Private Segments only viewable to your Group/Club

My friends/followers love how we can compare our workouts with each other based on segments, especially for segments that consist of going UP hills.  Problem is, many of the segment leaderboards are not being displayed anymore because the segments have been flagged as hazardous by other users.  I know that I can create my own segments, and that I can label those as private, but that limits their view only to me.  My friends and I would LOVE to have the ability to create segments that can only be viewed by us.

For example, when creating a segment, right before one clicks on the Create segment button, there is currently a little check box that reads "Make this segment private."  If we could possibly have another little check box that reads "Make this segment private to me and my followers" that would be great!  Those segments could still be flagged, but they could only be flagged by me or any other user that is following me.

  • Totally agree .... I live in Tulsa and some jerk [probably a runner] keeps marking my segments as hazardous. They don't have to give their name, explain why, say what time of day, anything....just hazardous!

  • It would be great if you could have segments that have 4 settings: 

    1. Private

    2. Friends

    3. Club. 

    4. Public.

  • Great idea Andrew! I hope the STRAVA lawyers let them do something soon.

  •  For over a year now all we have heard from STRAVA about this issue is pandering. I don't think their lawyers will let them do anything about it and they are just milking us for as long as they can!

  • Thanks folks! There is a related discussion going on here if you want to check it out: https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/21510607-Segments-which-only-apply-to-your-Club-s-?page=1#post_22246820

    Sorry for the frustration with hazardous segments - this is something we're currently working to address!

  • I concur - if I made all the nearby private segments shared with my "club" which is my wife, then we would be even more competitive.  This also helps a bit with the Privacy Zone customisable radius request that is in place.

  • The hazardous segments issue is completely out of hand.  How about making it  so that I can only see my times (or other riders I follow) on "hazardous" segments?  It makes more sense than creating more duplicate segments which get marked as hazardous a year later.

  • I completely agree with OPs suggestion, more privacy options when creating segments would be terrific!

  • Agreed.

    As mountain biker I have some private trails, that were built by my friends an me. This trails should not be public, because of several reasons, law & stuff. So this would be a great feature, to share a private trail with my friends, followers or club. So that I can control who will be able to find my private trail in the woods. Please make this happen Strava Team!

  • What has happened to this? It would be great if there were 4 settings as per Andrew Smit's suggestion.

  • Agree with A. Smit. and Charlie. My Club would find this really useful as each year the club creates variations on existing segments just for our own 'winter championships'. making these public means we are clogging the route with near duplicate segments. Ideally we could keep all the different variations to ourselves, for our own use.

    A cherry on top would be if i as the creator of the segment could share the admin on the segments or transfer the admin.

  • I'm president of a MTB association, we are using Strava for our rides / trainings and we are missing the same functionality.

    We would like to have private segments that can be sharred between members of our group only.

    Because some of this segment are on our private forest and we don't want to have this trails on a map that everybody can access.

    To avoid external person to access this private forest.

  • We really need it !

    For mountain biking on private trails or forest it's crucial to be able to hidde to the others the ride but with Strava you want to share it with your friends and for sure compare your stats :)

    please do it !!!

  • Similar idea I've requested at Strava Support since weeks ago.

    I totally agree for sharing Segment only with friends or groups/club. Some Trails who was created by my friends and me are created in private wood. This possible segments are not for public view but for internal use very interested. Filtering segment by group is NOT the same and not helpfull.

    Come on Strava, please do it :-) it would be great

  • We want our segments to be shared only with group/club members and friends.

  • I would very much like to have the ability to have private segments for a group only. My group also uses only private areas and do not want to encourage/entice others to trespass and try to beat our times. It is meant only as an internal competition.

  • Tim Hanson,
    I absolutely agree with you. I am a land owner and trail builder. Big problems , trespassing problems happen when segments are created on private property. Strava needs to add private group/club segments that are only viewable by people in the club/group. Honestly its both amazing and ridiculous to me that strava has not addressed this giant, glaring issue with privacy.

  • Yes we need private segments to be shared between friends or clubs...

    also i dont understand the restriction on creating ‘goals’ on private segments.
