  • Hi,

    I have set up a Yara International Health and Wellbeing Club and we are doing a fund raising effort. The fund raising effort is based on the weekly time recorded by all the member athletes. The Total Club Hours is the number we are using. Can you help explain how this is calculated - I am ssuming it is using moving time as opposed to elapsed time? Can this Total Club Hours be changed to elapsed time? Thanks

  • Mark T. all eligible activities will report the moving time for Clubs on Mobile. Unfortunately, this cannot be switched out for elapsed time at the moment.

  • I think it would be great if you could list a weight vest and the weight being carried as apart of the gear option.

  • I would like an activity option of "run/walk." I've been walking a lot more in the last few years, and I've done several activities where I was both walking and running, especially on trails where I walk the uphills and run the downhills. Minor point, but it probably wouldn't be that hard to add.

  • I don't really care about who joined what challenges.

    It would be great if I could remove all the Challenge updates in my feed.  I like to see what my friends ride; however, I really do not care to see who joined what Challenge.  

    Please add a feature to filter the kind of activities, information and posts you want to see in your feed.

    Thanks.

  • I would love to have the ability to see my statistics for my walks on the statistics tab. This would allow me to see the number of walks I've done, the distance I've walked, and the time I've spent walking over the last year or longer. Based on what I've seen (on my following page), walking is one of the most popular activities on the app, which is why I think it should be added to the statistics tab. This is important to me because walking is my second most common activity on the app and for walking, I'd love to receive all of the same information that I get for biking.

  • Two suggestions I'd love:

    1. A feature akin to Local Legend, but for visits to a particular summit irrespective of the route taken.
    2. 'Point to point' segments, where a start point and end point are specified and the time measured irrespective of the specific route taken between those two points.

  • Really like the iPhone app, except for this UI issue: Every new iPhone now doesn't have a home button, meaning you have to swipe up from the bottom of the screen if you need to change to another app (at least when running). That makes it *far* too easy to accidentally stop or finish a run. And sadly, my 14.3 mile run was considered finished at 12.6.

    Would love to see the placement of those buttons to each corner, instead of immediately above the iPhone "bar", or other solutions I'm sure the UI people can come up with. Thanks.

  • On the issue of iPhone. I find more duplication of workouts among my iPhone friends than any other. Those duplications also seem to count in everything including local legend. It seems like an extrememly easy adjustment for strava to identify identical efforts and delete one.

  • Making segments available for hiking/paddling/etc would be great. This is important to me because I don't run. I use biking segments frequently which I love.

    It should be the same chunk of coding for your programmers, so implementation would be cheap on your end, and very beneficial for large chunks of the community. No more need for All Trails!

  • Luke Carter we do have segments enabled for all GPS-based activities, including hikes, rollerskating and watersports. What we don't have (yet) is the option to search for segments besides cycling and running sport types.

    Isa Johnson we already have a system in place that detects and prevents the upload of duplicate activities. Unfortunately, this isn't bulletproof and there are still ways to upload duplicate activities. However, it shouldn't be possible to record 2 activities with one device, and it's likely that your friends are recording their activities with the mobile app plus another device. Sometimes athletes do this as a way to have a backup if something happens to one device, other times athletes do it because they want to keep the upload that has faster segment times... Whatever the reason, we don't condone the uploading of duplicate activities because this can cause inflation on local legends, challenge leaderboards, and clubs, among other negative repercussions. Feel free to send us an email directly to support@strava.zendesk.com so we can investigate and take further action. Thank you

  • Back in June this year, Le Col x Strava had an Everesting challenge that I participated and enjoyed doing. Instead of the usual monthly 2,000m Climb challenge, I would love to see Strava introduce a Climb challenge for duathletes ie Run+Bike just like the Le Col x Strava one. Elevation can incrementally increase till end of the year.

