Indoor elevation should be a separate stat.

Mt. Kenya

Call me a purist, The frequency and magnitude of using indoor riding to build elevation stats seems like an insult to the very sport of cycling itself. Example, when a rider posts 3500+ climb on a 1 hour indoor ride, a stat they never don’t achieve likewise outdoors, it seems disingenuous. Ride and climb away inside, but purist cyclist should be free to compare their stats to other riders that have shunned indoor stats as part of their overall gains. STRAVA, let’s unite and create a separate category for indoor elevation (and miles.) Indoor doesn’t factor wind, temperature and traffic etc.
