Strava question...

Postby rider25 » Thu Feb 27, 2014 11:49 am

Hi folks,

I know that the routes I create in Strava appear in the My Routes section. If I like the look of a ride that somebody else has done, or rides that I have done in the past, can I somehow 'favourite' them so they also appear there? Like the starring of segments appearing in My Segments

I know premium users (and there's also a third party site) can download the rides of others but I was looking for a simple way within Strava of collating routes that I'd like to ride in the future.

Cheers!

Create a segment for the whole ride, mark it as 'Private' and it should then appear in your 'My Segments' tab.

Not overly sure but I think you can download other routes if you've gone premium.

Really simple to save other people's rides as GPX files for your own collection, using a tool at RaceShape

So what happens if that person has blocked raceshape on their profile settings?
I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

Thanks folks.

I'll try the alternatives but it's a shape that you're not able to do so within Strava... a scrapbook of routes, as it were.
