The 'Matched Rides' feature is brilliant, and very reliable. Can we use it to automatically set metadata for matched activities? 

For example; I use a different bike to commute than to work out, and my commute always takes the same route. It would be brilliant if when I rode that route, and Strava matched it against my other commutes, it automatically tagged it as a commute, and even better, could match the bike I rode in the 'gear' section too. At the moment I have to go in and update each ride, and it's a it of a pain because I forget half the time and then my data's all messy.

In the spirit of making Strava even more "smart", it would be nice if we could automatically tagg certain activities based on historical ones. Eg. 

If I am commuting every morning / evening (Home > Work and Work > Home), the system should be able to automatically label the future ones as Commute

If I am hiding some activities from my feed (eg. all Commute ones), the system should be able to hide them in the future as well


If I had the ability to add the location of my workplace then my commutes could be easily auto-tagged and silenced. In addition to cleaning up the feed (I feel bad about blowing up my friends feeds with my commuting activity) it would also save me time and prevent me from forgetting to tag a ride as a commute.


There is a web app for this: 

You can set your home and work location there and it will tag it and optionally silence and select gear for it. It works for me for five years now.


Hey Strava 🗺


- I ride back and forth everyday of the week to go to the office, the same route, same distance 

- I need to update these rides manually to say it's commuting and to affect the right bike 


- Would be easy to recognize it or define a "commute" route and automatically tag it as "commute" and attach to it the correct bike and some others settings for instance 

Thanks for reading

This is exactly what I need. It's such a pain to edit every commute! 👍
