Opt out of all Strava Segments
Rather than having to actually ride segments to hide them, it would be nice if you are not interested at all about segments to be able to just hide all segments from the Segment Search listing or even better, have an option on your profile to opt out of segments completely. If you opt out, then you would not see any public segments nor would any of your uploaded information ever be entered into any public segments. It would be nice to still be able to create private segments but honestly, I would give up private segments to be able to just opt out of the segment portion of Strava. Strava is a fantastic product but the segment portion has really gotten out of hand and honestly, I think you would get more users if you allowed opting out of segments Most people who use other sites to manage their rides primarily do it because they are driven away from Strava because of the whole segment deal. Just look at the forums all over the Internet for confirmation.
Please consider this request because honestly I think it would be very beneficial and draw more people to Strava that just want to manage their own rides or for their own group. Strava by far is the best option for this, just allow us to opt out of segments.
