How to format your new idea and/or feedback:

Feedback that is actionable and constructive is most effective. When sharing, please consider the following when framing your thoughts:

  • If you have a new idea, it's helpful for us to understand why that feature is important for you and the value it will bring. For example: I want __. It will allow me to do ___. The reason that is important is because of ___. An example of when I needed that was ___.
  • Specific examples and details that illustrate the problem/confusion you are experiencing. For example: When I do ___, then ___ happens and that is not ok because ___.
  • Screenshots that help visually illustrate the problem. For example: Here is a picture illustrating my point ___ from above. See how ___ is doing ___?
  • An explanation of why this is important. For example: This is important to me because ___.
  • If you propose a solution, an explanation of how that solution would help you and why that is important. For example: I think a ___ would be great because then I could see ___. This is important to me because I have to ___.

  • About hiding stats from activities

    Looking at other athletes' HR, pace, power, etc. is truly useful for many users in order to learn from the effort of others, but it's something which is being hidden increasingly (specially HR).

    I understand the idea behind that feature, but hiding things should have a consequence. Strava should somehow encourage users to share their stats.

    Maybe hiding stats should prevent users from seeing others'?

  • Different activities for MTB vs road cycling!

    I'm sure it has been reported many times already, but please please please provide a different activity for MTB versus Road cycling! It would be very helpful for stats as well as for heatmaps and more !... PLEASE!

  • Training Calendar:

    In North America, please be advised that "MONDAY" is NOT the 1st Day of the week in the training calendar. The "FIRST' day of the week is 👉SUNDAY👈. As a result, your software is calculating "Weekly Totals" incorrectly.

    Bear in mind that GARMIN definitely knows what the FIRST day of the week is, along with Apple, Google, and also Microsoft.

    Please provide Users with an option to adjust the "FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK". Almost any meaningful Calendar Application has this function.

  • I'd like to see a new Activity Type in Strava for "Fitness Gaming".  The Apple Fitness Workout App picks it up from my Virtual Reality headset (Oculus Quest), but it doesn't automatically get imported into Strava like the other activities (like indoor cycling).  Ultimately I record it manually in Strava as a "Workout", but it doesn't get things like Heart Rate data and associated graphs.  The main Fitness Gaming app that I use regularly on the Oculus Quest is "Supernatural". Its Facebook (Meta) group has 61.4K members and seems to be growing fast.  Hope you include this category soon as a new Activity Type. All the best for making Strava a fantastic app! Thanks for listening.

  • Hi,

    A suggestion would be to use some tags to filter activities when analysing datas such as segments results.

    For instance, compare specific materials, or activities performed in a specific context or objective (with someone else specific, with a specific activity training objective, a race or a test...)

  • New user.  I'm liking the ability to record my daily hikes with the dog.  But I can't seem to remember to stop the record when I'm done.   I wind up driving home and then remembering. No way to edit the hike.

    Seems like an option to auto stop/pause when returning within proximity of the starting point would be an easy addition. 

    Or if the pace is suddenly >15mph

    Thanks

    Dave

  • I want to toggle between segments efforts that I performed alone and in a group.  I suspect you should be able to tell based on nearby riders.  Many of my PR's are lower physical efforts than my subsequent solo efforts but show as slower.  Yes they are slower but it is not apples to apples so it would be helpful to get a realistic comparison... "oh I see - Sam pulled that segment time because he was in a train...but when he is alone I can hold my own..."

  • Streak

    It would be nice if Strava kept count on how many days I have more then 1.6 km run in a row.

    A streak counter.

  • I would love to see two features...

    1) The option to turn off the popularity contest that is "Kudos." I would love to share and see what others are doing.  Kudos should be a choice -- especially with movement and physical health. I've made myself invisible to everyone now because I don't like the KUDOS pressure. 

    2) I'd like to be able to share the emotive spirit of the hike or run by sharing a link to the spotify playlist or song/songs that captured the run. Perhaps just a sample of the song can play or someone would have the option to open Spotify to hear the whole song.

  • Consider allowing MTB clubs to manage all segments within a trail system. As trails change (trail extensions, re-routes to due erosion, etc) it would be great if the group responsible for those changes could update the segments and name for consistency.

  • I use Strava to track all my activities including Paragliding and here I have few problems:

     - no flight mode (and it is ok);

    - GPS track corrected to follow ground elevation - this probably the main problem;

    Ideally will be nice to have flight mode with:

    - flight autodetection (moving speed > 4 m/s for some time)

    - GPX not following ground elevation;

    - Use extra tools for a display similar to Leonardo on paraglidingforum or XC Contest

  • We I complete a ride I make sure that I register which bike I use. I ride slow on my mtb and fast on my racebike.

    I would like a feature i route planning, where I could choose which bike I plan the ride, and dependent on that bike's average speed, it calculated how long it would take. Maybe it even knew how fast I go on single track, gravel, paved road, and used that data to estimate my ride.

    Yours Jonas

  • Bonjour, 

    J'aimerai suggérer une fonction concernant les activités natation. J'ai une polar Vantage V et toutes mes activités natation lorsque je les synchronisent avec Strava, il me manque quelques mètres, exemple 3000m effectué, sur Strava j'ai 2975m , alors si on pouvait corriger la distance sur les activités se serait vraiment bien.

    Merci d'avance.

  • I always give kudos to all the people I follow but a few of my followers never do. So I often wonder if they really follow my activities. In Facebooks story one can see all persons who saw the story as well as those who gave a thumb. Is it for Stava to make this possible as well. So I can stop putting energy in these so called followers.

  • I would like to request Strava to add a new Sport/Activity: Football (aka Soccer). It seems to be very useful/popular to many users.
    Thanks!

  • It's pointless to have a filter for "this year" when the year began just 3 days ago. How about a filter for "past 12 months", or "last year"?

  • Hello. Please enhance Strava to support dirtbike (Moto) riders. Today we Moto riders must chose "E-Bike Ride" and then we have mixed results between mountain bike and moto riders. Also, let's say I want to train and work hard to improve past a certain rider that does both Moto and E-Mountain bike. When I go to his profile it is nearly impossible to find segments that I'm confident are Moto instead of E-Mountain bike. You have so many sport types (even Ice Skate and Inline Skate and Handcycle) there is a very large group of us that want to stick with Strava and have it support both Moto and E-MTB. Will you please please please fix this? In addition, when you record (or start) Strava from the Apple Watch you can't select E-Bike only "Outdoor Ride" which is basic bicycle. I am a full member (paying subscriber) and would pay DOUBLE if you would support Moto.

  • Can Strava create segment recognition when you are at the lower end of your segment time. For example, if you have  recorded your slowest segment time you get a sloth, if you recorded your second slowest segment time you get a snail and the third slowest segment time you get a turtle. This would be like the trophies you get when you do well on a segment, but it lets you know when you are under performing on segments.

  • Music "anthem" feature to add on your activities

    I'm not sure which thread this suggestion could fall into, but I would love a feature that allows you to choose a song as your "anthem" for your published activity. It may be a song that pumped you up the most while you were on your run/ride/etc. Not everyone listens to music while doing Strava activities, but I think a lot of people do! This could look something like the Spotify anthem feature that Tinder allows you to include on your profile. As you're scrolling through the feed of your friends' activities, it would be super interesting to see which song they uploaded as their "anthem" and perhaps there could be a button to play the tune right in the feed to hear it. 

    Clearly not important for performance but I think this would add an extra dimension to the social component of Strava (which is what already differentiates Strava from all the other fitness tracking apps in my opinion).
