  • Hi, can you please make the route (to follow) you draw in the pro version lime green instead of dark blue with al little lining? All roads are blue and while cycling its really hard to see the difference.
    Much obliged, Kees

  • It's been posted here already, and I upvoted it, but I want to echo the request to be able to track gear by hours rather than just miles. This is important for cyclists, particularly mountain bikers, who want to know when it's time to bring in the bike to service suspension components according to the manufacturer''s recommended service interval. For example, my front fork manufacturer recommends servicing the fork lowers every 50 riding hours, and damper and spring every 200 hours. It would be helpful to either have some kind of note for a date of last service included, or to be able to filter my Strava data by gear (bike) and by date to obtain hours of moving time since that date.

  • Enable virtual rides to be classified as 'workouts' or 'races'.

    I can classify my outdoor run as a 'workout' or 'race', but when I do a workout or race on Zwift I cannot classify it as anything.

  • Apple Watch improvement

    A lot of apps on the Apple Watch are using apple workouts in the background. The problem is that the Strava app doesn't allow to import those workouts that were recorded to Apple Health. They are just the same workouts with the same information recorded by apple workouts but with another "owner". It's even visible that is being recorded by an Apple Watch (in Apple Health). So it would be nice/better to be able to import those workouts too.

  • New Feature Request.
    Integrate with Spotify and/or Apple Music to start with, and have a song highlight go with the picture highlight, for others to discover!
    A new music button associated with the map will generate the option to allow access to your music provider of choice, pick a highlight song, and post to compliment the mood of the activity!
    This can be enabled in personal settings, similar to the Weather display feature ---

    Please make this happen! And once you do, gift a free 1-year membership to anyone who's submitted this idea :)

  • I'd really like if you had more mountain biking content. Cycling is not Cycling. The physical challenges, caloric expenditures and training are different than road cycling. Specific mountain bike choice in activities list, MTB specific challenges, MTB awards and KOM's. And a better algorithm to root out E-bike use.

  • A lot of people want, just like Rob Fulton, more mountainbike content in Strava. Like he said, mountainbiking is an other discipline than just cycling. You mentioned a lot of reason why not to add mountainbiking to Strava because of the history rides, but within a few years there will be more mountainbikers than cycling people.  :-)
    Please listen to the mountainbike community.

  • I would like to suggest that you make a 'loop' segment.  These segments are a loop, with no fixed start or stop location.  A runner can complete the segment by starting at any location and finishing at their start location.

    Many times I run a segment but it is not complete because I started at a different spot than the 'segment start' point.  Of course it does not register that I ran that segment.

    An example of a loop segment appears below

  • Add the option to tag 'utility' rides to help advocate for cycle-friendly cities

    I would like to have the option to tag my rides as 'utility' the same way you can tag rides as 'commutes'. Commutes have all but become irrelevant as I still continue to work from home, but I now use this tag to record everyday rides (groceries, train station, school runs etc).

    I think this is important because the data would help us advocate for replacing short car journeys with cycling. It also challenges the idea that cycling is only about individual performance and leisure and promotes the view that cycling can help address some major problems with city congestion, pollution etc. There is also a gendered element as women are more likely to do short 'linked' journeys and 'care' trips that may be easily cycled but feel like they are not worth recording let alone celebrating because they are neither about sports performance (training or racing) nor economic performance (commuting) - yet collectively they are likely to have a positive societal impact in many ways.

    This suggestion links to older forum suggestions by Roland T to have the option to include your utility bike and by Glyn Potter to be able to track CO2 savings.

  • Hi !
    A new need came to me after a few months break period and a running restart for which performance is far from previous active period.
    I would then need to define a customised PR identification time frame, so that I can follow the progress inside this restart period.
    Doing so will allow me to follow more specifically the seconds I gain day after day and PR I improve every day considering my ‘lower performance condition’
    And perhaps, step by step, I will beat my previous PR !
    That’s really more encouraging and helping to see short time frame progress, but still keeping in mind long time goal ;)
    Cheers

  • We share a lot of great photos.. some are taken for the Year challenge and they are beautiful but not so many look at it in the Blog post. Why don't randomly show them in the login page here on the web and in the App with the link at the Strava athlete who shot it?

    Also.. please! An iPad, Mac universal App!!!

  • Differentiate "Longest run on Strava" from "Furthest run on Strava".

    I did a trail run that lasted 4.5hrs, but I've never run for longer than that, however I have run further than that, just in less time, but I still get congratulated for my "Longest run on Strava".

  • Add a hotkey to temporarily HIDE the planned route in the route planner.



    I really miss the ability to temporarily hide the planned route in order to see the heatmap and aerial imagery below it. In Komoot, just by holding "M" on your keyboard, you temporarily hide the route so you can see what's below it. Releasing "M" brings back the route.

