This feature would bring elevation data to your training calendar and would show the same yearly and monthly breakdown.

Add me to this list as well! Elevation climbed stats are as important as the kilometre!

Add me to the list of people who want this feature. Making it a premium add on would even be okay by me since I am a premium member,

Please implement this feature.  I really would like to see monthly totals for elevation and mileage on the training calendar

Hello, and happy new year - There is a new related forum for feedback around yearly metrics and reporting. Please check it out and add your comments! 

The leading feedback trends so far are to separate yearly metrics in the Training Calendar by activity type (running and cycling), and to add yearly elevation totals.

Add me to this list as well! Elevation climbed stats are as important to many of us as the mileage!

You don't have to be a climbing specialists to want this feature added into Strava.  I along many cyclists would love this feature!

+1. This original request was made in 2012. It doesn't look promising.

Another vote for this option and also to be able to enter manually the elevation figure like distance and duration ; strava lost my signal while i was having an 80 kms activity : i managed to reconstitute my activity as a route but it was useless as you cannot upgrade a route as activity ( according to strava help desk) neither to enter elevation manually ( according to strava help desk) so all the stats for the month and year are spoilt ... or may be some of you know a trick to add the figure ...

Another vote for this option along side of the current ability to measure weekly progress in hrs of training or distance ridden. Elevation gained per week is just as important to most cyclists.

+1 please.


The data is already available on the Training Log view, so should be simple to add to the Training Calendar? The benefit is that I can see an entire year in a single screen.

I'm happy to test.

Another vote for elevation in Training Calendar tab,

I tried to look back on my 2013 totals after the end of the year and I had to add up the monthly totals to get elevation :(

I'd love to see "elevation" as an option alongside "distance" and "time" where the "Weekly Progress/Goals" option is. I think that's just a Premium feature, but I know it'd be nice to be able to bounce back and forth weekly between distance and climbing goals as opposed to just tweaking how far or long you aim to ride week after week.

Yes please! I have a low mileage goal because I do tons of mountain bike climbing and I don't like my friends frowning at my mileage when it's the elevation gain that is worth more than the mileage.

Add another voice for 'Total Ascent'.   Your competitor, RideWithGPS, has had this feature for some time now...

Today I entered Strava Customer Support to ask for this feature, then I noticed it was already requested.

Simply, it would be useful. Espen up here is right: you have to consider that many of us choose the climbed meters data as personal goal.

Thanks for your attention and good work.

Yes, please. Many set climbed meters as a personal goal.

While it would be cool to have the totals, you should be careful about relying on raw GPS or Strava's revised elevation estimates for elevation as they almost always exaggerate the total. An obvious example of this is the way that Strava looks up elevation data: if you go over a bridge, it uses the elevation values for the ground below, so it essentially logs that you went down a hill and then back up, when in reality you were simply continuing straight across the bridge. Something with a quality barometer like the Garmin 500 will return accurate info.

This would be great - I'd love to see how much climbing I've done per month and year in total.