  • How about adding an "overview" page (or section) for your bikes? For example, a page that summarizes your statistics on each bike, e.g., number of rides, average speed, average max mph, average HR, etc. That would be pretty cool!! I know Strava does something like this when it summarizes the year so I know they can do it - just a matter whether they want to! Something like this but an aggregate bike level:

    Along with the updates I've been suggesting to the MY ACTIVITIES page for over the last five years, e.g., having the ability to sort also by average speed, max speed, HR, etc. - something like this where you can select the available attributes you'd like to view:

  • The Suunto app started to sync the scuba diving activities too on Strava. Is it possible to add it as a sport, with the option to add the location on a map too? Thanks

  • Amis Cyclistes, je sais pas pour vous mais je trouve qu’il manque une fonction à la création d’itinéraire.

    lorsque vous créer un itinéraire sur route, certaines parties sont " surface non spécifiée », pour ma part lorsque je suis près de chez moi, je sais si c’est une route ou non par contre lorsque je suis dans une région que je connais pas c’est plus gênant et je suis obligé d’utiliser street view en parallèle. Sur l’application, la création d’itinéraire n’est pas pratique car elle vous fait passer dans des chemins non adapté à la route ou même sur des routes a très fort trafic.

    Est ce qu’il est possible d’ajouter une fonction pourque les utilisateurs passant par un segment de route non spécifié soient questionnés sur le type de surface qu’ils ont rencontré , afin de pouvoir avoir une base très précises du type de surface. Sur la base de ces réponses la carte deviendra très précises et les itinéraires automatiques aussi .

    Il est envisageable également de renseigner ces surfaces un peu comme sur waze en mode web

    Je pense qu’il faut également distinguer les routes goudronnées, des sentiers pour un usage type gravel et les chemin de terre .

  • This is my new feature suggestion.

    Use case: I'm looking for me earlier training pass to get the route that I want to run again. Maybe it was several years ago so it could take some time to find it. But I know that the route is passing a certain street/track.

    Scenario: I'm displaying my personal heatmap. I can see that the street/track where I was running is blue. I click on that street/track on the heatmap. I now get a list of all my running passes that included that street/track. I can now easily select the running pass with the route that I need.

    That would be great. Have a nice weekend.

  • Done a search but cannot seem to find any where to post ideas.  Sorry if this has been posted before, but I would like to suggest two types of category of Bikes.  There is no option for tandems when choosing bike gear.  - at least I cannot find it.  But in addition to this I would like it broken into two categories - there are tandems where there are two able riders who will share the weight load and potentially have twice the power output, but there are also those tandems where there is a child or disabled ( apologies if that is not the politically correct term these days)  person.  I have worked out for example that with the disable child and the weight of the bike and my weight I am pushing 140kg uphill.  I have therefore made the bike weight 70kg to allow for this.   This must be the same for anyone carrying a child on a backseat or "tagalong".   Any other suggestions  or solutions would be greatfully received.

    (Edited - I think this might have gone in the wrong section of the forum - not very intuitive so apologies - please move it to a more appropriate section)

  • I would like to plan my tile hunting routes with Strava Route Planner.

    - For example - allow me to quickly draw a route, that most efficiently covers the tiles I have not yet visited.

    There are two ways how Strava could help in this.

    #1 - show at least the tile hunting grids in the Strava maps (could be an option you could turn on/off, like in Veloviewer).

    - This would be the "MVP" or minimum feature set for this support.

    #2 - show already visited tiles with some highlight-color (could be an option you could turn on/off, like in Veloviewer). 

    - This could be considered "should have".

  • I would like to have the leaderboards extended to include activities such as walking / hiking. My current group has quite some people that hike/walk instead of run or ride and not being able to show their efforts in the leaderboard makes Strava the less inclusive in that regard.

    In addition, adding hiking/walking will allow use of Strava for events such as Walk for Good, which will make Strava look good :-)

  • Strava recently enabled the feature to see my run power from the Styd foot pod. I would like to be able to define individual power zones, the same as with bike power, to see analysis of Time In Zone, in addition to Pace and HR analysis. It will allow me to do increase training effectiveness. The reason that is important is because of the more accurate information than HR (dependent on all kinds of environmental factors), or Pacing (dependent on profile, wind, etc). An example of when I need that is on every day run analysis, using Strava as my main/one-stop-shop app, not having to rely on different apps to analyze my run effort.

