    Slide- First, don't i see you all over S*****?
    - Second, you can email strava and get them to remove segments, talk to Elle, she did it for a certain trial on the coast side of tam containing all numbers in the name . You used to be able to email support@strava but it looks like they have a new system.
    I have emailed strava and suggested the idea of having private trails or group private trails, i think others should do the same.
    Strava is barely aware of the issues with mountain bike segments, they are mainly concerned with segments on private property and not aware of the issues of illegal trail segments.
    I happened to run into a strava employee out on a ride after emailing them and further mentioned this issue to them, they are working on it supposedly.

    Finally- I'm coming for the rest of the CC KOM's as soon as i get my new Nomad built up. Good thing none of you know who i am on S****. Your never going to see it coming, muahaahahahaahahaa

    Yeah, I gave in and became part of the problem but having second thoughts. If you had anything to do with the removal of that trail then kudos - you never saw me on that one, that was too much even for a lemming like myself.

    No doubt. One plus the other: problems waiting to happen. Oh well.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    I dunno... my beer might be empty, but my glass is half full. Maybe if "the authorities" see that these no-bike trails are ridden a ton and there are zero injuries and deaths, they'll come to grips that mt. biking ought not be banned from said trails.

    Also, show me where gps tracks lead to action from authorities.

    I asked Elle to delete that trail. Her response seemed to indicate there was at least some concern at the company about stuff like this. For what it's worth, I found her to be very helpful in this regard. Best not to put them up in the first place though, let alone make segments out of them.

    Slightly OT but can anyone tell me how to create a segment? There is a legal trail that runs close to another that has been created. The problem is when I look on the Strava map it doesn't come up. I can see it on the official trail map from the park. Thoughts??

    but you should also read the following:

    the UI changed a little since that video was posted, but it should give you a general idea. this one is a little more up to date on what the interface actually looks like:

    Solution: Go build some sweet kick ass trails and don't tell anyone. Other than me of course.
    I'm not sure how this works.

    Strava has a feature request area:

    https://strava.zendesk.com/forums/20...ature-requests

    So I posted a request for private group segments (segments that aren't in segment explorer and only show up if you've ridden the trail) My request never showed up. I asked them about it and they review all requests before posting them for the public, but I didn't get the sense that it was going to show up. I'd suggest that other people post there as well, the more people request it the more likely they are to add a feature like this. Here's what I posted:

    Strava needs segments that aren't visible to the population at large and don't show up in the segment explorer. Suppose I have a trail on my sprawling 1000 acre ranch that me and my buddies race on. We want to keep the leaderboard, but not have people finding it on strava and coming and riding on my property without an invitation. Here's how this could work.

    1) Allow segments to be marked private/hidden (different from the current definiton of private segments...)
    2) private/hidden segments don't show up in segment explorer
    3) People can only see private/hidden segment leaderboards if they've ridden the trail
    4) private/hidden segments don't show up in your profile except to your followers
    5) If 5 or more people request it a segment becomes private/hidden.

    Thanks for your consideration!


    Post up here if your request gets posted for public comment so others can chime in.

    Thanks

    Done- this will be like the 4th time I've requested this. I told them I'm hopping ship if a similar product comes out with these functions.

    I, for one, do appreciate publicly shared GPS trails. I usually ride alone, due to time constraints and most of my friends having different interests, and I had no means to get that information previously. I did not grew up in the area.

    First thing I will do is opening 5 accounts and hiding the whole damn everything.

I know it's risky -- and I'm not sure I buy the argument myself, just thinking aloud -- but it might be time for a new strategy. At a certain size, our constituency won't be as easy to ignore by those pesky elected officials, and this is a way of making those numbers evident.
    it works that way sometimes.

    there's a state park where i ride that is in the process of officially opening 'undocumented' trails that have been ridden regularly for over 15 years.

    Rangers are coming to realize that there is virtually zero trail conflict, most users a good stewards, we keep the riff-raff out....and we are enjoying the outdoors....which is generally a good thing.

    Adios Strava

    Until strava does something about it I'm out. I took down all my tracks. I didn't have many KOM's, but I had some second and thirds and top 10's that I was pretty psyched about and it hurt a little to take those down. But screw it, it never felt right and there's indirect evidence that a couple trails were logged in response to an increase of activity on those trails on strava. That's enough for me.

    Thinking I might upload tracks for a day or so post ride so I can still share with friends but mark them private after that so there's no history. Compromise.
