  • New feature: route planning exclude roads

    In the route planning I'd be good to have a feature where I can exclude certain roads/paths, I live near a popular cycle path which I'd rather avoid and it always plots me on there as it is so popular. Or just plot more to your own heatmap would suffice.

  • Search activities by type / date on the app.

    At the moment you have to scroll through every activity to find the one you are looking for.

  • I would like to have the possibility to display the times for the most relevant distances within a running activity. This option is technically already possible, namely when you run within your three personal best times. Let's say I run a 13 km race and it automatically shows me that I ran my personal-best 10 km.
    As a hobby runner I like to run a good time on my favorite distances from time to time, when my legs spontaneously feel good. In doing so, I don't like to do an extra activity for each run-in and run-out kilometer (cumbersome, thread-spam) to then track the desired fast-run distance cleanly. In addition, one does not always run a personal best time. Nevertheless, a good time is motivating and well useful for training determination.
    In these cases I have to calculate the time laboriously.
    It would be wonderful to get the relevant time directly displayed.
    For a 23 kilometer run automatically the fastest 5 kilometers, the fastest 10 kilometers and the fastest HM.

    Optionally, you could then consider which times are displayed in the thread. It would be nice to have a selection option here.

    Additionally, I would like to see something similar for the 5/10/HM monthly challenges. The current version, that simply each run over 5 km with the total run times per kilometer is evaluated simply makes no sense at all, or do I only see that so?
    It would be so much better to calculate and score the fastest 5k from each run.

  • I want to filter/differentiate the global heat map in the route planner based on what type of bike was used for the activity.

    I have for instance 3 different bikes, for 3 diffrent kind of riding. The bike type value would come from My gear.

    This feature would allow me to better select a good route based on what other riders with the same bike type have chosen to ride.

    There are many times I misinterpret the global heat map and sometimes "bring a knife to a gun fight". This would let me have more fun on the bike by selecting the right one.  

    ROAD SPECIFIC GLOBAD HEAT MAP

    MTB SPECIFIC GLOBAD HEAT MAP

    CROSS BIKE SPECIFIC GLOBAD HEAT MAP

  • "Voice Feedback is a feature to help you stay informed on your activity without needing you to look at the screen. It consists of audio cues and workout stats from our app through your device's speaker or headphones and is enabled by default.

    To enable/disable voice feedback visit the app settings or "Workout Setup" screen by tapping the Settings icon in the upper right corner. The volume of the Voice Feedback mirrors the volume setting currently set on your phone. Intervals for voice feedback can be based on either time (30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes and 20 minutes) or distance (.1, .25, .5, 1, 2, 5, 10, and 25 miles or kilometers)."

     

     

    I would like an audio announce feature that would tell me duration, distance, average mph, split mph.

    I would love the selectable intervals to be 10 minutes, 20 minutes 30 minutes, 1 mile, 2 miles, 5 miles. This is the only feature that I still have to use MapMyRide for. 

    The feature would allow me to know how I am doing vs goals for an entire trip, not just a segment.  I know many people have their phone on their handle bars so they can visualize their time/distance but my phone is in my jersey.

  • Default Equipment by Data Source / Sensor

    I use a different bike for indoor training vs. outdoor. Would be great to have default equipment tied to specific sensors or data sources. For example, if I record a ride on TrainerRoad or Zwift, Strava should know to select my default indoor bike/trainer/smart bike. For outdoor rides recorded on a Garmin/Wahoo, Strava should know to select my default road bike. Would be great to ensure proper tracking of equipment usage.

  • It would be great to have a “Recovery” option for run type workouts; while race/workout/long run are useful this is the other major type missing and it would make it easier to compare like-for-like pace and effort.

  • The recording screen heatmap used to be red, but for an unknown reason, Strava changed it to blue, which is much worse, difficult to differentiate routes colors. Please, get recording screen heatmap back to red!!!

  • I am a Apple Watch and iPhone user. I have used Strava on my Apple Watch (series 3) for every ride and run to take advantage of the heart rate monitor.

    However, I recently purchased the Quad Lock to mount my phone on my bike to see all the information and record my bike rides on my phone. I was disappointed when I wasn’t able to get heart rate information or recording when I used my phone to record a work out. I previously used other apps, like Nike Run Club, that synced up the Apple Watch and iPhone together to track heart rate information on the watch while recording a workout on the phone. Peloton does this well as well.  

    If you could program a way for the Apple Watch to track heart rate data while recording a ride on Strava on my iPhone that would be very much appreciated!

  • Strava needs to start removing meaningless activities to another tab.  Like walking a dog, walking to the park, etc...   maybe start consolidating identical activities into one group?  It is too much and the ones we want to see, like someone running 100 miles is buried by someone with 20 activities of walking .05 mile or other things.  biceps, triceps.....  they need to consolidate.  maybe running, swimming, & cycling should be the main group.  And other things....  just a suggestion to make Strava meaningful.  Thanks and stay safe

  • Suggestion.
    I have created more than 200 routes.
    I don´t find any tool to find a specific route. 
    Could be possible to have the option to find a route as we have to find any activity?

  • When i want to use a suggested route (out of the three offered) based on my location, set distances, road type etc. It would be nice to have a button share/export (TCX or GPX)file (next to save and view details buttons) so you can send it to your Garmin/bike computer.

  • A feature that I'm sure many Strava users, especially cyclists would appreciate, is the ability to use the gear log to keep a record of date and milage for things like new tire installs, chains, drivetrains, bar tape, etc... 

