  • I regularly use a scooter (push/kick scooter) to go to the shops or nearby friends and record these activities as it is great exercise and quicker than walking.  Could we please have a Kick Scooter sport type?  I'm sure I have seen this requested before...

    It is frustrating when these more 'fringe' sports are not recognised by platforms.  The only platform I'm aware of that used to recognise kick scooters was Endomondo.

    Maybe there is a way to have a 'generic' alternative transport activity type though this is not as refined as a dedicated activity.

  • Remove segment performance (time) from OWN results too
    Hi,
    we know can remove a fake segment performance (example GPS signal drop) from the leaderboard by
    1) making the whole acivity private or
    2) flag the activity (own flag)
    but how to actually remove that from own results too? Simply because I do not want to see fake results among my results too.

    A workaround have found is to split the activity in the point/points where GPS drop occurred, this way the segment is completely missed, but that you can agree is a terrible workaround you should do something

    Regards

  • I would like to keep history of repairs / maintenance on my gear in Strava.

    For example when I replace my outside tires on my bicycle, it would be nice to be reminder after 2.000 km’s that it’s time te replace them again.
    Same with the chain. Would be good to be reminder after 4.000 km.

    It can be combined with a commercial offer from your favorite cycle repair shop.

    So, it would be nice if you can upload / fill in maintenance carried out (plus the receipt) into Strava, and map that to the mileage at that moment.

    I assume not everybody wants to change their tires/chain at the same moment, so there should be a table that people can self-maintain. Like I’d like to be reminded every … km’s about replacing my ….

    In combination with commercials offers from bike-vendors, plus the extra service it provides for Strava-endusers, plus the 5% (for example) Strava receives for sells via their website, it can be interesting for all parties.

  • I am hoping Strava is working to integrate rear traffic radar detector Garmin Varia RTL515 into one of cycling screens. Ride with GPS app has integrated it.  It is a great for riding safety.  Informs you of vehicles approaching and rates the threat based on speed of vehicle.

  • Please make Ride Titles and Ride Descriptions searchable, if the member allows it (i.e. a Privacy option like Flybys). Being able to search titles and descriptions would make it easy to find previous rides (e.g. find a ride by keyword), find other members who prefer similar rides/segments (e.g. riders who like climbing), and also search for ride tips, for example "at the end of this ride you can lock your bike and hike an additional 1 mile to the edge of Snoqualmie Falls".

    Many members make detailed notes in their descriptions, much like a diary. Currently there is no way to take advantage of this except for tedious, time-consuming scrolling.

  • PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE allow average speed to be displayed during an activity!  It used to be displayed until I PAID for Strava and for some reason the pay version will not allow average speed to be displayed.  I don't need to know my current speed, average speed is much more useful.  Ideally there would be a way to have both, like most simple $20 speedometers!

  • Hello,

     

    it would be great if I can compare 2 activities.

    Example:

    2 bicycle drives.
    10.05 with 1:44h
    09.05 with 1.45h

    I know that I driver on 10.05 at last very slowly ... but in total I have a better time ... so I must drive at the beginning much faster as on 09.05 ... but not able to compare this 2 drives.

    Great would be a side by side with interval of 1km:

    Then I could see, on which part of my ride I drive how fast.

     

    Thank you!

  • I wish Strava allowed us to record the location where we had flats on their database. It would identify flat prone sections of road and it could be used to notify municipal officials of sections of road needing cleaning or other attention.

  • Wear OS app. This really needs updating to a better standard. This version hasn't been updates since 2017 and needs bringing more in line with, dare I say it, the Tizen version!

    It has much more workout types than the Wear OS version (cycling or running).

    The app also needs to be referred to by its new name too. You still call it Android Wear!

  • I am an avid diver and dive with a SUUNTO dive computer with bluetooth capabilities.  I would love to have it sync with my Strava account so I can log all my dives as well as let friends and family see my dives.  It would be great if I could post my dive pictures so all can see.  I would like to have data such as dive time, depth, temp, dive number, bottom time, surface interval etc.  Would be great if I could add another hobby to log via Strava.  Thanks for the help!

  • I would like a way to customize which parameters show up in "My Activities" on the web. Average speed would be more useful to me than, say, relative effort, but I can't find a way to show that in the list.

  • I just realized that in more than 100 manual entries that I added, the distance is wrong and needs to be corrected. With a wrong distance, all my calculation is wrong, especially average pace.

     

    In each activity I made some comments, gave the run a different title, put the right time and day. I can't just delete them 1 by 1 and have to do 100 manual entries all over again, when all I want to do is to adjust the distance. It is a shame that Strava won't let us just edit the distance of a manual entry.

  • Hello. Since the default privacy options has changed (private is now the default), seeing each other as part of a group is not the standerd way. If you want to see your fellow members in a private group you are allowed to see their activities in the activities of the groups when the have choosen to ALLOW EVERYONE to see their activities. Since privacy is hot, most people choose the second option: ONLY FOLLOWERS.

    I'm a member of a private group and I do not like to follow all my fellow members. Why?

    Because on the default dashboard page I can see all the people I do like to follow, like my best friends, my children and my other relatives. So what we need is a fourth option in the privacy settings for Groups:

    ALLOW FOLLOWERS AND GROUPMEMBERS

    If this can be done, the home page dashboard contains the activities of the people I like to follow and once I'm interested in my groups I can see the compleet group, jus be clicking the right one and choose activties.

    Thank you for your great website.

  • At the moment the 'Biggest Climb' stat on the my profile page is being calculated when cycling a non e-bike only.

    The 'Longest Ride' stat does include both normal bikes and e-bikes...

