  • Attended Activity/Event comparison

    Often we meet likeminded athletes at races and events. We follow them on Strava, as one does, but then after a couple of months we may seem to forget where we met them, who they actually were and why we followed them in the first place... clogging up our feeds with 'Randoms'

    A cool feature would be if we could pull up an athlete and see which events, runs or races we may have attended together. A kind of snapshot timeline or overview of what activities you attended together and when you started following each other etc.

    This not only provides a reminder of who they are but could also allow us to compare progress from when we last attended an activity together, encourage friendly competition and future meetups at events.

    This can also be extended to other athletes who we may still intend to follow. It would be really interesting to see if we ever attended the same event as a rising star or a sporting legend should they have visible privacy settings.

  • Auto pause for e-bike riding on Apple Watch

    Hello, would be a good implementation if we can use auto pause functionality for e-bike ride in the same way that today it's working for normal ride on Apple Watch

  • As a user I would like to set a default eBike for my eBike rides so that I don't have to manually change the bike after each ride since I have different bike set as default bike for regular bike rides.

  • Please let us, NOT YOU, choose what stats are shown on our dashboards for activities.
    I now do speed walking due to a running injury but the dashboard will not show my pace!! It always shows walking elevation instead of pace. I’m trying to get faster not higher!! (Totally understand having elevation for hikes - but not walks). Thanks

  • It would be great if I could hide photos (some of them or all of them) uploaded to my activities, but still leave the activity set to 'Everyone'. Some of my activites I use as diary (most often hikes) -- I upload photos to them; I'd like to show, where I was, the distance I travelled etc. and also I'd love these activities to count into groups stats (when they're set to 'only me' it doesn't happen) -- however pictures should be seen only for me. Now I can jot down some private notes and public notes -- the same I'd like to do with photos.

  • Option to link multiple activities into one Feed entry

    For instance a commute to and from work, warm-ups with races or any other activity with gap(s). This would give the opportunity for one set of comments and kudos rather than multiple lesser entries.

  • Add Handcycle & Wheelchair as a Primary sport:

    Currently the only options for "Primary sport" are Running or Cycling. I love competing, but since my sport is lumped in with able body cycling and not one of its own, I am forced to compete with able body athletes.  I appreciate that Handcycle & Wheelchair is listed as an activity - it shows you care a little bit about inclusion.  Let's take it a step further and put our activities into its own leaderboard separating us from the able body folks.  I would like to see these changes made so that athletes with disabilities can compete on our own level.

    Additionally, When I set my activity as handcycle, all of my Achievements for that ride go away. 

    If anyone would like to talk about this you can email me usmcjeff7489@gmail.com

  • Please can have the ability to order activities in Watch OS? The ‘new activity’ screen has been rearranged so its no longer shows run/ride/walk even though I’m sure these are the most common. I’d like to be able to put it back so i can see the only three options i use.

  • I want to be able to rearrange the order of activities in the Strava app on my smart watch. It will allow me to more quickly and easily find the activity I want to use. The reason that is important is because when I go on a walk with my dog his leash is in my hand and cycling down to find walk is more difficult.

  • worst issue ever. after huge update with trail features (mostly pointless features) strava app on android become to unusable for trail running. yes, to download a route into mobile is a very good idea, but, at the same time, if no cellular network with internet (its a usual situation if you are real trail runner), strava cant  show map, cant show a path, that  already recorded during current training, cant show direction (arrow is absent) and, finally, even cant show your position!!! its an epic fail! best trail feature - to help get lost in unknown hell)) this issue widelly known, many friend claimed.

  • Age categories are too broad. Especially above the age of 50 years, the annual decay (~ cardiac output) goes exponential. That is why most countries have 5 years for the range of age categories. Strava has sufficient data to change the age categories from 55-64 to 55-59, 60-64, 65-69 and so on. In my opinion, it should even be considered to narow the range from the age of 45.

  • I strongly suggest being able to switch the view of my past activities in the app to a simple one row list view with basic info (e.g. date, duration, length). I often find myself scrolling through dussins of commute rides and other to, for example, find my last time on the route I plan to repeat tomorrow, or looking for a specific ride I want to save as a route to share with a friend, etc.

  • Strava has implemented some very complicated new features over the last year or so - super code intensive, data intensive, processor intensive, and many times not so value-to-the-user intensive. Yet we can't get multi-sports to display as one sport, and whenever it is suggested it is ignored. Trithlon, duathlon and aquathlon, from a training AND competing standpoint, have to be more popular than at least half dozen or so of the sports listed. Thanks for ignoring this suggestion once again. 

    Also, flipping to forum so the most recent suggestions show first is just common sense. Nobody is reading 30 pages of comments in order to express what's bugging them anyway. 

    Thanks

  • I would like to be able to combine various data feeds. It will allow me to merge my heart rate and distance from my Apple Watch with my on-bike power meter. Also, some users may have similar problem with other devices - e.g., phone for recording distance and GPS and a watch or a heart-rate monitor. I don't like that I need to choose which data feel I would like to see on Strava or that I need to merge them via 3rd party website...