    Also,    A comment section on individual segments on the segment analysis page.. segment discussion is often a big part of our post-ride coffee breaks

  • I just re-wrote this:

    Please add support for downhill mt bikeparks. Many of us would like to have the downhills counted as one ride or session but have the chairlift rides/miles excluded.

    Maybe this is a suggestion to add an option to exclude uphill miles from any lift served activity. Skiing, snowboarding, bikepark biking. Maybe add a checkbox to exclude the miles from any segment. Then people at lift-served places could create a segment for the chairlifts and those of us that wanted to could un-check the miles from that segment.

  • *This comment is not about improving current Strava features but about a potential logo design to work alongside the recent app revamp. I was informed by a Strava representative to post my design here, to gain insights from the Strava community.*

     

    I’m a final-year university student studying product/graphic design in Bristol, UK, and an avid Strava user. I felt inspired to practice my branding skills due to noticing the recent design changes to the app and decided to redesign the current Strava logo.

    My aim is NOT to offend or upset anyone but to show support, provide inspiration, and possibly contribute to the platform.

    Feel free to click the link below to view the logo design! Any feedback would be much appreciated, as that's how I can better my skills, possibly improve on the design, and allows Strava to see if this is a potential design to put forward.

  • Feature Request: Support the Garmin Varia RTL515 & RVR315 radar overlay

    Ride with GPS provides this integration as an overlay in their app [ref: https://ridewithgps.com/help/garmin-varia]

    You can integrate with BikeRadar via the Garmin Connect IQ SDK

    I'd love to see this integration available for the Strava Android app.

  • SWIMRUN Activity Support from Garmin Import

    Dear Strava Team, as a swim runner I really like to share my multi sport activities with my peers on Strava. Sadly the Garmin multi sport activities are posted separately on Strava and cause quite some number of activities (5-15 different swim and run segments are usual). Could you consider a function to group these activities manually in a multisport activity or improve the Garmin import? Would be really happy about a solution. Have a nice day! Florian

  • Hi
    I feel that you could add the option a gold level of kudos for outstanding runs/rides. For example I’ve just seen a friend of mine that’s run a half in 1:11 and feel that this would really be inspiring to him.

    Thanks

    David

  • VIRTUAL WALK Option

     I use Zwift on the treadmill and even though the only option (at this stage) is to start a treadmill session as a RUN, I would like the option to be able to within STRAVA to change the activity from a VIRTUAL RUN to a VIRTUAL WALK.

    It will allow me to correctly capture the data of virtual walks vs virtual runs. The reason that is important is because 90% of my time on a treadmill is WALKING not RUNNING. My PROGRESS data for VIRTUAL WALKS and VIRTUAL RUNS are therefore skewed. Especially when I am trying to train for a 6day hike, as I am trying to capture my daily kms of walking. But this is not reflective in STRAVA.

    I am able to change the activity within Garmin but it is strava which I capture all my data. in STRAVA.

  • I would like to see a brand new feature called "First Time Climb" or something. Where I live - Norfolk in the UK - is extraordinarily flat. So to ride on any hills I normally have to travel quite some distance. Anyway I do this once a year or so - get on the train, travel 100 miles or so etc - and then give it my best when I get to range of hills I've gone to. However, we all know how much easier a climb is if you are familiar with it, which means people like myself - first timers on a climb - face a large disadvantage, not knowing anything about the climb - when to give it some, when to maintain tempo etc. However, if there were a separate classification on the leader board - "First Timers" for example, then I feel this would give a fairer reflection - excluding those who can climb the hill with so much more confidence due to their repeated attempts. Do it a second time and this attempt will only feature on the main leader board, not the first time category. The beauty of this idea is that many people like myself only ever get to ride certain hills once, so they would be able to rate themselves against all first timers and get a better picture of how everyone got on first time, not just the local guys on their 23rd effort!

  • In the Summer, i like to mountain bike at a lift-served resort but I can't find a way to tag the ride as such and have Strava automatically remove the climbs from my stats as any groups that I'm a part of are skewed by my insane climb statistics.

    It seems like it would be a simple solution for Strava to implement to sense impossibly steady ascents that are within a buffered distance of well-known bike resorts and ask people "Was this a lift-served ride?" when posting; this could even only be active in Summer when the resorts feature biking.

  • Like @Simon (. I want to choose what I see in my feed… in my case I am bombarded by the virtue signalling of my followers joining challenges… For the record… I could not care less if someone joins a challenge… it is my feed and I am paying to have choice… please allow me to see only the things I want to see in my feed…
    For the record I have posted this before, and will continue to do so habitually until I or you get so bored, you do something…🥴🙄

  • Flag an activity as 'Sustained Injury'

    It would be great, just like with races, to mark activities as the start of an injury so that on our training and fitness graphs we can correlate troughs in fitness with injury.

    Also adding a injured status to our profile would also be great.

  • Bonjour,

    serait-il possible de créer un sport "VTT-Mountain Bike" avec des challenges qui vont avec ?

    faire 50 km en VTT ce n'est pas la même chose que faire 50 km en vélo de route ?

    Sportivement

  • Can we add the option of selecting your gear for each sport ?
    I mean, for now, we can only add bikes and running shoes. However, i'd like to add my hiking shoes and walking shoes (which are obviously different from my running shoes) to track their mileage.

  • Always a fan of adding downhill MTB as an option that would cut out the chairlift travel time the way https://getslopes.com/ does for Skiing/Snowboarding.
