Reverse an existing Strava Route

Hi,

Is it possible to reverse routes on Strava? I'd like the option to reverse routes I've ridden or created on the Strava route planner.

Regards, John

21.06.16 - So, two and a bit years later we're still no further forward with this development. Absolutely crazy!!

08/0217 - Well I've literally ran out of time waiting for this feature, having now being diagnosed with a terminal cancer. I find incredible that such a fundamental requirement for all cyclist in a cycling app simply isn't available.

    Hey all,

    Thank you for your continued feedback. I assure you that's it's incredibly valuable.

    The reason this hasn't been implemented yet is because the Route Builder function is still in beta mode. Your feedback is more than welcomed and we are listening. We'll be sure to update you when work on the next evolution of Route Builder begins.

  • Both 'Reverse' and 'complete loop' would be very handy commands.

  • Agree completely.

    For example, my last new route is a hit with my friends, but we decided it would be preferable to do in reverse. With a lot of little segments, it is very difficult to recreate the whole route. Being able to either reverse route, or just print cue sheet in reverse, would be great!

  • It's an absolute joke that this thread is still open.

  • Dear Andrew P. - I have been riding bikes on and off for over 70 years in North America, Europe, and Asia. Right now I am still riding and get in my 5000 miles or so every year. To keep track of my speed, mileage, and route I use the Strava app on my smartphone, but I don't have or plan to have/buy a Garmin device. So I believe Garmin Connect would not do a thing for me. It goes without saying that classifying mine and other people's comments on the Strava forum concerning reversing an existing Strava Route as 'bleating' is pretty obnoxious and childish and not something I would expect from a fellow bicycle rider.

  • Reverse a route would be very handy... I'm creating some off-road Routes for my local school cycling club - but I'll need both directions as the 'risk assessments' will be very different.

  • It's kind of pathetic that this hasn't been implemented when the request was made 4 years ago. Reversing the order of a list is trivial in almost every programming language. If the developers cannot accomplish this, it severely hurts the credibility of Strava's claim that the "Advanced Analysis" (or any other part of a premium membership) is worth it. Let's make a conservative estimate here:

    So if implementing this feature convinces even 1 in 3000 people to sign up for a one year premium membership, the development cost has paid for itself..., but Strava hasn't taken the time to do this in the last 4 years. If you're not willing to provide even this minuscule bit of value, why should anybody believe that your premium offering is worth anything? It's so deficient as to lead skeptics (as myself) to believe that the time to set up a free trial is not worth the benefit of doing so, even ignoring the fact that one has to take to cancel on the other side when the service is not up-to-snuff.

    It should be very embarrassing for strava that this discussion was started in 2014 and that this function has still not been implemented - especially if you pretend to be interested in the wishes of your users, just a little reminder

  • This could additionally (with the same mechanism) apply to creating reversed segments, which I've found to be a pretty annoying procedure.

  • I'm a programmer, it would literally take 2 minutes to put in the code to re-calculate the route from the reverse set of points (the algorithm doesn't even need to change). Adding in the UI would be more work but certainly not a huge change.

  • Over 2 years and still no sign, looks like laziness to me.

  • Jeremy (official comment), 

    I call BS on your statement that we only get super basic mapping tools because the route builder is still in "beta."  When will it ever be out of beta?  Just from the date of the original post, it's clear that the it's been in beta for over three years!  This is the dominant cycling app/community and mapping is a basic function of the service.  Google and Apple release entire operating systems every year, but in 3 years you haven't been able to implement mapping tools that other services have had for ages?

  • Reverse route for me too.  Just set up a commute to work route and I want to go home the same way!

  • I'm new around here, but I see the original post was February 21, 2014 19:45. Strava, surely this is embarrassing for you now? Not just that such a popular request hasn't been implemented, but that it took two years to get an 'official response' and that was almost a year and a half ago! If there's something we're all missing then tell us! Or don't you care what your user community thinks/wants??

    Nice product in places, but I won't be going premium any time soon. Why would I give my money to an organisation like this??

  • Its been 3 years and Route Builder function is still in beta mode? Are you going to commit to the Route Builder function or excuse it as beta forever?

  • Why is ANYONE still bothering to waste their time commenting on this feature request?

    Does anyone actually still believe Strava employees either

    1) Read these comments; or

    2) That the company management actually gives a $h!7 what its users want / need / request?

    As with all these (cycling) companies which achieve a significant degree of market dominance, as soon as they do, they abandon, ignore and abuse the very user base that got them there and all-but-ignore its members/users, even the paying ones (cf the recent debacle concerning Relieve - as though THAT decision was taken in order to look after anything but Strava; it certainly wasn't done in its customers' interests).

    Let's face it, as soon as another platform appears which competes head on with a functionally-rich feature-laden app - or if Garmin, Endemondo or MapMyRide get their collective acts together - many of us will willingly jump ship.

    Arrogant and contemptuous behaviour from Strava.  Time to ignore them and, where possible, abandon them ... THAT is when they'll start to sit up and take notice, not contributing to their manifestly ignored forums, being grateful for whatever crumbs they leave us.

  • It would be very useful since Duplicate option is already available. Makes it easier to plan multiple routes.

  • Please add this.  mapmyride has it and it's very useful.

  • I too would really like to see the 'Reverse Route' option... This would be most helpful, particularly with longer more complex routes i.e. 50km+

  • This would be really helpful.I often find easier to start planning from the destination and backwards. But then my cue sheet gets all wrong.

  • Can't imagine this would be hard to do, after all even Garmin can do it! Would help with route planning, along with the loop to start suggested above.

  • Can't believe that we can't do this,    Routes go both ways.      Dumb.

  • I will love the reverse route option too!

    I always create the same route twice in both directions.
