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.

  • How many obscure categories have been added to Strava since this request was made? Velobike? Wheelchair? Virtual rides and runs? Stair Stepper? It can't be that hard to add a field to the DB and let users select "motorsport". Who knows, you might even make some money doing it. lol.

  • Anything to get moto riders to not tag their rides as bicycle rides would be an improvement. I am interested in checking out bicycle rides but could not care less about motos (except when they ruin mountain bike trails).

  • @Tom Wardrop only problem i've seen for ebike is it accounts for elevation gains which suck for challenges (kinda cheating, but then who cares lol). I joined a 'challenge' but a ride i logged on a moto marked as ebike gave me credit for elev gain so i opted out of the challenge, out of guilt.

    But i'd say keep doing it so the devs finally create a moto activity type.  Butt hurt kom'rs can cry - its not the end of the world.

    Strava: vote for activity type: Motorcycle

  • That's well and good, Moe, but unfortunately I'm flagging all the moto users on my local trails, even though they are legal to use them. Why? because I like comparing times (to other cyclists) to know where I need to pick up the pace, and even though on many downhills I can beat the times of the moto guys, there is no way I'm doing 30mph uphill.

  • @ Paul Heller

    So instead of helping the community, you'd rather just be a dick?

  • Bad idea.

    There's too many guys riding well beyond their skill level out on the trails, we don't need to provide an incentive to create more.  Head-ons are no good.  I've been in plenty with guys that are riding well beyond there capabilities.

    As too, at least in CA, the last thing we need to do is make some trails public.  There are many entities out there trying to find reasons to shut down more and more of our OHV trails.  Tracking many of these rides will simply give our opposition much more to use against us.
