Activity Search Feature

I am starting a new thread, as many people asked about the disappearance of the Activity Search feature on a thread that had originally started about a bug about keywords within the feature. Is this feature going to be reinstated? Elle said on the other thread "We are reviewing features that were originally designed for athlete motivation and inspiration to ensure they cannot be compromised by people with bad intent. Read this letter to the Strava community. " But there has been no further comment. To me, and many other premium users this has always been a very useful tool to find rides and routes in new places. I understand the need for privacy, however we as paying customers also want these features, and we want communication from the company. There seems to have been more than enough time to fix privacy bugs and turn this back on. What is the status, will it or will it not be reinstated and what is the timeline? Thank you.

  • This is the made reason to have premium. I can't believe they've got rid of it.

  • Agreed Stuart - my Premium membership is due for renewal in September/October; I'll definitely be downgrading to the free service if this issue hasn't been resolved soon. Strava seem to be quietly hoping we'll all forget about what was one of the best aspects of the subscription service by re-branding us as 'Summit' users. I've checked and none of the Summit options advertise the activity search as a feature. Heat-maps and segment searches are not an adequate substitute. I've supported Strava as a paid subscriber for a number of years now and am disappointed at the lack of information or updates regarding this subject - it smacks of a lack of respect for paying users.

  • yup this was the most useful feature of all, hands down.  if privacy was the issue just bring it back and let us view and search activities, and just obscure the user name and block the link to the profile?

  • Segment Search is actually pathetic. 

    Google Maps blocked out military installations from Day 1.  Why these rtards didn't do it, we will never know.   Strava as an app needs to be dismantled.  It took them 4 years to rebuff the look of the app.  The team is not up to task.   The IP needs to be released and young,  better talented engineers need their fair shot at building an exercise app.

  • Can someone from Strava team please chime in? Is Activity search coming back soon? I just moved and it would be great to know where others are riding. Trying to find new routes in my area. Any other suggestions for how to go about do this?

  • Has there been any feedback on any forum re this feature? It's the only premium feature I ever used before killing the membership.

  • agree that heatmap and segment search are not adequate replacements.   especially if you are looking for other sports like skiing, kayaking , etc.

  • This is a disaster. So many of my holidays were made better by this feature. Does anyone have an alternative way to find popular routes in new places? I'm definitely not renewing without this.

  • Effectively, for trail running, this was one of the most useful features of Strava. Not having it seriously cuts down the value of the app - which seems to be going in the direction of a lame Instagram for runners. 

    At the moment, like for like, the Garmin and Suunto apps and sites give more and better technical information, making Strava a vanity exercise if critical functionality, like search, is not reviewed.

  • If privacy concerns have eviscerated the activity search, then Ride With GPS must strait up close shop.  Instead, we're all going to do route searches there.  Maybe the two have agreed not to overlap so they can both comfortably exist.  Essential but annoying, just like our Garmins.

  • Just would like to add my vote of disappointment that activity search is gone. It was so great for finding new routes here and on vacation. Just today it took me 15 minutes to find the stupid elevation of a very popular route in TN! Strava's old search would have had it immediately. Segment search is a total joke. In the last 6 months or so since they killed it, you would think they would have been able to black out the necessary areas.

  • Searching activities is the only reason I have the paid version of Strava. It’s critical to have when you are traveling with your bike. It’s an awesome way to find the best rides and/or where to stay for that matter. BRING IT BACK!!!!!

  • Ah guys this is a shame. One of the best pro benrfits was searching and discovering new roads when abroad. Please bring it back. Can also be done anonymous like bikemap.

  • Is there a feature to search "Routes" that other people save as "Routes" in a particular area, or by a particular athlete?

  • Looking for a response from Strava regarding these comments.  Yeah, I'd like "Activity Search" functionality again.  It was an awesome feature.  The worst part about this thread is that Strava Admin has never commented.  Nice.

  • There's no plausible privacy excuse for not allowing me to search among the activities of the people I follow. I can manually comb through their activities if I really want to find one with a particular word in the title. But Strava used to allow me to do that in an efficient way. I can agree that there is some gray area for the people I am not already following. But if your activity shows up in my feed, it should show up in my search.

    I guess I'm talking to a brick wall though. I've never seen any evidence that anyone who matters in Strava ever reads these threads.

    Oh and Strava, fix your mapping. Creating routes is still crappy. Allow Openstreetmap to use full-resolution heatmaps so it gets better. Trying to fix Openstreetmap using the garbage-level resolution of the heatmaps you're currently allowing for Openstreetmap doesn't work.

    You should at least improve your activity search so that I can search for all of MY OWN activities that pass within a certain distance of a certain point, so that I can find and download my GPX files to use to fix openstreetmap since you won't provide good heatmap data. You profit off of openstreetmap so you should support it better.

  • I don't understand why we're being ignored...this is completely ridiculous.

    I guess the solution is to use the competing platforms:

    ridewithgps has excellent search-ability and their mapping is really on point too if you guys are wondering.

  • It's like tying to negotiate in an echo chamber. Strava do you want my money? This is the only feature worth a total amateur paying for.
