Now that we have lots of fancy new ride/walk/run/exercise options on Strava where has the old ‘Virtual Ride’ disappeared to?
You can set default uploads to be private in Strava, then edit entries you want folks to see to be "followers" or "everyone".
Does anyone here or know anyone that works for Strava or Garmin? I'm looking to get in touch with them about a thing.
Anyone else starting to get Activities popping up in their feed from people you don't follow, as sort of 'highlighted' activities?
I haven't had it (yet) but you're not alone https://www.reddit.com/r/Strava/comments/yo9oxn/anyone_know_how_i_turn_off_strava_showing_me/
One possible solution is to change your feed ordering to "Latest activities" but according to Strava that re-ordering could take a few days before becoming active. My feed has always been this ordering and I only see friends. So maybe it works...
I went and checked, lo and behold, a stranger's NYC marathon activity. I think my feed ordering is already chronological too.
Is there a way of stopping Strava from showing you any segment that's less than a set length, say 1km? I don't trust GPS to give reliable comparison of multiple efforts over short distances and I'm not interested in my time down a 200m backstreet.
what's with the 'local legend' thing?
i already know i'm a fookin' legend, i don't need strava telling me.
Fookin' legend is national level, local is just regional
I tweeted them ages ago about that stupid feature. They email me often to tell me I lost my "Local Legend" status on some fucking road that I've only been down once.
Mar 2021 in fact...
"Uh oh! You’re not the Local Legend anymore" having done one ride, EVER, of a segment. Hey @Strava can you turn off the local legend email nonsense please?
You can turn the feature off in the settings, then you won't be part of the leaderboards.
They might've added that in the last 12 months but I couldn't find any way to disable when I was getting stupid notifications.
If you go to https://www.strava.com/settings/privacy you will find the following settings:

Has the strava 10k challenge (running) for December disappeared? Or did it never exist?
I just looked and it isn't there for me either but I can't remember if I signed up to it or not!
This link working? https://www.strava.com/challenges/December-10k-2022
Well there it is. Showing on my profile again too. Weird!
