Buddhist calendar (B.E) is 543 year before Gregorian calendar.

For example: Year 2012 is B.E. 2555.

For iPhone that set local to Thailand or any country that using Buddhist year when uploading to Strava the date will be 543 years in the future.


This create a lot of problem because these rides will be listed first in the followers dashboard. I unfollow many user because of this problem.


See this person ride for example.

I'm not sure this problem is fixed a the moment but if it was the case please fix rides upload from the earlier version.

Hi E. - We are aware of this problem with the Buddhist Calendar and our App. Thanks for contacting us! Also, I've checked the club, and it looks like we may have fixed the problem with the dates as the Club Feed looks accurate to me.
