Last 90 days local legend is great for the Johnny come lately New Kid in Town, but for someone like me who has ridden a segment hundreds of times over the years, I’d like to see an “all time local legend”.  Let Johnny know he’s got some work to do to actually earn that crown. 3 rides in the last 90 days does not a legend make.

Hi,

In local legend you only see number of efforts on a segment in last 90 days.
Would be amazing if we could see total number of efforts all time.

I.E. often I run on a track/segment and I see I am a local legend with 400 laps (segment efforts) in last 90 days. I also see I have a total of 5000 laps (segment efforts) on this track.

So it would be great to see (all-time) how I compare with others, who has the most laps/segment efforts (not just last 90 days).

Would you mind clarifying where exactly you think this 'all time total number of segment efforts' could appear?

Hi,

Anywhere 🙂

Could be:

- next to your total number of efforts on a segment

- somewhere close to Local legend status

- etc.

Surely it would not be difficult to implement somewhere?

I find the whole idea of Local Legends to be pretty dumb under the existing rules. I'm currently the local legend on 43 different segments, and out of those, 8 are for just 1 or 2 efforts over 90 days. That's hardly legendary. There are a few very popular segments close to my home that I've ridden between 1500 and 2000 times since 2016. It would make a lot more sense to look at that kind of history. KOMs don't expire after 90 days. Local Legends would make a lot more sense if they were based on all-time efforts.

There should also be some kind of threshold before a segment is eligible for legend status. First, some reasonable number of people need to have ridden the segment within the time period before anyone is declared a legend. Second, a rider must have competed the segment some reasonable number of times before legend status is awarded.

I'm with you @ChrisBerry , these one timers aren't in any way legendary, there should be a threshold. For the idea of an all time local legend that would make it difficult for young people, Strava newcomers and Johnny to ever get this crown. I believe this legend was invented specifically so that everybody regardless of fitness gets a chance to come to the top and therefore only 90 days were selected. It's a bit short if you ask me and I would vote for a year but not an all timer.

"All Time" won't work the same as a motivational tool, most people don't have the determination to go for a goal that may take 5 years to achieve, the 90-day cycle keeps it always achievable and is supposed to keep you motivated to keep your "local legend" status, if you're 1000 attempts ahead of 2nd place in an "All Time" it doesn't motivate you and it doesn't motivate others.

I'm Looking forward Strava to change the display of Local legends similar as segment leader boards. 

 

Add filter on top:     Last 90 Days         All time

         Rank                    User                       No. of efforts

What don’t you like about the current local legends setup?

I think @cyresh is asking for Strava to display a ranking of users based on how many attempts they all have made on a given segment. A Local Legends Leaderboard, so to speak.

Right now, the Local Legends display only shows the record holder, along how many more attempts will get you the crown.

@zecanard You said it, I'm Looking for "A Local Legends Leaderboard" and ranking shall be based on how many attempts they all have made on a given segment.

Add a filter on top with two options at least "Last 90 Days" and "All time"

 

@LandonE At present stage I feel it's an incomplete and less statistic, I'm looking for user should easily get how busy is the given segment.  Also, the current graph just occupies the screen space without saying much.

I think it would be great to see an All Time Local Legend implemented in addition to the current 90-day legend, not instead of.

+1 Love all-time legends and a legends leaderboard (for athletes who opt-in due to privacy)

Would be great to see the max number of reps done on a popular segment in addition to the 90 day legend.

Another vote for the "All Time" legend in addition to the 90-day Not-really-a-legend.
