Strava Question.

Funny thing happened today. Stopped at cafe I quite often stop at, had me coffee etc, continued my ride.

When I got home looked at my miles etc and it said I had achieved a second best time for me of 6 minutes something on the stretch that included the café stop. (Looking at previous times they are 20/25 minutes which makes sense)

Have Strava now "magicked out" stops on segments?

No, if you look at the plot, it’s probably straight lined a section because it’s shat itself. It does that from time to time. If it’s that important to you, there’s a “problem with your data” thing that you can hit to resolve issues like that.

Here’s an example of it happening on a ride I did last week.

Here’s what it should have looked like.

Auto pause is turned on.
Auto pause is on, always has been. I am not that bothered about segment times it was just curiosity. As has been suggested perhaps Strava was having a moment as even with auto pause it would make the segment 20 odd minutes previously.

Coffee and almond cake was good mind 😀☕🍰

Some makes of phone don't seem to cope too well with Strava.
I don't go in for expensive models and find Moto very good for tracking.
Nokia....useless

Mine is a Moto and don't normally have any problems as you say. I don't normally check the segments only that the silver icon popped up which made me look at it. I certainly hadn't expected any good times on yesterday's ride as to quote Carlton Kirby I was "pedalling squares" for most of the ride, one of those days when you don't feel "on it" and just want to get home.
