How to Export
You can export your Strava data either as individual activities or as a bulk export.
- Go to https://www.strava.com/ and login to your account
- Go to https://www.strava.com/settings/profile
- Scroll down and under the "Download your data" click the "Download" link or button
- Wait for your export to show up in your email
The bulk export consists of a .zip archive folder of one file per activity, named after the date-time YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS-EXERCISE.gpx where EXERCISE is a word like "Run". Each file contains only the name of the activity, e.g. "Morning Run", the start-time, and then a GPX trk of timestamped latlongele points of the exercise.
You can view your activities in a list here:
- From there, you can click on an individual activity permalink
- Then add "/export_original" to the end of the URL and it will download a JSON file with much more information than a GPX
- The Strava API offers access to detailed data, which also includes kudos/likes, segment results, etc.
Third party tools
- You can use tapiriik (for free) to sync GPS files between a number of destinations, including a Dropbox folder.
- This will not sync manually created activities.
- Strava offers an API with a healthy ecosystem. Maybe other services offer export...?
- On IWS 2017, Sebastian Kippe added Strava to Huginn, an open source IFTT alternative in Ruby. See his demo
(this section is a stub and needs expansion!)
Strava has a lot of usual silo features, documenting a few incrementally (add more!)
If we could submit feature requests to Strava, e.g. to make it more indieweb friendly, what would we specifically request?
- Sign-up requires birthday (year month and day)
- 2017-02-28 Strava’s iOS app was nearly completely broken likely due to that day's S3 outage:
