Around 1 in 5 people have a disability, which often limits their access to activities - such as cycling, mountain biking, and commuting on public transport.
There is currently a mix of activity types on Strava, which may be used by people with impairments or disabilities. These include: - Ride
- E-Bike Ride
I propose that Strava adds a feature similar to “Commute” which would enable users with impairments (disabilities) to signal they have undertaken that activity with a Disability or Impairment. This would enable disability advocacy groups to show the usage of trails, facilities and infrastructure relative to other groups.
It is well established that poeple with impairments (disabilities) undertake a range of activites using a variety of standard, modified, or specific equipment. Because of this, the existing “Handcycles” or “Wheelchairs” categories are not fit for purpose and it is not possible to use those categories to get useage insights.
