You can use the "Name" or "Notes" field to track surface types. Lots of options on tracking surface outside of using a specific sport icon beyond cycling.
You may want to use the "similar workouts" feature.
View the details for any workout.
Go to the "Compare" tab.
Select the "Nearby" option and the other metric you would like to see similar workouts. You'll see similar workouts nearby.
Hill segments must be 3.5 minutes or longer and have a 90 second weighted average grade above 1.5% (uphill) or below 1.5% (downhill). Other segments are tagged as "level"
It isn't clear what the purpose of this would be from a training or fitness perspective, especially lower values below 1 minute.
Maximal average heart rate is generally used for a threshold test.
Maximal average pace is generally performed at a distance, not time. We call this a race. :)
In practice the idea has a major flaw: It requires an assumption that progress is a perfectly linear progression.
It is somewhat a safe assumption for goals that are very long, such as a year total goal, however as goals get shorter the assumption is usually false, and particularly problematic on the most common 1-week goal. This results in showing a precise but false number - a poor feature.
Consider a hypothetical goal to run 70 kilometers in a week, planned as follows: Monday: 10, Tuesday: 10, Saturday 20, Sunday 30. And so, it comes to Friday, and we have only run 20/70 kilometers as planned, and have 50 remaining, exactly ok. But a linear assumption would be 50/70 km, and so, it appears we are actually 30km behind, when we are not.
As a compromise to these competing goals, the software will show this data graphically in a chart, to give a sense of progress, but doesn't provide a falsely precise number.
We've approached Zwift about direct integration to SportTracks through our data API. They declined saying it didn't make business sense although it is only a one or two day effort.

Regarding saving a selected interval, there are certain sections of a road I ride regularly. I’d like to be able to pick that section of road and save it for that ride so that I can compare it across different rides and along time. Also, auto interval creation feature would be helpful to create intervals during group rides or find hard intervals…..I try to use the lap function of my bike computer to mark my pulls but often forget to use it (I’ll start the lab but forget to end the lab). e.g., find all segments that are 5 minutes long with an average wattage of 220watts with an option to delete or save each segment to the ride. Cycling Analytics has this feature and I find it very useful.
Please see notes attached to this issue.
You can sync your entire history to a Dropbox folder, and update the folder when new workouts are added via the 3rd party tool "tapiriik" which uses our open data API.

A communication log that shows all interaction with a particular athlete is a great idea.
Coaches have three ways to talk to athletes.
- Leave a note on their calendar.
- Send them a direct message.
- Comment on a workout.
You can read more details on these methods here:
Use the "Workouts" page to detect duplicates. Sort your workout list by Start Date and scan the list for two rows with the same date + time.
Workouts added via auto-sync will detect and prevent duplicates from being added.
Balance of fatigue over fitness is shown as performance ~= TSB
Need a block that shows +/- change in performance over prior 1 week time in health page.
Probably should replace the "3 month" block with "1 week" instead. Simple solution. Clear and easy. And 3 months change is a bit long for the period of training load.
Physiological model selection adds unnecessary complexity.
Already supported, you should create a normal planned workout, mark all the information for your race (distance, goal pace) and use the race subcategory.
You can flag any planned workout with six colors. Choose a color for each phase, and mark the planned workout - you'll see the planned workout colors in the calendar. Try it out!
This is a good challenge for us.
We’ve added a few new columns to the workout list for powermeter analysis. Click the “Customize” button on the workouts page to add the columns:
- nPower (Normalized Power)
- iFactor (Intensity Factor = NP as a percentage of FTP)
- Power Variability (VI = NP / Avg Power)
- Aerobic Efficiency ([NP | GAP] / Avg HR)
In the workout detail page we’ve added iFactor % to the total block display (at the workout top) for the nPower value. We’ve also added %max HR, as it’s a similar concept.
A few more enhancements related to powermeter analysis will be coming up in the actual workout detail page.
Variability Index = Normalized Power / Average Power.
- There are probably better calculations for true variability we can introduce. Also applicable to runners for pace, vertical oscillation, ground contact time and cadence smoothness. A bit pointless to do an entire workout but definitely useful to add to segment analysis page. VI is optimized per athlete for a single course. So most useful doing the same course over and over (or using Trainer Road to simulate it). If you're out riding different courses - not much use.
Efficiency Factor = Normalized Power / Average Heartrate.
- Another useful analysis for segments. Possibly useful on the analysis page, but conditions of different workouts can show great variation. Comparing same rides/runs only would make sense (same weather, training load fatigue, etc). Difficult to make training choices from this because of variability. Some argue pure power based analysis is enough.
Pw/Hr = Efficiency Factor. Same as above.
Intensity Factor = Normalized Power / FTP. Mathematically the concept is similar to showing average heart rate as a percent of max (with some scaling). Useful and easy to calculate and show as a percentage of Normalized Power. Doesn't give the same detail as zone analysis but a nice high-level number.
This is a great idea, if we can nail down how this could work beyond what is possible just by adding notes. If you have more specific ideas please post them here.
By "report showing how many rides since last maintenance" - do you just envision this is displayed on the gear details page?
By "maintenance log" are you just thinking a list of Date >> Comment?
I wonder about maintenance reminders, example "Tell me when it's been 500 miles since I last ..."
It's not likely we will become a fully-featured GPS location based photo website. There are solutions which already exist that are much better.
Probably the best solution is to allow you to link your existing photo account and show photos for an activity that have the same date+time and are nearby.
I would like to see a map with pins for start points on: dashboard, calendar (year, month, week), analysis chart and records (show pins where fastest 5k is, etc)
