Ability to share private routes

I have some private routes, but I want to be able to share them with a few close friends. If I send them the link, they can't view the route (as expected). Would be nice if there was a shareable link/option I could send them (e.g. an unguessable long URL).

  • I have the same need - I want to be able to share with a couple of users in Strava but don't want the world to see a) that I've planned a route or b) the route I have planned. Any updates on this feature being available please?

  • Original suggestion is from fall of 2014. Has there been any consideration to implement this.

    I to would like very much to see this feature.

  • I need this feature. I thought Strava was social. What with idiotic land mangers now crucifying mountain bikers for being within 5 miles of an unauthorized trail, it's time for me to keep my riders private, save for a few select friends. We should also be able to make private groups/team pages. Oh, and component alerts ("You have ridden 100 miles on your RockShox SID Solo Air. Time for service."). You can do that for shoes, but not for bikes. Go figure. Strava engineers have their work cut out for them.

  • Just putting another vote in for this.  Strava really is best for sharing stuff in a small community of people who know each other in real life,  It's not like other social media in this respect.  I wish the company would take this to heart, as it's a special and unusual characteristic.  It's a shame that they seem to be trying to turn it into facebook.

  • Agree absolutely with this. Why no response from Strava, far less any action? The ability to share a private route with selected other members is clearly wanted, clearly useful, provided by other similar sites, and should be relatively easy to implement. Why not do it? At least why not answer?

  • I am ok with having private/public routes. I would just like it if i could make a public route without it being announced on my feed. Is that really necessary? Who cares who made what?

  • I will use RideWithGPS for route sharing in future. 

    On Strava, the choice of Public or Private with nothing in between simply doesn't offer granular enough control.  My friends would rather not have their home locations exposed for public view, for example.  

    Ability to share a private route with Strava contacts is what's needed.

     

    Thanks.

  • It would also make sense if a private route could be selected for an event in a private Strava club.

  • Same here. As someone above says, "more than 3 years on from this request and the frustration is still here." Why, Strava? Why, why, why?  Please, make it right :)

  • Hello Strava. Why hasn't this been addressed? I am creating a race route and do not want the public to see, but need my co promotors to see it.

     

    Please help

  • @Bhupinder Singh - as far as I know that doesn't work with private routes. The other person will not be able to see it. Unless that has changed.

  • Pretty damned ridiculous that this isn't an option. Almost makes me want to get rid of premium.

  • I would love for my husband to be able to share his private routes with me before he heads out for his century rides. He is often heading out of cell phone range, and it would be nice to be able to retrace his route should I (heaven forbid!) have to go looking for him.

  • How is this STILL not a thing?

    Thanks to everyone else above for the suggestions of other apps which DO allow this.

    FFS Strava - this isn't that hard. You've got users. They're in groups. How about just a "share with group" feature or something?

  • I would use this feature often as well. Almost always I create private routes. One reason is that most of my routes start where I live and I do not want everybody to see this. Nevertheless I want to share particular routes with particular friends.

  • Me too! I have routes which I want to share with just a select few and not the world.

  • This is still a burning issue. I would like to keep routes private and then share with a limited group, who I actually would be invited to join. What I miss is the share button even when it is stored as private.

  • Come on Strava. I just made my first two routes and had to make them public to share which made me have to modify them slightly. Seems like a one click fix....What's the problem? Just simply put out a warning when someone tries to share a private route. Or better yet add a friends section.

  • Same here. Sharing private routes/rides would be great. I have to export as GPX to share and to be useable to many I have to use a competing service like Endomondo.

    I have private rides because they might feature sensitive areas that should not be public, or there is a section of the ride that gets flagged due to bad gps data or (as a mountain biker*) conflict with a road segment when in an uplift van (for example). Though I can request segments are unmatched but it takes a lot of effort and then time for the rest (also see previous suggestion we can unmatch segments ourselves to make this much easier). It's easier just to give up and mark it private, but I still want to share it with friends.

     

    * - also see previous request for mountain biking to be distinguished from road.

  •  I WAS HAVING SAME PROBLEM  FIND A SIMPLE SOLUTION FOR THIS. JUST OPEN YOUR ROUTE YOU WANT TO SHARE. COPY THE LINK IN THE ADDRESS BAR ( WHERE WE TYPE WEB ADDRESS) THEN SEND IT TO WHOM YOU WANT TO SHARE VIA TEXT MESSAGE, WHATS APP .ETC ETC.

     

    HOPE IT WILL SOLVE THE PURPOSE

  • Hi folks,

      I perform this task by exporting the route to TCX, emailing it to my riding partners who import (Upload) the route into their Strava routes.  :-)

    Not ideal, but it does the job.

  • Would also like to share more than one private route as I am trying to devise a number of options so people can vote and pick which option they want for a ride  Otherwise; I'll have to try to use the option Don Collins identified above.