    This is confusing one stat includes both types of cycling the other doesn’t.

    The my profile page should either include both types in the calculation so that it's consistent.

    Or separate out e-bikes and show those in a separate tab how you can toggle between cycling/running so perhaps calculate statistics per type of category?

  • I would like to distinguish training 'seasons' and then be able to record an SB (Season's Best).  This would be particularly useful if you are returning to the sport after a prolonged break (forced by injury or the season).  It would also provide motivation to challenge yourself to beat previous PBs.

  • Using the map for navigating a saved route on my iphone I would like to have the riding direction always facing top of the screen and not as it is now always north unlessyou manually always correct it while riding.

    This would allow me keep focus on the riding better and not be messing with the navigation as much. It does get confusing causing some wrong turns.

    An auto zoom would also be great depending on how how many bands / turns there are in a certain segment

  • I have been a STRAVA subscriber for almost 1 year. I find the classification of athletes in the segments interesting. However, despite this being divided by age, gender, etc... It is still unfair in relation to the KOM/QOM since to achieve this "award" you must compete with everyone. The correct thing in my view, more balanced and fair would be to exist KOM/QOM by age, gender and weight. Never will a 55-year-old athlete, even in excellent physical condition for his category, achieve any KOM/QOM in popular segments disputed with 20-year-old athletes. You could create a fairer and more democratic KOM/QOM, like KOM senior/KOM+55/KOM+20, etc... I'm sure it would be the biggest hit among users. Thanks.

  • As more of us are switching wheelsets between rides for all-in-one frames (e.g. the Allied Allroad) in order to ride both gravel and road, it would be nice to indicate which wheelsets and tires you rode with on each ride. This would be great for keeping up with mileage and would be interesting to see in rider’s feeds (e.g. riding a trail with 35 vs 38cc tires, etc.)

  • Scott McBurney - I understand what you are saying, but Strava has no way of knowing accurately whether someone was riding in a pack versus solo unless each person indicated as such on their file.  Their algorithm for determining if someone was riding with another person is terrible and not even close to accurate. I know I been shown as riding in a "group ride" with others when I never even saw them at any point, I just happened to follow the same or similar route near the same time.  Other times are in races where I may be within a few seconds of another person, but definitely not close enough to be gaining any draft assistance from them.

  • I'd like the following function, already existing in the web version, were available also in the app: when you've created a path, you can follow the altitude graph with a finger or mouse and look in the map the position. This function could help me, e.g. when I'm re-routing a trip, in looking where I've to climb and how much.
    This function is not active for the app, but I think it'd be appreciated by many. Thank you

  • The ability to filter activities to what gear you are using. This would managing gear easier, especially if you have missed to register correct on some activities.

    There is one related function which would be good as well, when clicking on a specific gear, it should list all activities used by this gear.

  • Please can we have a return to being able to freely download other users’ rides/runs as GPX files.

    It’s particularly handy for exploring new areas, and was available to all Strava users before the June 2021 update. I suggest to Strava that they have no right to capitalise on the availability of individuals’ GPX files as they belong to the Strava member that recorded them.

    I think it’s a real shame this has happened, making them freely available will likely incentivise people to get out, explore and exercise.

  • When adding gear in settings, users are able to specify bike type (road, cross, etc.)

    I'd like to propose adding further filtering of activities in global heatmap (and in route planner) not only by activity type, but also by *bike* type. This way, we'd be able filter out cross/mtb bikes and see which paths are actually used by people on road bikes. At least in my area, provided data about surface (paved/dirt) is absolutely unreliable and this option might be super helpful.

  • I would like to see an option to organize the routes which I created. Over time I have created a lot routes in several countries/regions. Currently it costs a lot of time to find a route in my own routes as the routes seem only sorted chronological. I see two different options:

    1. Create folders. This could be based on predefined folders (by country or by region) or folers based on users choice ('Alpes 2020', 'Flanders', like photo albums on Facebook).

    2. Plot all own routes on a map. Similar as is now the case with segments.

  • In profile along with longest ride, I would like to see most single ride vertical , more relevant for people that don’t live in mountainous terrain with the long climb segments .Also a feather in the cap for Everesters

  • I want to see Tai Chi/Qi Gong added as an activity. 

    It will allow me to  track this activity separately from 'workout' or 'yoga', which are the only ways right now I can relate it to.

    The reason that is important is because  I also suspect that there are others who practice Tai Chi/Qi Gong and there's no way to label that. 

    An example of when I would like this is... I have a regular tai chi/qi gong practice. I can only use yoga or workout as a label...

  • For WindSurfing activity:

    I use a custom app "Windsurfing application" from VivSurfer. The app records data in Km and meters using the device (Garmin Fenix 6 Pro) GPS.
    The sync of this app with Garmin Connect works fine and keeps these measures and scales.
    Once Connect syncs with Strava, the measures are converted to NM for distance and kn for speed.

    I would like them to either show Km and m as additional (converted) measures, or totally replace the NM and KN to metric scale.

    Similar case and feature you had implemented recently for Kitesurfing apps/activities.

    Synchronizing from Garmin Fenix 6 to Garming Connect and from there to Strava

  • I saw a somewhat similar request here already, but I'd really like to be able to track maintenance on my bikes.  It would be awesome if I could say that I replaced my wheel bearings today and know that 6 months from now I've got 1k miles on them, etc.  There's a bunch of standard maintenance to perform on a bike (like a car - generally intervals suggested by mileage and/or time) and if this could be tracked in Strava (similar to how shoes, frames, and components are tracked - and thanks for this BTW) this would be another really helpful tool in Strava.  Thanks!
