runs where I have not stopped at all during my run and yet after Garmin exports the run to Strava, Strava shows a much lower "moving time" which gives me an inaccurately fast pace. The only workaround currently is to tag every run as a "Race," which I know a lot of other people do because I've read it in various forums. (Note that I already have "auto-pause" disabled in both Garmin and Strava, but Strava still only cares about "Moving Time" for imported activities.)


    The fix for this could be an option in the activity edit screen where you can toggle between "Use Moving Time" or "Use Elapsed Time" and save your choice, similar to how I currently select "Race" for every activity. But it would be even better if you could set one of the options to default so that it would always choose that option for you unless you specified otherwise.  Thanks for reading!

  • In addition to the first post on this forum about the Training Log, it would be great if it was possible to have a filter to choose custom date periods and provide stats for distance, elevation etc by activity. For example, I am doing a walking and cycling challenge over nearly 15 months (note, not a whole month), so it would be great to just see those stats easily rather than do manual calculations. Would also be good to be able to save different searches.

  • As a user of Strava I want to record my power output with the mobile app during a ride so that I don't need my Garmin/wahoo/whatever device for recording occasional rides.

    Given the mobile app when recording a ride then the power output of my connected power meter is recorded.

    One example where I could desperately need it is that my Garmin EDGE is broken and I am currently waiting for a new one arriving on Monday (today is Saturday). I simply cannot ride outside as there are no apps recording outdoor rides with the output of my Vector 3. It is connected via bluetooth to the Iphone (so I would need it on your IOS app here) and I can record indoor rides with TrainerRoad.So this should be an "easy" task.

  • Would like to see something like cycling dynamics (from Garmin) from cycling power meters integrated into the api and/or the app(s)

    Values i am interessted in: left/right power balance, torque and torque efficiency, starting power phase, efficient power phase etc.

    Cheers!

  • I ask you to improve your program, make it possible to view trainings reports, with Filters so that I can choose a sport and I can see my total kilometers for the chosen sport  for a this period of time (week, month, year, all the time). I specifically bought a subscription from you in January ... but even there I could not get such reports !! Photo for example...Here is every color is another sport (bike, walking, skiing) ...

  • Activity selection: I’d really like to be able to select ‘MTB ride’ if I’m setting off on my mountain bike, or ‘road ride’ if I’m setting off on my road bike. I appreciate that the requests for different bike types could go on, but it’s kind of annoying that all cycling stats get lumped together for completely different bikes/terrain/events. Also using the ‘gear’ feature doesn’t really help.

  • Hi,

    I normally edit my activities with some keywords that indicate location. I can search for those in My Activities which is good. I'd love to have a date (from / to) selector to narrow it down. The ability to export the data in the table to csv would be nice to have at a minimum. I know I can copy/paste to Excel but it's a lot of extra formatting and formulas (eg. to strip off "km" from the distance value). But just having simple summary of the columns would be most helpful. (I can do that in the Under Armour statistics dashboard, but can't search by keyword there.) This would let me see, for example, how many times I skied at a specific nordic center. Since most in my area are either pay to play or crowd-funded, it can help determine where to buy memberships or donate.
