How to correct Garmin 500 ride

Postby Mustang » Mon Jun 24, 2013 6:06 pm

Saturday I rode just 15 km, I stopped the timer & turned the Garmin off.
Sunday I rode the Bris to Bay 100km.
In the excitement of the start I forgot to do the reset, the ride now shows the Sat ride, the distance from home to the start & the Sun ride.
When I download the ride to Garmin Connect it only shows the two rides combined (which is OK) but when I upload to Strava I have the travel distance by car as well????
Any suggestions?
I have saved the ride in a TCX file but when I open the file to correct!!! its past this baby boomer!!
Any suggestions? I would dearly like to keep my meters climbed.

Strava let's you crop the start and end of a ride. Not sure if you can upload it again to end up with two copies one cropping off the end, the other cropping off the start.

I've had a similar incident happen to me. I emailed Strava support and they fixed it for me. Try emailing support.

Golden Cheetah

GPL software

It will let you split rides into sperate files, even suggest logical places to split.

Does heaps of other things too

I use the crop ride feature on Strava, found under the actions tag, works well to reflect only the part of your ride you want to upload. Also easy to post/log the previous segment, you just need to upload whole ride again and re-crop. Hope that helps.
