Designate between a "Group" and a "Solo" ride on Strava

This would allow Strava cyclists to tag a ride as a group ride or a solo ride, and also be able to sort segment leaderboards by those filters.

  • Brilliant! But doubt it will stop the bandits riding around taking KOM's as a team

  • This clasification between groups and individuals to set KOMs on segments would be really necessary, in my opinion.

    Please, Strava team, implement the sooner the better to do this app greater than already is.

    Thank you.

  • I'm not seeking KOM's - I just want to monitor performance improvements in segments and full activities.  Not being able to differentiate solo vs group rides makes this more difficult for this goal.  Could you use historical sensor data (watts) and environmental data (wind speed and direction) to help identify group vs solo activity?  Even better, can you identify pulling vs not pulling?

  • This feature should automatically register strava already knows when you rode together with others for individual segments it could determine if the segment was completed as part of a group or not  (when someone gets dropped/breaks away from the group for part of the ride). The basis for this functionality would seem to already exist in fly-bys...

  • I'm not sure if Fly By's are accurate enough, I know from looking at some of my rides the Fly By graphics show a different picture as to what really happened when riding in a group, people out of order etc. Trouble is, if you are riding by yourself but overtake a heap of people during a segment, how does Strava determine if you rode by yourself or with the group.

     

    Having said that, I've lost a few KoM's lately by Group TT's so some way of telling the difference would be good (self regulation will never work)

  • We don't need self regulation, let the users regulate.

    Add a solo/group switch which is set to group when Strava detects a group (which it does pretty well). Then add the 'Group effort set as solo ride" option to the flag-option. When you can be flagged when you don't set the group option people will start to set it correctly.

    Groups can still have their KOMs, no problem. We just want to compare solo rides to solo efforts.

  • have a look at this article, I know one of these guys and the other is colleague of another friend, this guy literally plans his rides to chase KOMs and gets them, Susan Corda have seen all the cheats on Zwift, they change there weight and change there gender, it happens everywhere, some have pride about their achievements and dont cheat

  • When the notification popped in my computer screen and I saw the title... for one GLORIOUS moment I excitedly clicked on it and thought "here is the final answer that makes strava brilliant".    Then I just saw that it was a continuation on the thread.

     

    I have ACTIVELY said no to friends to join me on certain favoured rides, (for example Richmond Park London), because I know that all it takes is a couple of cars to force us into single file and next thing we're drafting.  If I smash a few segments together, then I'll never be able to beat myself again SOLO.

    I'm not saying DRAFTING rides are cheating, but if I beat someone, I want to know that I did it because it was clean, not because I was in a group.  Likewise if someone beats me and I find out they've been cheating, then it spoils Strava.

    :-(....

  • Maybe the best thing would be for people to get out and make some friends...

  • Momma mia there are many exceptions, you can filter your times by age group,gender, clubs, only your times etc, power meters are the best way to measure effort as they measure how hard your constantly pushing those pedals, and this has flaws as large people are able to produce greater power than a small bodied athletes and there numbers that take into consideration.

  • Strava, in late 2017 and....still the "house of cheaters" hahahaha!!!

    Well, years ago since they are able to detect automatically group activities... BUT you still have to fight against team trimetrial specialists... or... maybe a professional cyclist peloton in a competition...

    Good luck!!

  • People, you have to understand that Strava want to keep motivated those people whom never will be able to achieve a "solo" KOM or top10... hahaha.
    They are also clients, in fact, the most of them are "groupies".
    If Strava is the home of cheaters is because they want as that.
    People don't like reality. They prefer others think that a time achieved in a group effort with 18mph tail wind (that viewers don't know it existed) is really the same time others do in a solo ride with no wind.
    The same merits! Why not? hahahahaha
    That's why Strava don't register wind with the time done, as Garmin Connect, Endomondo... are doing.
    Strava is quite a big joke.
