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.

  • Just stoppen my summit membership after years. I was a great fan of the activity Search. As long as it’s Offline i’m Not renewing. This is the only reason membership makes sense, too little upside besides this great feature.

     

    BRING IT BACK!

  • My sense is many people are switching over to Map My Ride.. it has the ride search feature.. and it's available at the free level.   Thats what I use to search for routes.. Strava sucks for planning rides..

  • Very disappointing. Seems Strava is no longer interested in supporting athletes and hard core users of their site. I've only been a summit member since November 2018. If this is not resolved soon I too, will not be renewing my membership. Map My Run was great as a running app but I switched over to Strava about 2 years ago when I started biking seriously. Sounds like its time to give Map My Ride a shot...

  • I’m away from home and want to search for routes near where I’m staying. Why has this been dropped?

  • Disappointing. I'm ON holiday, I've been using free Strava for a year or so. My sister told me of the find runs section on paid Strava. Was about to start a months free trial but won't after reading this.
    Why not supply the routes without a name attached if they aren't a 'friend' on Strava? No rights infringed?

  • I would like to search my own feed/Diery. All of my settings are already in private mode. So, why can’t I search my own feed??

    I can search my diary in SportsTracker app. In fact, I can sort my activities by title or type ie. hike, bike, kayak etc. I don’t want to have to go back to SportsTracker. I would rather stay with Strava. I need to be able to see my own feed/diary/history so I can reference my own stats. How/When are you going to remedy the search feature, Strava?

  • I'm another who has stopped paying for Summit - after more than 8 years.

    Strava used to be so good - but now it ignores users, removes the really good features. And starts treating OUR data as if it was theirs.

    I'll gladly re-subscribe if their start paying attention to people.

  • Agreed, why remove a feature that has defined the purpose of Strava. I’m going back to a compass and ordinance survey map!

  • yep - it doesn't seem that difficult to reopen the activity search for other runners that chose to make it public.  I am trying to find the race profile and .gpx of a race I want to run and it's painfully difficult now.

  • Clearly, no one at Strava cares about how we feel about this change. I'm probably going to just stop using Strava altogether. I don't get a lot out of the analysis and all my rides since 2005 are in Garmin Connect anyway. The social aspects of Strava don't mean much to me. I used to find rides in areas I was visiting simply by using the great search tool they had but now that's been gone for over a year now and I don't see them bringing it back.

  • I have given up on using strava for courses/routes.  It's really just a logging and performance site. I use Ride With GPS for searching for routes. It's free and the mapping is vastly superior to Strava. They have really good free access to searching for routes. Its just better all around for mapping and using navigation on your garmin.

  • The beauty of the Strava search is that cyclists actually rode those routes. I've occasionally found RWGPS routes that are unsafe to ride because someone created the route but never validated it or if they did, they left the route online.

  • I'm off on holiday next Monday, so thought I'd just check out some running routes  before I went, only to find it's no longer possible on Strava. So, like so many others on this thread, I won't renew my paid subscription when it comes  up later in the year unless this is reinstated. And some decent reply from Strava would be appreciated (and a big surpise!).

  • I was hoping to plan a ride this weekend that a friend I follow on Strava has done.  It looks like I can only view activities on another profile, even one I follow, going back 4 weeks now.  I’ve tried searching but routes all over the world show up loosely matching.  This is frustrating and I also have a paid membership that I’m questioning the value of.  Luckily it renews in two weeks (annual) so I downgraded for the upcoming period.

  • Use Ride with GPS to find routes https://ridewithgps.com/ .

  • This is a deal breaker for me. I have always commented and published my ride so other users and visitors could use them. Not much less remaining if routing is not so good and if you don't care about KOMs. Here I come Ride With GPS.

  • I would definitely PAY for this feature!!!

    Just started with Strava and I must admit, I liked the app very much. I was searching for this feature since it would make sense to have one, only to find out that it is gone. At first I tought I must be premium member but now I see it is gone for everyone. What a shame. Really stupid move if you ask me. This would definetely be one of the apps that I would give money for!

  • I understand the privacy concern but it would’ve been a lot smarter to just allow users to opt out of having their rides searchable. I can’t even see my own friends’ rides beyond 4 weeks ago and I have to ask them to send me a link to such and such ride that I remember them posting. What’s the point of the 4 week limit?

  • Or allow people to opt-in to have their rides public. It could be featured prominently on our Strava feed. I would opt-in and I assume everyone on this thread would as well.

  • Any news on this. This is one of the main reasons I am on Strava so that when I go away (doesnt have to be far) I can follow a route or see where the best place to run is? Bit pointless for me otherwise. I may as well stick with Garmin Connect or Runtastic or something like that ?

  • I don't think the folks at Strava are paying attention to this thread and if they are they're ignoring it. I don't expect them to change this policy and I'm probably not going to renew my premium account before it comes up in March.

  • The only option is to get Strava a decent competitor ... if we can teleport our data elsewhere and cost them some revenue, they will start paying attention.

  • Yes like ride with GPS, map my ride, sports tracker. Also, when I went to look at my year end stats on Strava, the only summary I could really get is Run, bike, swim. What about the rest? That’s a sucky year in review. They have a Luddite technical team That doesn’t keep up with the times. The gap is closing and someone will pass Strava here pretty soon.

    The inventors of Strava are not athletes. That probably has a lot to do with these issues.
