  • Feature request: provide the ability to see mileage by year by bicycle.

    The Training Log currently shows weekly summaries  and I can filter the entire list by activity type. If I filter by Ride, I can narrow down to cycling but can't see any yearly summary or see anything to differentiate mileage by different bicycles.

    This is important for my training because I do recreational rides on one bicycle and training rides on 2 other bicycles, depending on what I'm training for. It is important for bicycle maintenance as well.

    The My Activity screen allows filtering by bicycle no summaries of mileage. The Profile screen shows mileage by bicycle over my entire history of Strava, but not by current year.

    Please add the ability to see mileage by bicycle by year or at least by the current year.

  • Split MTB/eMTB and roadies KPIs.

    Current KPIs look nice for roadies. Some of them could be good for soft XC riders, but not usable for all the others.

    For examples:
    > FTP estimation is wrong for MTB: more rolling resistance, more weight, more drag.

    > Calorie estimation is wrong:
    https://www.strava.com/activities/4153394047/overview 30km mushroom hunting ride, 70% Z2 -> 990kJ
    https://www.strava.com/activities/4157799323/overview 30km hardcore muddy technical ride, 60% Z3 -> 1100kJ
    I suspect the 1st ride to be a lot over estimated.

    > Use the openstreetmap attributes to estimate the difficulty.
    Compacted track is easier to ride than sand one. And high track IMBA level is harder to ride than lower level.

  • Feature request
    Please could you get the phone to talk to the Apple Watch whist completing an activity . This is essential for me so that while cycling I can have an output of my HR while having a display on my bars .
    At the moment it’s one or the other , . I don’t want to take my hand off to read my watch for HR and if I use the phone it does not pick up HR.
    It’s very common in other apps . It’s the only think stopping me becoming premium . It was also featured in a large thread on the old forum requested by many .
    Thanks

  • Hi Strava,

     

    Please include (or put back!) the option to NEST activities on our training log:-

    Often I have separate activities on the same day, i.e. warm up, warm down, workout etc. This creates a loooong entry on that day that isn't easy to print off or scan down when I'm comparing weeks or days mileages.

    Previous version of the Training Log had this, can it be put back please?

    Screenshot attached to highlight my point.

     

    Thanks.

  • I've got a feature request: please add a "transportation" option to activities similar to the "commute" option. This will let users tag any activities where they run/walk/cycle to get around town, not just to/from work. For individual users, we'll be able to see how far we used active transportation, and for city planners using the Heatmaps, they can better gauge P2P trips that are not just exercise (which could arguably go in other directions).

  • I think including an activity type of Pilates would be great because then I could see when I have completed a Pilates class vs when I have completed Yoga classes. This is important to me because as a triathlete I do different types of cross training for different types of benefit - Pilates and Yoga are not the same and have very different benefits to me as a triathlete.

  • New Activity Type: Other

    I see a lot of people suggest a wide range of different activity types. Maybe the best option would be to offer an "Other" type, and potentially give us the option to name our own activity types?

    Strava can't possibly create activity types for every possible type people need, that would result in a vast amount of types which could ultimately make the app less usable. But if you were to offer us the option to make our own types, then we would be able to create our own depending on our needs without affecting Strava as a whole and the other athletes.

    Activity Tags? 

    Another thing that can be considered is the option to tag activities. That could also make it much more easier to compare similar activities without having to use the same activity type.

  • Yesterday I did my first run with Strava and ended up with 3 activities for the same run.  SInce each activity came from a different connected device and has different information I would like to keep all 3, but the problem is that Strava added up the 3 times and distances.  If the activity is during the same timeframe as adjacent activities, the highest time and distance of the set should be used instead of the sum of the 3.

  • idea for an extra power feature:

    Add the possibility to see your evolution for each power interval, e.g. when I go to the 'power curve' section I would be able to click on the 10s power interval (or any power interval) and that would give me an evolution chart of all my 10s power intervals (see picture). It would be like the Fitness curve but then for each power interval.

  • Suzanne Garner:
    You can use this tool to merge the activity files. You'll need to export the activities (I recommend FIT files, but the tool also support GPX and TCX files. I have used it a lot now, for both merging activities when I accidently stop and start a new activity or when I record using different tools that have different data. 

    Combine FIT, GPX or TCX files for Garmin or Strava. Merge Heart Rate Power and GPS (gotoes.org)

    Strava has a help article about it here:

  • Hi, I want to be able to write short private notes (or longer ones that show up if I hover mouse over it) on my training log. I realise I can do this if I write a comment in the description section. But writing a note for oneself is quite a different thing from writing something to be seen by others. I want to be able to record information about the session that I'd not be comfortable with others seeing (super easy to sound like an idiot to others when you're just writing training notes). And having it here in the Training Log section would allow me to see full info about all my runs at once. I'd like to see key information about each run over weeks and months on the training log, so I can get a better overview of my training. Maybe all that's needed is a button beside the activity description box that you can select to make it private. I'm sure lots of people would appreciate this as, like me, they don't want to end up on twitter.com/stravawankers!

    Thanks

  • Thanks, I had seen that article but I don't want to merge the activities; especially don't want to spend time fussing with it every day.  I simply want strava to use common sense. When what they call activities are clearly only one activity the time & distance should reflect that, not be added together.

    I understand and agree, it was merely meant as a temporary solution until they hopeful sort it out within Strava.

  • Downhill Mode

    Implement an activity type that subtracts out lift assisted elevation gains and doesn't count it to your normal cycling statistic. Might also be useful for winter sports. This would really make me consider to pay for the app.

  • Customizable Colors for Workout Type on the training log. 

