Outdoor elliptical cycling stats are bundled with regular cycling stats because there is no separate activity for elliptical cycling. This leads most of us elliptical cyclists to log our rides are regular cycle rides, however riding an elliptical bicycle is extremely different to riding a regular cycle, and so stats can be wildly different.
For those of us who ride both elliptical and regular bikes, it causes us to either need to have two Strava accounts, or to only ever log one and not the other.
There are 49 clubs related to elliptical cycling on Strava:
There are 1,689 members of this elliptical cycling club: https://www.strava.com/clubs/ElliptiGO
Thanks for submitting your idea and for including the helpful information on why it's important and the relevant clubs. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.
I wholeheartedly agree. I also know it’s challenging for those who ride stand up bicycles and seated bicycles to keep their data separate, most end up with duplicate accounts.
I would very much like this capability. There are already many different types of bike options allowed and this would be one more.
I don’t see how to vote though. Thanks.

This is long overdue.
Please look at this idea, as it could accomplish this without adding more activities (and leave thoughts and comments on the idea). My concern with the number of "add 'x' activity" is that it will start to make it hard to find the activity you want to select... we need a better way of accommodating all kinds of activities.
this also get my vote - would love to be able to record my eliptigo rides distinct from cycling - I'd pay subscription for that!
I absolutely agree. This should definitely be a category in Strava. I've been bothered by this for years. It's an easy fix for Strava. And a necessary one as ElliptiGo's are becoming much more common!
I just finished a stand up bike ride with a buddy who rides the traditional road bike. He’s a stronger cyclist than me but on the stand up bike, I’m a stronger rider than he is. My point is that the two disciplines are quite different. Stand up bikes need their own separate Strava category. Thank you for your consideration!
