    Strava Elevation Question

    On sunday, I went for a ride (92km with an elevation of just over 700 meters) According to Strava, my previous best climbing ride was 103 m, yet on my profile page, it still shows my biggest climb as 103 meters? Just a bit puzzled, as it has not updated since sunday? I uploaded from my Garmin...

    Strava Premium cost difference

    Hi Guys I've been using Strava free for 18 months or so now and having got a Garmin Edge 820, I thought I'd go premium and get the segments live on screen to add a bit of interest. I'm slightly puzzled by the cost. If I go on their website and "go premium" it's £39.99/yr or £3.99/mo. But if...

    Strava sharing to Facebook broken?

    Anyone use Strava website and share to Facebook? It's worked fine for the past couple of years, it copies across the ride details and a mini map of the ride, for the last few days though nothing. If I manually paste the Strava activity url and post onto Facebook all I see is the html link and...

    Strava Fly-by setting or bug?

    On my commute I shadowed a guy going at a decent rate for a few miles then he turned off. When I got home I looked to see if he was on fly-by, he did not show up but someone further up the road did so I looked at their fly-bys and the guy just in front of me appeared on their list. Also when I...

    Kids on Strava - Sharing my Garmin?

    Having recently wowed the kids with two KOMs on Strava (they are easily impressed due to a lifetime of paternal underachievement!) they now both want me to make them a Strava account so they can record times too: basically, I think they just want to see their names on a chart somewhere! Anyway I...

    Garmin and Strava Live

    Finally got on board the Garmin band wagon with a 520, one of my reasons for wanting this one is the Strava Live Segments. I have very little time to do cycling so tend to go for a jolly good all out thrash whenever I get a chance- the Strava Live has really pushed me to increase my...

    Is this cheating?

    Only been on Strava a couple of weeks and just bagged my first KOM - out of 360. Now whilst my fellow Strivers ( Stravettes?) may be in awe of my newfound prowess, I know it was almost solely achieved due to my shameless manipulation of the wind conditions. There is a north facing straight...

    How to add heart rate data to Strava rides

    It is frustrating when you are using HRM data to monitor your fitness (e.g. Strava fitness and freshness) and you end up with a ride with no HRM data, either because you forgot to wear your HR band or the battery went. Here is a way you can insert an average HR across the ride: I managed to...

    Strava Woes

    Anyone else still having problems with Strava? My Ride London segments are still wrong, Strava thinks I've done some of the segments 3 times, yet I've only entered twice! It's only the earlier ones that seem out and all the rides I've logged since are fine

    Strava not fetching RideLondon

    My Garmin Connect account is linked to Strava, and for months no issues. Right now it isn't showing yesterday's RideLondon, yet it does show my route to/from the start/finishes. Would it be down to the hold ups or something that is causing it? Originally the rides before and after didn't show...

    Strava speeds

    Does anybody know how accurate the speed measurement is on Strava? Apparently my top speed today was 52.1mph, this would have been on the long descent from Bury hill down to Arundel. It's quick and is a lovely reward for the climb up there but 50mph seems off.

    A change in Strava

    I have noticed that before this month, all rides used the start time as the time stamp for a ride. Now all my rides use the end time as the time stamp. I don't recall changing my settings. Both the rides below started around 8am.

    I keep getting emails from Strava offering 30 days Free upgrade to Premium, on each occasion when I click through they want credit card details before giving me something free. I refuse to do this & email them n each occasion advising them, when they offer a free trail it should be exactly that...

    Found Strava useful, now I don`t...............

    I used to be very "bah humbug" when it came to Strava, and being competitive, but slowly, it grew on me and I started to get the bug, getting faster and fitter as time went on. Now, I`m finding the opposite, I feel slow and useless, I`ve scraped together 4 KOM`s in the last 3 years when others...

    If it isn't on Strava ( other route loggers are available) it didn't happen

    I hear this often, sometimes in jest, sometimes I'm not sure. Now I habitually log my rides on Strava I'm in two minds about this sentiment. On one hand, I like to take people at their word, about their rides, on the other hand, I often hear people telling me about their 400km ride in...

    Strava on phone or Garmin - what's more accurate?

    Today, according to my Garmin 200, I cycled 36 miles with 2300 ft of elevation. According to my brother's phone with strava on it, we cycled 36 miles with about 1790 ft of elevation. What one is the right one?
