Export Segment GPX

I see you can export a previous activity to a GPX file.  There is a GPX button inside the map that I press.  However I want to create a GPX file just of a single segment.  I do not see that same option on the segments page as exists on the activities page.  For example, go to http://www.strava.com/segments/5447153.  I would like to see a GPX button here as well.

  • That's one feature i expected as a premium user. Can't be much extra work to get it working. There are third party solutions but it should not be necessary.
    Strava is all about the segments, not the rides :)

  • this is clearly a hot topic. yes I would have expected that you can automatically export the .gpx of a segment too and I have no idea of why this feature is not part of the site.

    however, we can all create our own routes, and part of that process allows you to 'browse segments' in the area you are planning your route.

    if you wish to include an existing segment in your route, or make a route solely out of an existing segment do the following.

    1) start a new route

    2)click on 'browse segments' on the left hand side menu, and find the segment you are looking for.  it will then appear on your route as a red line.

    3)start your route planning at one end of the segment

    4)end your route at the end of that segment.

    5)save your route

    6)export your route as a .gpx file

    7)profit!

  • Indeed, creating a GPX file from a Segment is a feature thats missing in Strava (at least the pro version) and all the other tools do not work satisfiingly.

    With this post I make an official implementation request to the Strava team and ask kindly for a release date.

  • Today I needed to download a segment to GPX and was surprised that it isn't possible. 

    So I did a bit of thinking and came up with this:

    http://p729.com/c2segment.php

    Note - it doesn't provide elevation data, but it would be trivial to use one of the many mapping sites out there to take the GPX and add elevation data.

  • So what is the point of a premium membership if we can not get a simple GPX or other files for a segment?  I do a lot of off road riding and I have trouble finding single track or other pathways that starve route builder does not like too much.

  • I see no reason and have no understanding on why Strava would not enable this.

  • I can't believe that it's not possible to export only a segment to GPX! If you download someones ride to follow the route on your device of choice you 99% of the time just want a specific segment and not the whole ride with (for you) irrelevant to and from transports. So a segment export function would make so much more sense. Fix it, please.

  • Hi Elle,

    Raceshape does not do what we are asking for (I think?). We want to export a SEGMENT not  a whole course. As far as I know raceshape does not add any extra funtctionality I can't already do on Strava or have I missed somethng obvious?

    As stated earlier it makes much more sense to be able to export segments. Courses often include other riders "to and from" transports to the actual interesting part of their ride. That interesting part is very often a SEGMENT. So again make it possible to export segments to gpx (so that we can load it to our gps-devices and follow it live). Does that not make sense? Or is there a reason for why you aren't adding this function to your site? I can't see why you wouldn't?

    Regards,

    Johan

  • Find your segment on Strava, copy URL.

    Go to: https://www.doogal.co.uk/strava.php

    Paste segement into search function, and then its just to download the segment as GPX.

    But really poor by Strava to not just add a GPX button for the segements, just lazy.

  • Raceshape VPU from the link above seems to be dead now- I paste in the link, press "Get Started" and nothing happens. Have Strava blocked this?

  • @Ed, nice trick. It's still a "hack" though as you have to trace it manually. Unfortunately the route-buider works pretty badly with mountainbike-trails. The app tries to snap to roads, and that is probably not what you want in those cases. You can also use heat-maps as a guide to find popular trails, works quite ok when you are trying to find popular MTB-trails (still the snapping issue though).
    I am starting to wonder if the new Garmin and Strava live segments "deal" has something to do with Strava's unwillingness to enable exports of segments. Still I can't understand why.

  • work around for those who want to export a particular segment:

    1. export your whole ride.gpx (this will be your backup)

    2. CROP you actual ride to match your wanted segment.

    3. export the new CROPPED ride and save it with a different name.

    4. if you want, you can delete the CROPPED ride and import your full ride.gpx from the backup you created from step 1.

    5. save your cropped.gpx into your garmin.

  • Soooo, nearly 5 YEARS later (from first post) and still no option for segment download. This is nuts! Obviously this is by design. Just wondering why...most likely something to do with lawyers and risk...always does. Another reason NOT to renew my premium membership. Helloooo Strava, are you listening?

  • I'd also like to see this feature added. It's would be great for creating short segments / rides to export, add elevation to (something which Strava should also do but doesn't) using GPSVisualizer, then use with a smart trainer.

  • So when will be able to get this much needed feature so we can upload segments to virtual trainer programs!

  • STILL no word from Strava on this?

    I suppose we shouldn't be surprised, as Segments is the unique selling point of the app, that they wouldn't want us downloading them all and taking them elsewhere, but it is still disappointing after having subscribed to find this is not a feature- they could (and should) be clearer on this.

    It does demonstrate a bias towards road biking within Strava, as for many of us MTBers we are often  away from a decent data connection to access segments through the app. 

    I also struggle with their un user friendly way of searching routes- why no map, like gpsies? As the biggest of the online mapping providers , Strava should be able to do at least this for us... surely?

  • The solution seems to be very easy (surpricely)! 

    Every segment has been ridden by someone - you see it at the right side of the segment view ("Fastest Times"). Click on someone traning date (it indicates the time and date when someone has made this segment). You will "transfer" into the traning where you can download track as GPX. Of course you will download whole trainig, but with GPX file we can very fast edit to get segment part. 

    I home I've helped someone with this horrible issue.

  • This site has potential.  You can take a Strava segment and create a FIT file from it which you can then drop into your Garmin to create a course.
