How do I remove other athletes from my group ride

I've been for a ride today at a MTB trail centre, with 1 friend.

As he had strava on he has appeared in Group Ride as Athlete you Follow.

However someone else is in Other Athletes.

 

Is it possible to actually tag the other person in the ride?

Is it possible to remove Other Athletes, I have no interest in them.

 

Thanks

  • Bump...

     

    I'd liek to know this too please.

     

    I regularly collect random cyclists on my ride and being an individualist id rather not have them on my ride.

     

    If nothing else the fact I just happened to ride a small portion of my ride with another randommer does not mean that I "rode" with them.

  • Bump...

     

    I have had this on a few occasions now and have contacted Starva via support and they have removed this in the background somehow.

     

    Would it not be a good idea to have a "Remove Linked Rider" as a feature for us users?

  • Fully agree. It's even worse with Zwift now. Getting tagged with sometimes hundreds of people. C'mon strava, give the ability to remove folk.

  • This would be great, the amount of times it comes up with other riders on my ride.  Let us have this option please....

  • Yeah, that would be a great feature to remove riders from your group ride that you don't know. Come on Strava add this as an option please.

  • Bump.

    Assuming it was a group ride simply because two people were on the same section at the same time is ridiculous.

  • I'm agree. Also look at this ride, how the hell is that guy considered to be part of a group ride with me? Bananas.

  • Same comments as above - Strava please react!

  • The functionality to remove an athlete exists when you access Strava via the website and not the app.   Simply open your ride, click on the people symbol and the next screen shows all the athletes with a 'Remove Athlete' button next to each....

  • Please allow me to turn off group activities in my privacy settings. I do not want to be tagged on a ride with strangers and it is creepy that this is a default. I also don't feel that I should have to go into EVERY ride to remove other athletes who I happen to ride by or share a few miles with. Most importantly this is a safety issue - I do not want some stranger to know who I am especially when they are being inappropriate and do not want to give them ideas about how they can contact me off the trail.

  • It is frustrating that I need to go every time to an activity to remove an athlete from it. I even get a message that my activities will no longer be grouped with such an athlete, but every time I need to login via web and remove such user.

  • IN last week, I deleted other riders from my rides and it still shows that I rode with others. In past when I deleted riders they did not show on my ride.

  • It is beyond annoying, more like downright creepy, that Strava has been aware of this issue for a long time and yet does nothing to provide its users with the option of preventing random groupings in the first place. The proposed solution of logging into the website and having to delete each grouping individually is ridiculous. Fix this, or you'll be losing users.

  • I just noticed that the ability to remove an athlete has disappeared!  Now there is a button to "leave group".  So instead of removing the unknown athlete, you are removing yourself!  Talk about a backwards step!

    Someone tell me I'm wrong.

  • I have had issues on and off since summer.  I would delete athlete and they still show up. Seemed corrected for a few months then happened again a few weeks ago. Sent tickets. Then like you noticed I leave group and delete me from all other riders. Not happy with this.

  • Bump. Please fix this, it’s super creepy. And don’t say that I should do it on web. I only use my iPhone.

  • This 'feature' still exists and it is creepy, as stated above. It is a safety issue. It is a privacy issue. It's nobody's business that they be included in my ride or me in theirs. 

    Just because I walk, run, ride, beside some other Strava user for X amount of time/distance does not indicate that they are associated with me nor that I want them to be associated. Please, as stated above many times, remove this feature or allow the paying member to exclude themselves from being added to someone else's ride/my ride. 

    Repeating what I wrote in 2018: Please allow me to turn off group activities in my privacy settings. I do not want to be tagged on a ride with strangers and it is creepy that this is a default. I also don't feel that I should have to go into EVERY ride to remove other athletes who I happen to ride by or share a few miles with. Most importantly this is a safety issue - I do not want some stranger to know who I am especially when they are being inappropriate and do not want to give them ideas about how they can contact me off the trail.

  • Would also be great to be able to add others that have ridden a portion of their ride with you but not deemed long enough to group together. Some way to override this both ways would be a great update feature.

  • If there's anybody still struggling with this, I've found the solution on the official support page:

    https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/216919497-Group-Activities

    (Tldr: In web browser you can leave the group)

  • Leaving a group removes yourself, which unlinks you from the people you actually rode with. This DOES NOT solve the core issue of removing an individual from your ride.

    Strava, please address this.

  • So someone I went on a walk with is automatically added to my strava even though neither of us added each other AND I cannot delete this. What?! Massive privacy issues. Do we need to involve the law in this?

  • Worse than that, the other person's route is showing in place of mine including getting into their car and driving after the ride.  When I visit my activity it's my own ride but in the feed it shows his as mine...WTF?

  • I just had the same problem but fixed it by blocking the tag along rider. Seems like overkill, but it works. 🤷‍♂️
