Strava Subscription Updates

Yesterday (18th May 2020) Strava announced some major changes to their subscription model and what features its user will have if they aren’t subscribed. The main thing being non-subscribers can no longer view any segment leaderboards apart from the overall top 10 (including lists of their own efforts).  There have also been some changes to the Strava API.   Thankfully I/VeloViewer is in the fortunate position that Strava gave me a bunch of warning and hasn’t restricted my API access at all for Strava Subscribers and only the segment rankings/efforts aren’t available for non-subscribers bringing it in line with Strava’s own website/app.  So if you are a Strava Subscriber (more than 70% of VeloViewer PRO users already are before this announcement) then there aren’t any changes at all in VeloViewer for you.  For non-subscribers that are a few but 99% of the site continues to work as normal. Full details of the differences within VeloViewer for Strava Subscribers and non-Subscribers is available here.

  • I’m losing interest in Strava these days. Is there a way to load activities directly from Zwift to Veloviewer? Or maybe a way to manually upload activities? Maybe not? Seems like VeloViewer is really dependent on Strava API?

    Thanks for a great site!

    • Hi Sarah, There are a good number of Strava specific features that VeloViewer relies heavily upon (especially the segments) for both the normal VeloViewer user and the professional teams I work with. I don’t have any intention to pull data in from any other sources at all as it would be a huge amount of work and I’d rather concentrate on supporting and expanding the current functionality with Strava’s data.
