HI Can you tell me the formula Strava uses to calculate weekly averages, I don't think it accurate. It fluctuates widely. Is it based on YTD or everall?
Strava - please help out here. I am also curious.
It must be based on the last few weeks only I think. Miss a few day's riding and your average plummets. Come on Strava, give us a clue!
Yes please could you clear this up, the Avg Distance / Week makes no sense to me
The weekly average is a four week running average based on your last four weeks of activity. So this takes a few weeks to ramp up if you're a new user and a week or two off can have a significant impact on your average.

Something is weird with the calculations. My Avg Distance / Week is 147mi but my largest single week is only 144mi. How can the average mileage be higher than any single week? Also, I have the same problem with time. My average time per week is higher than any single week.
