Upload a file on your computer

You can upload files directly to Strava via our file uploader found here:
http://www.strava.com/upload/select

You can upload the following file types as long as the file is 25MB or smaller:

  • GPX
  • TCX
  • FIT
You might want to use the file uploader if you have rides on your computer that are no longer on your Garmin or you have rides on Garmin Connect or another site that you would like to export and upload to Strava.
 
If you have an Edge 500 or 705, you'll find that the device mounts to your computer like a hard drive. All you'll have to do to get your rides uploaded to Strava is:
  1. Hit Browse
  2. Navigate to /Garmin/garmin/activities
  3. Select the file - (the end in .fit or .tcx)
  4. Press "Open"
 

Upload Multiple Files via Email

An upload via email option is available for uploading multiple files or files larger than 25MB.  It may take some time to process, but the activities will appear under Training > My Activity once they have been uploaded and processed. You can send a message to upload@strava.com with files attached (GPX, TCX, FIT)
 

Add an activity manually

If you want to record an activity on Strava without a GPS device, you can create a manual upload. Simply input all the information manually, like distance, time, activity type, etc. 

 

Instantly sync from the Strava iPhone or Android app

Download Strava for iPhone or Android.
