    πŸ˜€ must admit to throwing the odd road ride into the mix!

    Ashamed to say it but apart from the big bike bash last august which is not exactly the peaks I haven’t ridden a MTB in anger since last January. πŸ™

    Guilty mountain bike is getting one ride a month at the moment. It is filthy out there. If it helps most of my riding has been in my kitchen for the last 3 months. I can’t wait for some dry trails.

    Cant say I check it very often, but I’m still doing my bit for the MTB minority.

    I was only third last week, only 257miles, and i did 2 mtb rides as well as a few road miles. 2 more mtb rides than in the previous 2 months!

    what does impress me is how some people can do 300+ miles

    I find the commuters more annoying. Some people log every time they even look at a bike. Don’t see the point of logging every commute on Strava.

    Just looked on the stw club page, I had the longest ride last week. Whoo hoo πŸ˜† As for being all roadies well I’m guilty as charged atm. The grounds so saturated that it’s so much easier just to jump on the road bike, knock out some miles, get back and give it a quick wipe down. Hoping to get out on the mtb this coming Sunday though 8)

    Yep, I’m one of those. The thing is I commute by bike everyday, sometimes I go straight to/from work (2.5 miles), sometimes I add a bit on. Over the course of a year even the short commutes add up.

    I commute 20+ miles a day on my road bike. What’s different about me logging that and someone logging 10 miles at a trail centre??

    This. Plus I’m using the Garmin for HR/speed/cadence/power stuff anyway, so why would I go through and only upload the ‘proper’ rides.

    Hadn’t realised how many people are in the group.

    +1, mine is 16-17miles each way.

    Commutes shouldn’t count because you are riding to work.
    Real rides are riding INSTEAD OF WORK.
    Big difference .

    Just joined, woeful mileage and climbing ATM. Is anybody else using an iPhone 4 finding strava crashes reapeatedly on a thing other than recoding a ride?

    And no one has a cake stop on a commute.

    Don’t care about commuting, it’s all riding.

    About 50/50 mountain road at the minute – well nothing for 10 days due to the damm cold…

    No, rides are when you do something you like, work is the cake stop in the middle of a ride.

    Had a thought the other day that at least the group stats should be restrictable to only rides marked road/mtb for groups aimed at specific ride types.

    Not that I’m going to suggest that to Strava when I could do a Zynga on them and… oh I can’t be arsed doing work like stuff in valuable riding time, I’ll suggest it to them.

    Mrmo that is a good response .

    Monkeychild, is your route back home identical to your route to work but just in reverse?
    If so…

    What if you extend your commute to make it a longer ride? Is that acceptable?

    Nice to see I’m way down the list for mileage. Imaging how far down I’d be if I didn’t log my 5-mile-a-day commute… πŸ™‚

    my average speed is 28 mph

    is disappoint πŸ™

    (or, rather, WTF kind of crap algorithm must they have to arrive at that ? I’d be surprised if my peak speed was much over that)

    You’d think they’d do a function where you tick mtb ride or road ride and then you could filter between the two? Surely it would’t be that hard. My local mtb club Strava page is basically topped by roadies every week so it would be nice to see either/or.

    I also wish they’d allow you to very quickly toggle between imperial and metric units at a glance- I know this sounds weird but I prefer to look at my running stats in metric and cycling in imperial for some reason.

    If you use the Strava Android apps you can do that as they have a separate app for each.

    In theory not hard, in practice? What makes an mtb ride an mtb ride? Many mtb rides I do involve roads, it is how you link sections. Other times I have taken the road bike onto offroad sections.

    It would be nice to have some form of filtering, if only so I can quickly see how little use the mtb is actually getting!

    If you import rides from gpx files or other devices there is actually a “Commuting” checkbox (or there used to be) – but it doesn’t seem to do anything!

    My commute is a bit short: only 4.5km. So I apply a “Fun kms only” rule and only turn on Strava for commutes where I go the long way round, or real rides.

    Maybe the rides should be categorised by tyre width?

    25mm and under = proper road ride, anything else = on/off road pootle πŸ˜‰

    Thank god for 25.5mm tyres πŸ™‚
