Remove Zwift data from my elevation metrics

Please (Zwift or Strava) remove the elevation data gathered in Zwift from STRAVA. It's mucking up my stats. 

You can crank on a trainer. You can spin on a trainer. You can sweat on a trainer. But you can't CLIMB on a trainer. And a power equivalent just isn't climbing. It's not.

Yes, I outputted XXX watts.

Yes, I spun the pedals at XXX cadence

Yes, the trainer (and my wheel) spun at XXX miles per hour (<--- though I understand this is going to be wonky in Zwift due to the algorithm calculating speed)

Yes, my wheels rolled XXX distance.

NO, I did not climb anything.

And, aside from the arbitrary hills in Zwift (made up or based on a real profile) there is NO truth behind the elevation.

Please keep it from spoiling Strava.

  • If you remove elevation from Zwift then you HAVE to remove speed and distance as well. You may have noticed that average speed on a hilly course in Zwift is much much lower than the flat course. So speed is not just "wonky", it is completely tied to the elevation that you are climbing in Zwift.

  • Please, remove elevation for Bulda's health

  • Any update on this subject? I find it ridiculous that VIRTUAL elevation counts in your overall stats. I'm sat in my living room, not climbing at all. It's nice to play a game with others but it just doesn't seem sportmanlike.

  • Did a search and found this.  I have been getting flack from my buddies cause yes the miles and elevation from Zwift are not real.  It would be nice to have an account setting to block Zwift miles and elevation data from being added to my weekly & yearly totals.  (Time should absolutely count, everyone I've spoken with agrees you should get credit for the time on the trainer)

  • Virtual elevation is not counted in the monthly challenge.  If Strava can do it there why not on my personal stats too? 

    Virtual elevation ruins our club elevation tracking. We want real elevation.

    No progress (actually regression considering the growth of Zwift) for a year!! Gresham's law.

  • When my Garmin computer is switched to INDOOR mode the elevation data is not recorded from Zwift and is visible only on Zwift. However, when Garmin is set in any other mode (e.g. Race, Train, Ride) the elevation is recorded and transferred to Garmin Connect/Strava. I use Garmin Edge 1000.

  • Any word on Strava removing virtual elevation? Seems like an easy decision

  • Seems like distance, time, elevation can be tracked, but should be separate, not lumped together.  I like the feature of tracking age/mileage on components, for example.  I want to track miles and climbing done 'in the real world,' while for wear and tear on my drive train the total 'miles' will be useful.

  • It would be a pretty simple solution to give the users the ability to include or exclude any single type of data when viewing their over-all, no? I've done over 7000 feet of climbing on Zwift in this month of January, 2018 though I haven't climbed an inch. Another issue I have is that Zwift doesn't provide a course with 0 climbing. I have a fluid trainer. It isn't a smart trainer. The resistance is what it is. Why can't I elect to not collect climbing data that doesn't exist? Even the volcano circuit, which I have resigned myself to for this reason, has climbing.This is the one issue that will push me off Zwift when my cost will rise by 50%. Its not worth it for false data. Speed and distance are close enough for me because the climbs get leveled by the descents. A fake hill is a fake hill, and I am obsessed with climbing, so I really don't want fake hills counted in my numbers.

  • God's mills grind slowly, STRAVA's tend to stand still...

  • I figured it out, went back and edited all 2018 virtual rides in Strava and checked indoor ride.  My YTD miles and hours stayed the same but my YTD elevation went from 295k to 233k.  Took about 10 min to update.  Only issue is your removed from all the Zwift strava segments.

  • If the  elevation  does  not  count, then  why  are  segments  'oficial segments'  and  hiden ones  marked  as    'oficial', ans  as KOM and  Strava  segments  of  Zwift   aproved? every  virtual  effort  counts  as much  as  the  real world,  do  justice  and  do right  make  those  elevations  count! and  make  it  retro  active!

  • so apparently this is another problem that will never get fixed... just like the FTP issue when you change your FTP it adjusts all your previous rides with your new FTP

  • Just noticed it's making club leaderboards useless... Top "elevation" rider hasn't been outside in two weeks.
