Segment matching should be based on GPS & elevation

Quite a few times I've noticed that when there are two roads/paths that are close to parallel, despite having very different elevation profiles, Strava will still match rides along one segment to the other one. It's not uncommon to have a situation where one road/path is flat, and another close by involves a significant increase in elevation, so surely Strava could use the elevation data to determine which road/path the rider/runner is on?



  • There needs to be a way for Strava to differentiate better between parallel tracks even if routes are the same. A local MTB segment is next to a fast road, so segment leaders are apparently riding twisty single track at 70kph or higher if they left GPS on in car on way home.
