Policing E-Bikes

Anyone have ideas on how to police E-Bike rides being uploaded to Strava?  I've been watching lots KOM's go bye-bye recently.  As E-Bikes become more popular this will continue to be a problem.

  • neural network integration to the platform would help identify anomalies in the activities that relate to ebike users. Should be easy to pick up on the patterns of how ebikes cruise across different elevations, terrain & trails based on comparison patterns of non ebike historical activities. Platform needs to an automated process that indicates an ebike activity, once a positive ebike classification is made the ebike user should be sent an automated notification to say that this activity is identified as battery assisted and will not show in the segment leaderboards. Put the ownership back on the user to state otherwise and prove that they don’t have an ebike if that’s is actually the case.

  • E-Bikers are not cyclists. There are motorcyclists and if they upload data to Strava and "earning" KOMs/QOMs or a TOP 10 ranking they are cheaters that must be punished. There is a simple solution: If a user is flagged for using an e-Bike (or any other motorized vehicle) the user receives a warning from STRAVA or needs to explain, why it it is unjustified. If he not reacts or gets flagged for the second (or third) time he then gets banned from all former rankings (e.g. by setting all his riding activity to private) and this ban should be vaild for one year. Otherwise this ranking and KOM/QOM stuff makes no sense anymore.

  • Thomas G. , NOBODY is saying E-Bikers are cyclist, nobody is saying they should compete as equals, I just want to use EXISTING segments, to compete maybe with other E-Bikers, I don't want to create all the segments all over again. The commenters like you should be punished for not understanding this simple idea - WE DON'T WANT TO CREATE THE SAME SEGMENTS AGAIN! 

    Also I just want to chose the default option to post ALL my rides as E-Bike Rides, but Strava doesn't have the option like this. I just push the button on my FitBit, and it posts the ride automatically, and it shouldn't be my job to go and change the type from "Bike" to "E-Bike" every time my ride is posted. You are blaming the wrong people, don't blame the E-Bikers for Strava ignorance!

  • This is Strava's fault, not the people using it. This would all be solved if the app supported a default activity and guided you to choose the right one the first time an activity gets flagged. Even better if you could flag your equipment with its ride type.

    In the mean time whenever a e-biker presses finish ride, another cyclist gets their jimmies rustled until the e-biker gets around to YET AGAIN manually changing their ride to the correct type. People on both sides are frustrated and only Strava can fix it.

  • Michael its easy to set your ride to ebike before you start the ride.

    1. open up strava on your phone.

    2. press record in the middle bottom of the screen

    3. above the orange start circle you will see a bike icon, press that which opens a new screen labelled Choose a sport, scroll up or down in here until you find e-bike ride. click on that and this will now make all your rides record as e-bike rides. the icon then changes to a bike with a electric icon above it showing on the screen.

    hope this helps

    If you have serious problems with an annoying E-Bike cheater, contact the Strava customer support. We also had some of these guys in our area, but the customer support helped.

  • The cheaters only get advantage on the uphill kom segments..... On the DH it's all the same. Once you hit 25kmph you are just like the rest... But on a heavy as fuck Gumby bike.
