I’m probably not the first suggesting this, but it would be so great if it was possible to distinguish between running and running with a stroller. This also goes for other sports like riding with a bike trailer, skiing with a sled and hiking with a baby carrier. Maybe it could be solved with a simple box where you could check of for carried weight to an activity? That would make it possible also to mark runs with weight vests, hikes with heavy backpacks and so on. The main aim for this application should be that activities with added weight don’t mess up your stats, and it would also be nice to be able to compare stroller runs etc. As a new parent it can be challenging to priorities the time to work out, so a little motivation boost from Strava would be highly appreciated 🙂

Nice one. ATM, I have added an extra bike to my equipment that’s heavier than the one I’m riding plus the additional weight (bags, child seat etc). This one works as a workaround but your idea is much better as I would  need to create an extra bike for every additional equipment.

I completely agree that a box to check to tag an activity as being done with a stroller/trailer/extra weight would be the ideal solution. My workaround has been coming up my own tags that I leave in the comments of the activity, then I can search those tags in the "My Activities" page, export to excel then total them up. A bit more manual than ideal, but I think it keeps things relatively accurate. (DBSD here is Double Booty Stroller Duty for running with both of my girls 🙂

Dear Strava - why is it I can’t log my activity as a buggy run?? Yesterday I did this 7 months after giving birth, between breastfeeds, pushing 8kg of baby, on next to no sleep…

When E-Bike ride, SUP and snowshoeing are options, surely we can do better for all the parents deserving of kudos out there?

I very strongly agree.

This is also interesting for those who follow their performance stats as this can explain a significant drop most of the time
