    Strava Question

    If you are trying to get traced for a long Strava route, but need to go off route mid-way (for example, to get some stashed water), does Strava count you as having completed the entire route when you get back on it or does it disqualify you from the route because you veered off course for a bit?

    Strava Question

    Strava gets a little wonky about how segments work. Essentially, as long as you hit the beginning and ending points and some part of the trail, it will count you for the segment. At my local riding area, there is a couple segments I get counted on, even though I don't ride them. I hit the beginning and ending points, but veer well off the segment. Of course my times for these erroneous segments are terrible.
    It's glitches like this that make the KOM/QOM not very relevant.
