How do I get activites into CA?

From Garmin

Link your account to Garmin Connect to have rides automatically imported. Setting this up will also import rides from the last month. Getting older rides from Garmin Connect is harder. Garmin can export all personal data in one file. There are also scripts on GitHub that do this.

From Wahoo

Automatic imports can be set up in the Wahoo Fitness app.

From files

Activity files can be uploaded directly from your computer to CA. Click the “upload” button on the calendar and select one or more activity files. Most popular formats are supported. Many bike computers act as a USB drive when plugged into a computer, allowing files to be directly uploaded from them. If files are in a ZIP file, unzip them first.

From Strava

Link your account and import existing rides. Note that this won’t include data like left/right balance or other advanced data streams that power meters generate. This doesn’t automatically import future rides, but the “import only latest rides from Strava” page makes it easy to import the latest rides.

How can I export data?

There are a lot of options, depending on whether you want summary data or original ride files, and how many you want.

To download the original ride file of one ride, go to the ride page and download it from the drop-down menu next to the date.

To download the original ride file of multiple rides, go to the rides table, select the rides you wish to download, and click the “download” button.

To download the original ride files of all rides, go to profile settings and click “download activity files”.

To export summary data of rides, go to the rides table and click “show CSV”. Tab separated data can be copy-and-pasted directly into Excel.

To download all data, including original ride files, plans, comments, etc., go to profile settings and click “download user data”.

Data can also be exported from the API.

How can I delete rides?

If you want to delete one ride, go to the ride page and select the “delete” option from the drop-down menu next to the date.

If you want to delete multiple rides, go to the rides table and select the rides you wish to delete. Note that it’s possible to select one ride, hold down shift and select another ride to select all rides in-between. It might also be possible to do a clever search to find the rides you wish to delete. For example, ride.format == 'json' will find rides imported from Strava.

How are things calculated?

This blog post should answer these questions.

How do I delete the end of a ride?

You can crop the beginning and end of rides by going to the ride page and selecting “crop” from the drop-down menu next to the date.

Is my data deleted when I unsubscribe?

No, you only lose the ability to add new activities when you unsubscribe. If you wish to delete your account and all your data, you can do that on the profile settings page.
