When reversing a route Strava recalculates the route to what it thinks is the best route. It should be possible to reverse the route with no recalculation. Simply keep it 100% the same as the original route just reversing it. Could be solved with a toggle box «Do not recalculate the route. Keep as is, just reverse the route». By default Strava can recalculate, if toggled however it would not. 


When creating a route I'd like a checkbox for "This route is out and back" so the return back portion is automatically created, returning via the same route taken out.

We really need this. We have a race that the direction changes each year, and the route is eactly the same. Strava changes it when we try reverse


The route planner currently reroutes due to one way streets, this would still be needed.  What I find irritating about the route planner is where a manual point has been included that is ignored when the route is reversed.

Hi, I've downloaded an 855.85 mile GPX route to Strava. That's worked. The problem is it goes anti clockwise and I want it to clockwise. When I reverse the route it changes in a certain area, shortening it slightly and I'm unable manually make the correct distance. Does anyone know what's going on?
