I did a experiment ....

It can't differentiate to what method of transport you use .

I switched it on to record a route whereby i broke recs etc . Even though i was travelling by train .

Hahahaha

Your time will be removed. Apparently it happens more than you would think.

Lots of threads on here about Strava cheats.

Apparently Audax UK uses software for the DIY submissions that can pick up any abnormalities on the GPX file a rider supplies. So it should work out if you did the route in a car, even at slow speeds for example. Just some chatter I was listening to on a recent ride.

Well done on beating the system. #smallvictories

Even without the speed factor, do you not think the fact that your route follows railway lines rather than roads might be a bit of a clue?

If anyone even cares, that is.

That 'ride' won't be there for long
Indeed. Normally the ride has been flagged within an hour if I leave it running and drive somewhere. Good thing is they allow you to edit the car journey out and reinstate your ride.

Err, how do you think it could differentiate as it is just picking up raw data from your device?
Given that other than motorways there are very few roads which are dead straight for prolonged periods, a train journey is going stand out.

This is why there is a flagging system, if I lose a KOM these days it tends to be someone riding a MTB trail nearby and then driving home with Strava "accidentally" running on their roof.
