Bike Park Mode

Please add a bike park mode that doesn't track the ups on the lift, or at least doesn't use your stats from bike park tagged activities into your overall climbing and distance stats. Bike park stats totally screw up my strava. A lot of bike park riders seem to be tracking outside of Strava as a result.

  • It's also annoying when you have a mixed road / mountain bike club (workplace for instance) and mountain bikers have 20mi and 10,000 elevation on the leaderboard because of the lifts. It would be great to detect the lifts and remove the elevation gains from Strava without having to turn on a setting. It should just do it automatically. Otherwise I feel that the setting won't get set correctly (knowing myself, I would likely forget to turn bike park mode on.)

  • Strava in general excludes the ability to have "jumps" in the middle of activities, which is a big problem for activities which contain any sort of motorized transport, such as lifts (your example), ferries, trains, car trips, etc.  In many cases these segments have distance included in the total.

     

    I wrote a Perl script which identifies and filters ride segments which are evidently motorized.  Criteria include:

    1. a pause a the beginning and end.

    2. an estimated power any time during the interval which exceeds that of the best professional racer.

     

    Then it cropped out the portion between the pauses.

     

    This would automatically fix the bike park problem.

  • This is a must. Knowing my elevation gains for an entire year helps with setting goals. I do not want to have a different record for every run. I imagine that would be very annoying to my follower's dashboard.

  • Bike park, just like how Alpine Skiing is done except for bikes, would be perfect.

  • UPVOTE.  Hard to believe Strava doesn't already have this feature.  So annoying, this isn't rocket science people.  Just add an activity "Downhill Biking" and update your workflow to automatically nullify all elevation gain from that activity.

  • You can chop up an activity then trim out the lift rides. But this is tedious. I used to do it after every bike park ride... but the more I ride park, the less likely I am to do this. 

    I would definitely like to see a lift mode feature. It would also make Strava a viable option for skiers and snowboarders to track their activities since we use the same lifts.

  • +1 from me as well. I'd love to see a bike park option

  • Is there Strava support for chopping?

    I already have Perl code which chops FIT fies using the following approach:

    1. divide activity into parts separated by stationary periods.  If a rider is getting into a car or train there will be a pause, assuming he's not like Danny MaCaskill or something.

    2. check each segment for sub-segments which exceed a reasonable bike power-duration curve using either measured or approximated & smoothed power

    3. if there is a sufficiently long violation of a reasonable power-duration curve, clip out the portion between the pauses

    I have used this on my own data and it works quite well.  However, I have no GUI/web support for it.   Strava could trivially implement my algorithm.   There was a time when I thought it would be a lot of fun to work for Strava, but even if (longshot) they had offered me a job, it became evident their focus was on scaling the user base and optimizing existing functionality at scale rather than implementing new features.  The features other than route finder have been relatively static for at least 5 years now.

  • Strava's lack of support for this is mind boggling. Just set up a separate DH bike category just like skiing so the elevation doesn't count towards your bike total for the year. I would be fine if the entire category was considered separate from bike- leave the milage out too if it's too complicated. This would be so easy to do!!!

  • Strava now handles alpine skiing much better, it seems they could simply copy that logic over to something called "Bike Park" and it would be done!  it has a count of runs, the vertical.

    Honestly when summer comes around I think I will use the "Alpine Skiing" mode to track bike park rides.  it would avoid me having ridiculous climbing metrics for the lift rides.

  • Wow, I'm quite annoyed that Strava has a viable skiing feature and still no bike park support. I've already stopped using Strava but so many others could still benefit from this.

  • Hey strava, let's make this a thing with your push to making the service better by charging for once free features.

  • Sounds like there might be a gap in the market here guys, should we get together and see about taking some of the market share? Sounds like we already have people here willing to do the work...

  • Still no specific mode for Bike Park?

    We need it!

  • Strava you keep taking away features from Free users. Please add one this time. A 'Bikepark Mode' that discards chairlift rides is one we've been needing since day 1. Thank you

  • Doesn't have to be a free feature, as I pay anyway for Strava. Still a big pain that this feature is missing!

  • Somewhat ridiculous that you can use Strava for downhill skiing but not mountain biking at a bike park (in the form of a separate activity type or just an algorithm a la @Daniel Connelly applied to all bike rides).

    It's been disheartening to see Strava, which began as a cycling-specific application, treat cyclists as less and less of a priority every year. I started paying for Strava this year with the hope that this might change.
