Include Power data when Exporting rides from Strava

Please implement the ability to bulk export my ride data in a format the gives me back the data I put in. I own a power meter and the data I put into strava includes power data. You currently only have a function for bulk export in .gpx format which does not give me back the power meter data. You do allow export of individual files in .tcx format so obviously you can do it. If I want to give all my ride data to a coach for instance, I cannot get that info out from Strava,. This severely limits the usefulness of Strava as a training tool and will push people towards using software such as golden cheetah or Training peaks where they have full control of their data.

  • Go to your activity and then in the URL bar append /export_tcx you'll get all your data.

  • If you want the original file that you posted to Strava go to the activity and in the URL bar append /export_original and you'll get your .fit file.

  • Robert, as others have noted, this concerns the bulk export of data, not an individual activity.

  • Exactly Kyle. I'm trying to start coaching some athletes but the only place they have their data saved is in strava and it takes to long to pull every workout 1 at a time. Time/ distance history doesn't help much when trying to get an idea of past training stress. Otherwise strava your doing a good job keep it up.

  • @Elle Anderson, 

    I get that the number of people who would use this feature and how frequently it is used is very small, but that response is weak.  If you could help us all understand the reasoning behind why the power information isn't there in the bulk export, it would go a very long way in restoring out 'faith'.  Is it a technological reason?  IE no standard way to export it?  Is it a financial reason?  IE we just don't want to in fear of losing business to other services?  Is the use case too small to justify the build/test/debug/verify cycle?  Just be straight up about why although the power is in each tcx file submitted, it is not in each tcx file exported.  Else, it just leaves us all wondering "why not?".  Wondering eventually leads to the conclusion of "Well, they just don't care.  Strava was great while it was growing, now it's 'walled garden' time".

  • Gotta agree.  If it was a major undertaking, I could understand the reluctance, but the data's there.  It's a matter of an hour's work at most to write the export interface.  Please add this capability.

  • It's an extra XML field. How difficult can this be for Strava? Really!

  • Would love to see this feature as well. I am very leery about having all my ride data in only one place that cannot bulk export with power data and paying for the privilege. Because of this I cannot think of Strava as my one place "solution" for training record. I still think of Garmin as my program of record for this reason and I'm not paying for that software like I am Strava.

  • What a disgrace... export is useless without power data.

  • Bulk export to tcx should be no brainer here... it's not a rocket science, so I'm pretty sure there are "other" reasons for not providing it.

    So far I was importing to Strava via Garmin Connect so I have all the data I need (in user friendly app I might add), but that has changed recently since I have now two powermeters (one on the bike, on in smart trainer). I still have the data from the "on bike" powermeter in GC, but uploading the trainer data directly to Strava (from Zwift/RGT/etc).

    I now need to make a comparison of those 2 powermeters, but guess what...

    Strava provides a public API so creating a small script to cycle through all/selected activities and downloading them one-by-one (since that it is obviously possible) shouldn't be a big problem, but the point is... I shouldn't have to.

    If I find some time next week I'll look into it.

  • @marek store it on github or similar and I can try to help. This is insane.

  • +1 here...

    Just bought a power meter at Christmas and a new Go Pro 5 to get data overlays. Not having power is pretty poor for a significant layout. I'm amazed that this is not working. Is it really as simple as tweaking the schema and adding 'power' as a new tag?

     

    I tried GPS Babel and it does not include the power data when converting from TCX to GPX so the schema is stripping the power data from source. If the power data was left in, would Garmin Virb editing see the power data?

     

    Very frustrated... Please sort this Strava!

  • OK, maybe this is a Garmin thing as well? I just found the xsd file named in the TCX file that does include power data in:

    https://www8.garmin.com/xmlschemas/ActivityExtensionv2.xsd

    So could the issue be that Garmin needs to get involved to create the new schema that allows a conversion of the <Watts> tag into <ns3:power> in a new version of GPX extension?

    Do people with Garmin action cams have the same issue as GoPro 5 people?

  • I agree, as I would love to be able to export my data bulk with power. This should be available for premium if not all members.

  • Yep, I want it too.  I'll code it for you. For free.  I bet it's not that hard.

  • I'm a premium customer who will not renew unless this functionality is added. I need to access my old data to analyze trends.  What is the best replacement for Strava?

  • I did buy a powermeter a few months ago and just realised that I can't bulk export all my data, even as a premium user. That's not acceptable.

  • Come on Strava, talk to us. If you ignore the user, then some day the user will ignore YOU! Don't forget who pays for you!

     

    @Elle Anderson: did you leave strava?

    This seems like an aspect of basic functionality; why is it not there?

    Why am I asking? There has been no answer for years! Just an official suggestion of "do it yourself".

  • Strava is not interested. They are intentionally making this difficult.... because their flawed and rudimentary analyses are part of the "premium" package. A high school kid could do the programming in an hour.

  • It's kind of funny (SAD)... Reading from Strava Terms of Service:

    You own your content, but give us a right to use it. ...really? If I own it, I want it back. (all of it).

  • I agree this should be something they offer. But since they don't here's a work-around that I managed to hack together. 

    It does require some basic coding competency so I apologize in advance to those of you for which this will be gibberish.

    A fine gentleman wrote a Python code that converts .FIT and .GPX files to CSVs and posted his code on GitHub: https://github.com/mcandocia/fit_processing

    1. Follow his instructions for setting it up in the README file.
    2. Then, open the file names convert_fit_to_csv.py in a text editor
    3. On line 17, where he defines the allowed_fields variable, add 'power' to the enumeration. I put it at the end after 'temperature' but you can put it anywhere in between the [ ].
    4. Save the changes

    When you run the script per his instructions, the CSV output will now include the Power data in Watts. And voila:

  • According to this support page, there is a new bulk export function since May 25th 2018. I just tried it, and it appears to include the activity files in their original format. At least I see lots of gzipped fit files in there. I spot-checked one of the fit files and it also included power data.

    I also tried to export a single original file from an activity by appending /export_original to the URL (also described in the page linked above), and it included power data as well.

    Not sure why this post or the stickied response at the top wasn't updated, but apparently the feature requested here (finally) exists now.
