  2. Ugh! Wow, that breaks my heart.

    Google strava help, there may be a way (sorry, I doubt, but still). Raise some tickets on https://strava.zendesk.com

    And change all your passwords. Your son has all privileges revoked.

    Oh, and change your will :smile:

    Sorry to hear.

    I don't use Strava extensively as I prefer MyCyclingLog. Everynow and then I download all my ride information as a csv file in case something untowards happens,

    Not backed up anywhere else, like on Garmin connect?

  8. Really? Is it that important? Im not being funny, honestly.

    The only thing that would annoy me is if there were a lot of rides abroad that I would like to do again and couldnt remember where they were. Otherwise I would draw a line under it and start again.

    I feel your pain. I like my graphs and stats almost as much as fettling and riding. Surely Strava can do something.

    We could have a whip round. Kilometres or Miles?

    That's awful. As any cyclist knows, if its not recorded on Strava then it never really happened.

    You are just going to have to go and do them again.

  13. And I thought it was the end of the world when my Garmin only saved the last ride but lost the previous one.

    Commiserations :hugs:

    ...at least you have the fun of building it all up again :wahhey:

    How come he had access to your Strava profile settings, enough to be able to delete it?
