Please add 'bush clearing' and/or tree branch trimming to activities (or similar).

On MTB trails, this activity is quite common and strenuous.
It is usually performed by the same cyclists who practice another type of activity (cycling, running, etc.)

Furthermore, with this type of activity available on the app, it would serve as an INCENTIVE for people to participate more in this also important stage of MTB activity.
Thanks!

It would be amazing to add “Trail Work” as a “sport”/activity! Support your local trail stewards, builders and maintainers across the globe!!

I couldn’t agree more and would add that while much of the work is done by  The MTB community, many trails are multi-use and used by many Strava users (hikers, trail runners, etc.) Further reason to add Trail Maintenance as an activity.

It could also help keep track of volunteer hours for municipalities and nonprofits.