  • Feature request for biking, specifically DH or bike park riding.  I don't ever want to record my movements when I'm riding a lift up the mountain.  It would be great to have the option to ignore the long uphill movement by toggling on DH mode or something similar.  Without this, I almost always forget to start/stop at the top and bottom of the hill so I miss segments or record the shuttle uphill and that skews my numbers.

  • SUGGESTION -> TREADMILL DISTANCE - ALLOW EDITING OF DISTANCE RAN

    Currently you can not adjust the Treadmill distance.

    That seems very counter-productive, as i find the majority of treadmill runs i do report the wrong distance. So the data recorded is already inaccurate - so i dont see any risk in allowing editing of Treadmill distance!

    For transparency, it would make sense for Strava to flag any areas of data that have been edited.
    AND i think it would also be fair if edited distances/data arent included in any user records.

  • It Is Important That Strava Allowed Live E-BIKE Segments

    Strava currently allows E-BIKE Segments. A subscriber can create a new Strava Segment, and if the workout was of "E-Bike Ride" type, the newly created segment would be an E-Bike Segment. That works fine.

    What, however, does not work is Live E-Bike Segments. I and brother are both Strava subscribers. I own Wahoo ELEMNT Roam GPS bike computer, and brother uses a Garmin Edge 530. We would like to use Live E-Bike Segments but Garmin and Wahoo told us it was Strava that didn't support such Live Segments.

    Could that be improved? With growing number of e-bikes, it would be good to extend Strava capabilities for that specific new market segment.

     

    Properly starred E-Bike Segments in my Subscriber account.

     

    No Live Segments in either Wahoo ELEMNT Roam or Garmin Edge 530.

  • I’ll second the request for a ‘boot camp’ activity. My boot camp is similar to CrossFit but outside and more geared toward running.

  • More info presented on "My Gear"

    I bought a new bike this year. The page for it lists the miles it has covered, but I'd really like to see many of the other fields that are captured for each activity presented as totals, or overall averages as applicable.

    So it would be good to see the average and maximum speeds, time ridden, total height climbed and so on.

    It is possible to find all this information if I trawl back through my activities, but sorting and presenting it should be simple for a computer!

     

    Thanks in advance for your consideration :)

  • I would like the ability to view my average heart rate (or heart rate zone) and pace (or pace zone) in the Training Log view (or some other dedicated area). The idea here is that I want to see how well I have been following my efforts to run in a particular zone a percentage of the time over a number of months. Many people want to do the 80/20 running or some variant of training within a certain zone targeted and currently there is no good way to track this. Right now, you show Time, Distance, Elevation and Relative effort but other stats like I have described will help people training see clear trends and how well they are following their plan. (If you could give the main zone of a period or percentages all the better!)

  • Hi, when removing a component from the bicycle it would be good idea if Strava asked for the date it is removed and not assume the date of the day. If it cannot be removed on the same day, it is wrong for life, overlapping days (and kilometers), since it is not modifiable as if it can be done when adding a new component.
    It would give an added value to Strava, being able to analyze the durations of the components more exactly.
    Thank you for your time.

  • Hi, I would like to propose a new function for segment rankings. I propose to add a ranking also called "chrono" (or something like that), so including ONLY bikers that did that segment ALONE, without aerodynamic advantage of the wake, especially for segment in the plain.

    This can be possible simply including/sorting only bikers that has executed those activities without anyone else recording same track in same time.

    I think this function is important to make understand real progress of athletes. Someone takes too much advantage to go with others, saving own energies but making good performance (not real).

    Thank you

  • A post about routes

    Has the route planner be subtly updated? When planning a route now for the bike it will not allow me to snap to any "footpaths" lots of these in your underlying maps are not "footpaths" and can be bridleways, large paths, cycle paths etc.... By removing this feature it renders the route planning for Gravel Biking and Mountain Biking completely useless. 

    I understand the need for this change but maybe give a toggle or highlight parts of the route which the route planner deems are footpaths. Then it is down to the rider to not trespass on footpaths with their bike but allows local knowledge to correctly plan routes. 

    I love using strava to plan my routes usually but with this change it is now impossible to plan properly and I have to use different software.
