The mobile app (on Android), when used for recording bike rides, shows:
- For free users: the average speed of the activity
- For premium users: the current speed

For premium users, there should be an option to switch the display to show the average speed (instead of the current speed). (This option currently does not exist.)

Can you guys at least stop my free trial month so i can go pack to seeing the average speed? Really need it in two days cause i am doing a Traithlon. 
thanks for your help!


@Timwolfgangsee Who forces you to use the Strava app for a triathlon? Sounds like the wrong tool for such an event. If you really want to use your smartphone for recording (a bit strange for swimming if you ask me) then i.e. the Wahoo Fitness app would be a better choice.

I can't see where to vote, but I do wish Strava Paid showed both current and average speeds for road cycling.

This is written for Android, I upvoted but needs to be on Apple Watch too. I'd much rather see my average speed than current speed while cycling, without having to stop and pause.

Show both as option. Not very difficult

Please add the average speed for  paid subscription.  

As mentioned it's not a hard thing to add, especially if you have the feature already for free users. 

l expect this to be solved soon as I have never before seen a paid version of an app downgrading the features available from a free plan.