    Thanks.

  • It would be nice if scuba diving was added as a sport in strava.

    When diving, you log dives (depth, depth profile, length, location). That would be awesome for a Strava integration.

    I know numerous athletes/Strava users who log their dives in other apps - why not with Strava?
    Thanks

  • Finaly, my third idea, to get some customizable diagrams for which displayed data and related activities could be selected.

    For instance, chose all activities flagged with a specific route and a specific training purpose, then display a diagram with for instance date as horizontal axis and speed/pace on vertical axis, and eventualy Heart Rate on plot size 'for those who may have already use such ;)

  • Tony Croke - There is no way for Strava to accurate determine if someone is riding in a "group" or "solo".  Very few people would accurately input this data themselves.  Heck, most people don't even input what bike or type of bike they are using.  Strava's algorithm for determining a "group ride" is terrible.  I've had it say I rode with multiple other people on rides where I never once saw them, I just happened to ride somewhere near them for a while during the ride.  You are correct that group rides have the potential to be faster than solo rides, but unfortunately there is no realistic way to accurately separate them.  Also, anything you do now would not help the decade or more of historical data in the system that does not have that designation, so your leaderboards would be full of mixed up data.

  • Hi,
    I’d like to be able to create a personal heat map of my regular bike rides, ebike rides and a combination of both (based on my selection). Thanks!

  • I want a section for suggestions about recording activities. It will allow me to do suggestions. The reason that is important is because of no where on the forum to suggest improvements. An example of when I needed that was asking at allow running power from a Garmin, as is currently allowed from an Apple Watch 

     

    When I have a suggestion then nowhere to suggest it happens and that is not ok because I'd like to make a suggestion.

     

    Here is a picture illustrating my point from above. See how the forum is doing no sections for suggestions about recording data? 

     

    For example: This is important to me because I'd like to make a suggestion.

     

    I think a section for suggestions of features (more than only Training Log, Goals, and Routes) would be great because then I could see suggestions. This is important to me because I have to not post my suggestion because there's no section for it.

  • Hard time understanding fitness graph, my value have totally slumped since august and I seem to get less effort points for similar activity - I started uploading real power data from both cycling and running I have also adjusted FTP from 200-220-240 based on tests. Can someone explain a jump from 280 to 198 in 3 months under same load and I feel a lot fitter than in aug it’s a 30% slump and no signs of flatlining and fatigue or overtraining is not an issue.

  • Backcountry ski analytics for feet per minute, or whatever is the established rate, I am really interested in my time over a 1000 feet.

  • Within the iPhone mobile app, would it be possible to allow users to designate a custom notification sound, other than the default iPhone "tri-tone" sound?  This matters to me because I like to keep up with my Strava notifications.  However there can be confusion in this regard, because many other apps play the default notification sound, and other phones in the area will also frequently make the same sound.  If I could assign a special tone unique to Strava on my phone, this confusion would be alleviated.  Thank you kindly for reading and considering this suggestion.

  • I would like the ability in the routing section to change the start point of another users route. I like the feature to explore others routes but then it would be so much better to change the start point to somehwere local and then for Strava to navigate to the nearest segment/section by giving it an alternative start point

  • Hello,

    I have a few suggestions/questions.

    I have just received my 2020 resume, great !

    Would it be (or is it) possible to add a feature that we could enter our goals for 2021?

    I forecast xx days, xx kms, xx elevation...
    Then, I would receive messages, xx days until you reach your 2021 goal...
    Another way to find the motivation !

    Another thing I would find interesting as a MTB riders, would be to split biking between sub-categories (MTB, Road, Gravelbike...).

    Finally, as a person that loves maths and %...is there a possibility to know your percentile in a segment?

    My position is 224 out of 4530 people in a segment, I am in the top 5%.

    Thanks for the feedback and congrats for the app !

    Fred

  • I want to be able to deselect the shoes for the selected activity.
    I run in different shoes than I walk and those are not listed.
    Please add "Unspecified/Unknown" option for not displaying such information.

  • I would like to be able to create a global heat map showing all my historical activities, whether they are cycling, hiking or skiing etcetera. This would make for a nice visual walk down memory lane. Thanks!

  • In the "Analyze Effort" page of a Segment in the Mobile App, it would so much more useful if we could pick and overlay two of the segment efforts. This would allow us to compare together the line graphs for heart rate, speed, time, and power of both the efforts.

  • I have all my shoes listed on Strava, and that's quite helpful to see the mileage that I put on them, but is there any way to make that information clickable? Can I click on a shoe and see all the activities that I've done on that shoe? Something like a filter setting?

    I feel like that might help people work out why they think a particular shoe causes a niggle, or whether a particular style of shoe works better for them over a shorter distance, like 5km vs half marathon etc.

    It would be nice to be able to pinpoint things like "Huh, I get that niggle after that run on Regular Route in shoe A, but when I run that same route in shoe B, I have no issues. When I run Other Route in shoe A I'm fine. Oooh! I wonder if it's that hill and the pronation support?"