    The new training log is pretty good for people that engage in a lot of activity types, however for people that engage principally in one or two it could be better.  Races are coloured Red, but "workouts" are generally coloured with a hash which doesn't stand out from the background the same way.  Even an option like "High-Contrast Workouts" would be good.  An important factor in a good training log is to give you an mile high overview of your year and also make the hard days stand out from the easy imho.

    The old training log had a really nice orange colour for workouts which really made it stand out so the difference between a hard day and an easy day was more pronounced.  Also if I could give 10 votes up for Gary Pibworth's suggestion above I would as it's the main problem with the new log.  The old method where the bubbles grouped together for space saving with overall daily mileage but expanded when clicked was brilliant, hopefully you saved that code!

  • I would like to have a Feed URL where I can subscribe my calendar to my Training Log, or an export button that can import multiple events over a range of dates to a calendar on my computer. It will allow me to have a record in my Calendar (Mac) of the dates, times, and durations of my workout. (I would not like the workout name to be the Title of each calendar entry, just the distance, just like in the Training log). The reason this is important is because my weeks fly by without diligent use of my Calendar to account for my time (and on busy weeks I might make excuses about skipping a workout). It's easy to set upcoming appointments in a calendar, but it takes time to assemble a calendar in hindsight. I found an applet on IFTTT that was supposed to do this for me, however the service says it has successfully run well over 100 times and yet it has never made a single entry in my iOS calendar.  

    I am going to go check if Garmin Connect offers this service because if they do, that solves my problem and explains why Strava hasn't done it yet. However loads of Strava users aren't using Garmin…

  • A useful feature would be interval detection. Whatever code you already have to identify "fastest 400m" and "fastest mile" that occurs anywhere within a run, could also be used here to either auto-detect intervals within a workout and produce splits, or detect specific intervals indicated by the user. For instance, I could indicate a workout as a 5xMile fartlek (with 400m jog rest), and instead of showing up as a 6 mile run with a 6:40 average and estimated mile splits of 6, 7, 7, 7, 6, Strava could-auto detect where the miles began and end and report the splits for the "on" intervals at 6-flat each. The option to click on any of the intervals to analyze them separately would also  be superb.

    This would also reduce the need to crop our warm-ups and cool-downs out of activities, so we can keep that mileage counting toward our weekly totals and against our shoe wear without it dragging down the performance metrics or (alternatively) clogging our friends' feeds with three separate activities.

  • Did you delete the three years plus feedback regarding Strava's inability to use the Watch as a HRM? 

    Can we PLEASE get Apple HRM data into the Training Log without using the Watch as the recording device? Multiple apps have figured out how to drive and connect Watch to iPhone app simultaneously, there's no reason you shouldn't be able to do this, especially on the paid plans.

  • I would love to be able to see trends in my speed and mileage over time over all (not per route or per segment, but historically). I am surprised there isn't already a simple way to plot for example my pace for each run vs date over a certain time frame. I know comparing speeds or distances over different routes\terrains is not a perfect apples to apples comparison, but I think it would still be valuable to see overall data like that, especially since you might not have enough data spanning a long period of time for the same route (in extreme example, if you move a lot and rarely run in the same locations).

  • Would like the option on activities to exclude them from power curve calculations in the case of erroneous power data.  This would also help in cases of being able to remove running activities with power data from being mixed in with cycling power curve stats, or vise versa depending on how you want your power curve data tailored.

  • Feature request: add new activity type - "Orienteering".

  • I'd like the ability to add an "Other" category for components. I recently had to replace the di2 battery, and installed a EW-WU111 at the same time. And.. there's no capacity to add this category. I do however want to track the battery install date - it's a consumable, and it'd be nice to track when I installed the wireless module...

    Rather than trying to capture every type of (new and emerging) component, just adding an "other" category should address this pretty easily.

    I’ve worked around it by using “Front & Rear Shocks” which I’ll never need to actually use for my road bike, and just putting in an appropriate description. But... still...

  • I really like the suggestion by Marius Flugsrud , above (Other activity and Activity tagging). For example you don't have a facility to track fencing, let alone its subtypes (sabre / foil / epee). There's been tickets kicking around for years about adding this activity type (your competitors have it...) - but it's clearly not going to happen if it hasn't happened by now. An "Other" category, with the ability to tag would address this pretty elegantly, and also address a bunch of other needs. For example you could use it to tag a workout as "social" "HIIT" "VO2" "My regular crazy workout" "Recovery" etc.

    Cheers

  • Weekly, monthly and yearly summary of heart rate data

    I would like to have a summary of how much I have trained in different heart rate zones during a week, a month and a year. It could be shown in the same way as it does for a single activity, see figure below, but adding several activities together. It would be helpful to go back and look at this when you want to analyze your shape, why you felt in a bad shape or in a good shape at a certain time.

  • Feature request - separate HR zones for running and cycling

    I'm a cyclist and runner and hoping for quite some years that Strava would introduce separate heart rate zones for both sports. As you may know, running and cycling heart rate zones are in a completely different range. My running HR zones are about 6% higher than those for cycling. Post running exercise, this gives a faulty visualization of time spent in the HR zone gauge.

    The pace analysis doesn't cover this data insight either.

    Are there any plans in introducing this any time soon?

    Thanks!

  • RUNNING POWER

    Please add support for running power through Stryd/Garmin. As it is now, running power is only supported with some other watches or with a "offline" sync of Stryd activities.

  • When looking at laps under Workout Analysis, I would like to have the time specified with seconds and one decimal. Currently there are no decimals, so I have to go to Garmin Connect to find them. For short intervals on track the decimal is useful, and it will not hurt even when it's not significant.