  • Jason Lamoreaux The three sub-boards under "Leaderboards and Achievements" are related to "Achievements", "Local Legends", and "Leaderboards". I don't think my use case of finding the maximum gradient is relevant to any of those. I knew about the "Leaderboards and Achievements" area, and to assume that I did not is to assume I am incompetent in a pretty significant way. Perhaps you should use the Principle of Charity rather than assuming someone you have never met is incompetent.

  • Can we see enhanced Feed filtering. Given the expansion of the Strava community and people using it for so many reasons, our Feeds are being 'clogged' up by so many different kinds of activities. For some of us, this is significantly reducing the enjoyment and value of Strava. A simple tick box type menu in our personal settings that allows us to set our own Feed preferences would solve this. Personally, I'd like to turn off all virtual activities, all non-cycling activities, and probably turn-off all e-bike activities. This seems like an easy addition and would allow fantastic personalization!

  • Further to Geoff's suggestion, many people in the running community do a warm up, then a session, then a warm down.  Often their session is 1 of n, so if they are doing 4 x 1k, you will get Warm Up, 1/4 1k, 2/4 1k, 3/4 1k, 4/4 1k, Warm down.  Hence 6 activities all with the next shortly after the previous.  Can we please have a feature that it 'rolls up' activities that happen within 30m of the previous activity, and perhaps puts a little '+' symbol next to it that you can expand if you want to review it.  I expect this would also suit the triathaletes.  It would be good to be able to name the group of activities (eg, a Triathlete may wish to name it by the event name (They would typically have 5 including transitions).

    Geoff's suggestion https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360073654892-New-post-ideas?page=26#community_comment_4809452044813

  • I want to be able to see a list of the athletes I train the most with. Would like to be able to order by number of activities completed with them, and total miles I have run / ridden with them.

  • I would love to see the Strava UI work in landscape mode on the phone when recording an activity.
    I use my iPhone as a bicycle computer in my velomobile, and mounting the phone vertically does not work due to space limitations.

    Thank you and best regards,

    Rene

  • Live Segments: choose with whom to compare.

    I just started to use live segments and I find it interesting, but a work in process. Here is my issue: I am 60 years old and when a live segment comes up where I am being compared to the KOM who is a 20 / 30 something-year-old chap this is absolutely useless, for me. Actually, it is more depressing than anything else. Also comparing to my PR will be soon useless too, I am still holding up but it won't last many years. 

    The bottom line is I would like to be able to choose with whom to compare: I would love to be able to compare to my last ride on that same segment or to my PR  over the last couple of years or so. 

    Generally speaking, you might have to think about people getting older and perhaps find a way to split PRs on running period, say the last x years, rather than from the beginning. My first recorded workouts are from 10 years ago, it is not that much when you're young and improving but it starts to get complicated when getting older and your physical ability is deteriorating.

  • add arrows or mileage way points so I follow the right direction - sometimes lines cross over and it's difficult to know which direction to take.

  • What about the ability to sort this feedback form by the newest entries first?  I know you can sort by data but does not appear to bring up the newest one first.

  • Auto import any activity from Apple Watch. For some of us, It is a pain to always go into the list an select each individual activity for import. Would love an option to auto import.

  • I would like to have the ability to choose which sport is displayed on the statistics page, currently it shows cycling, running and swimming. I never run or swim, I cycle, hike and walk. I would find having the ability to be able to choose which activity can be selected on this page very useful as I can see at a glance how much of each activity I have completed.

  • Video for the activity 

    I do not know where to add the content, but I would like to be able to add videos to my activity posts. They could be restricted to a maximum of 60 seconds like Instagram.

  • Please show triathlon as 1 activity - showing all 5 stages)  rather than 5 separate activities, if the user has selected triathlon as the activity and completed it.

    At this late stage to be displaying Triathlon as 5 distinct activities - i) swim ii) "activity"  iii) ride iv) "activity" v) run is really inexcusable. I guarantee there are more triathletes on strava than many of the niche sports already added; and more users will benefit from the improvement, than benefit from any of a dozen quirky features you've decided to add. With thanks.

  • Wind direction and wind speed overlay as Personalized Stats Map.

    I want to be able to add the wind direction and wind speed as a Personalized Stats Map combined with any of the current available Personalized Stats Map. It will allow me to do make the impact visible on performance. The reason that it is important is because I can pick my routes better to optimize training.

  • I would like to recommend once a segment has been created. It can't be modified or deleted. Too often I've personally seen and or know of others who had achieved a KOM or trophy and soon after the segment is notified by the creator again to change the results in their favor. Why not have it when a segment is created, it's created. Or maybe 24 hours before it locks down. Just a thought.
