Strava for Adventure Motorcycle and Moto-X Communities

Recently, I did an experiment with the Strava App during a dirt bike ride through Ocotillo Wells.  As suspected, the Strava App worked great, minus the obvious—“Calories” burned.  I suspect that this might be in question since I was not wearing a heart monitor, and I was not riding my bicycle.  That said, I really see an opportunity to service a whole other market that is lacking the level ease and detail Strava can provide.  What I am suggesting is a re-brand, sister app (based on the current Strava App) specifically targeted for the Adventure / Dirt Bike / Moto-Cross rider.  This off-shoot of the popular Strava App would maintain the current features, update the algorithm for calorie consumption, and provide the user with a setting to account for laps automatically. The new feature of accounting for laps can provide increased detail; with split times, best lap, average lap time etc… thus providing a training tool that I foresee many riders would take seriously. By providing this capability to the Adventure / Dirt Bike / Moto-Cross rider, Strava can easily establish itself as the affordable, premier GPS athletic activity tracking option for motorcycle enthusiasts.

  • Looks like it's time to start ruining it for the mtn bikers in my area since strava is completely ignoring this.

     

    or time to start a new company.

  • Hey all, I've been following this thread for a while and I think I may have a solution for you.  Its an app I created called Black Box Performance Tracker and its like Strava but it gives points for turns, elevation change and miles traveled, and its designed specifically for motorsports enthusiasts, (motorcycle, snowmobile, atv, sport bike, etc.).  You can even challenge you buddies to get the most points.  We just got it up and running again and would love to get your feedback, we are still in beta testing so any and all comments are welcome.  Just head to Black Box Performance Tracker.com

    Thanks,

    Scott Niewohner (Founder)

  • 4+ years later and still no motocross?! Garmin has a motocross setting. Smh. So I’ve decided to use e-bike.  How many people Kite-surf? Or even use e-bike for Strava?

  • They could use it for far more than dirt bikes. Snowmobiles? Side by sides? 4 wheelers? All could have their own designation.

  • i have the same problem and i wear a heart rate monitor while riding.  i am training for an event and the Strava results for calories are not helpful.

    I see a lot of requests for this and no responses from Strava development?

    best regards

  • agreed a great idea. if starva offers it i believe it will be widely used. if starva does not offer it, folks will just use the bike app and post amazing times. starva should also eliminate STRAVE as the autocorrect when typing STRAVA

  • I'd like this feature.  I have a dual sport.  I'd like to be able to go survey roads in my free time for my buddies and I to go ride later - the cost of 15km dead end roads is a lot less on a 200k motorcycle ride than a bike ride.  But I don't want to KOM every ride when I put the ride in as a "ride".  the "other" category doesn't exist anymore, maybe I'll just call my motorbike rides yoga sessions or something.

  • What is taking so long strava!!! Use all the same data from bicycle and just re name a new category as off-road. Seems like more and more strava users want it, how many request do we need befor it becomes a reality?

  • Full functionality would be epic. Fitness, speed and all of the data and local competition is critical to getting better and faster and having more fun. We need this. I am surprised they won't do it.

  • What does it take to get this added? it's not like everyone that uses this, or even a fraction of them come on here to chat about this on the support forums. Can someone from Strava chime in?

  • So I do.....mountain biking, cycling, dirt biking (trails), dual sport, and occasionally ride the track. Garmin Connect is great for seeing all this in one place if you want or filtering it out, if you only want to see certain things......

    Would be nice to see it all in Strava, for the benefits Strava has over Garmin Connect. But until then.....

  • Thanks Elle,

    Yes that would be great. A "motorcycle" activity would be great. And the ability to create segments, have leaderboards, and see the vital stats would be awesome. I do wear a heart rate monitor and use a Garmin Edge 500 on the motorcycle. So stats of interest would distance, time, elevation, ave speed, and max speed. Like Mountain bikers, we would be interested in the following types of segments; climbs, descents, and loops.

    The above would be Fantastic!!

    ---------

    Now Icing on the cake would be a the ability to see "Ride" separate from "moto" on the training log. So I could see how much I'm riding on bicycle vs. the motorcycle. Almost every motorcyle racer trains on a bike (either road or mountain.) This could even be done in the Training Log, by either adding another check box labeled "include Moto", much like the "Include Commutes" checkbox. Or we could just mark all moto rides as a "commute" to filter these miles out of Rides. Just an idea.......

    If you add this activity type. I'll pay and go premium:-)

  • I  use this app to track my MTB'ing and Dirt Biking adventures. If you could make a separate activity for Dirt Bikers/Adventure riders it would add another group of clientele to this app!

  • Just started using Strava, and echo all the sentiments here. I run, cycle and off-road motorcycle (mostly byways) and use Garmin Connect; Strava is obviously great for the first two as it automatically takes all the data from Garmin, but I have to delete all my motorcycle rides after becoming KOM in several different instances (and before annoying the previous KOM on each!). It would be great to still retain the heartbeart function, but I'd accept basic functionality just to be able to track my previous rides and see how other people compare!

  • I've been hoping for the same!  As a very active woman in motorsports I would love to use Strava to record on-road motorcycling, off-road motorcycling and car routes.  Please please please add more activity types so I can use this great app for all my activities!  Thanks for listening!

  • Another vote for a feature that would allow motorbike runs to be separated from cycle runs.

  • This definitely needs to be implemented.  It's only been a bit over a year, c'mon Strava!

    Currently I just code off road races as 'workout' but I see others that leave them as bicycle rides, so it screws up leaderboards when multi use trails are used, get the moto ride flagged, messes up challenges if the moto rider is also a biker/runner that participates in them, etc.

    Of course, Strava could also add some algorithms and flag a 'ride' automatically if someone goes uphill at a pace that isn't humanly possible.  That should also be done to get the car rides home out of the bike leaderboards and would have the added benefit of helping filter out moto rides from bicycle rides.

  • Yes, please add motocross/dirt bike as an activity as I cycle and moto, it would be great to track separately. Also, a lot of dirtbike moto trails overlap with mountain bike trails.

  • I'd like this feature too. I dirtbike, enduro, harescaramble etc.  It could simply be called "motorsports".  Just a single category for those of us who also happen to train using motorized vehicles.  Later, if it proves to be popular and generates for pay users, then the categories could be tweaked to include specific motorized activities.  Until some form of motorsports category is added to Strava, I will not become a paid premium member.  It's an incomplete product for my purposes until this occurs.  Polluting other categories and competing in their KOMs etc, is unfair.  How hard can it be to add a single category?  There's one for e-bikes.. I'm sure you'd have a lot more participate in the motorsports category than you do the e-bike category.

  • Today, fo the first time, I tried Strava on my motorcycle ride and quite frankly, that's awesome... Of course, I logged it as Ride, and got flagged because "it seems that I used an engine...". Of course, I did... I don't push my motorcycle...

     

    Please add a Motorcycle option in Strava. Pretty please.

  • Use the ebike category.  Motors are acceptable there.

  • Actually it's kind of weird that ebikes are addressed.  Isn't every other category human powered? At any rate ebike seems like a good place to also put motorized.
