Anyone else having trouble syncing Garmin to strava today?

    Bit slow, but gets there eventually

    Yep slow, took about half and hour this afternoon and also got message saying Strava was unavailable.

    My ride from this morning still won't transfer. Lots of aggrieved users out there. First world problems.

    Yeah - I'm also have the same issue. I downloaded from my garmin the file and tried to manually upload it to Strava, but it won't let me as it is a duplicate. So the original is in there somewhere but just not showing up on feed yet!

    Same issue here.

    There's a message up saying there's probably server overload issues - too many Ride Londoners.

    It's a bit crappy.

    I can upload the TCX but it doesn't seem to do what Strava does. So shows me as taking 44 minutes up the Bwlch when it was actually about 15. And shows the chaps I waited for at the top for 20-30 minutes as doing it faster than me.

    Cheers, looks like I'll see if my ride syncs overnight.

    Yeah not working for me either. Figured it was Ride London related :D

    Suffered through a hilly hungover 100k, I don't think I set any PBs...

    Yup. Annoyingly, Garmin's website reported "greens" across the board, inducing me to unlink my accounts.
  • thefdthefd Posts: 1,021
    Mine has just gone up :)

    Trying to upload the GPX and it's just getting stuck on processing - definitely a Strava issue rather than Garmin etc.
  • mrb123mrb123 Posts: 3,429
    Yeah, my biggest riding weekend of the year so far is resolutely refusing to sync.
  • Same problem here. At first I thought it was just me, gives me hope that its a problem at Stravas end thats effecting everyone.

    Ive tried every possible way... uploading via my phone, plugging the Garmin into my laptop and syncing, manualy uploading the file, copy and pasting.

    Currently stuck on " 1 activity processing, queued " the save and view icon is greyed out.

    Hopefully it will appear in a few hours.

    Yeah same - so long as the file is up on Garmin and hasn't been corrupted on your Garmin it'll be fine once Strava sorts itself out.

    Same for me.

    Starve reporting that there are issues: https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/art ... -July-31st

    If you use garmin connect then that should upload fine, you can then export a gpx file and manually upload that, thats how I go time to upload this evening.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,220
    I uploaded tcx rather than gpx - gpx doesn't keep your HR or device elevation data.
  • mrb123mrb123 Posts: 3,429
    Garmin Connect app isn't working perfectly either. Rides have uploaded but certain things like weekly leaderboards haven't updated. Must be MAMIL overload everywhere.
  • nbalcombenbalcombe Posts: 87
    Same for me. Manually uploaded the TCX fine though.

    My lunchtime commute took a few hours to show on Garmin, the return journey at 22:00 is yet to show on Strava yet.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    All seems to be back to normal this morning.
  • grenwgrenw Posts: 794
    Of the 2 rides I did yesterday one appeared overnight and one at 8.15 this morning. They went onto Garmin instantly so I assume the problem was Strava
  • bendertherobotbendertherobot Posts: 11,684
    No segment creation yet. My data turned out to be correct. My moving time would have been a substantial PR (up the Bwlch) but turns out I stopped short of the existing finish in a layby to wait for the others. Turned my 15 minutes into 44!

    My ride home that ended at 22:45 showed up on Strava at 02:23 according to the notification on my phone when I got up this morning. A friend is having issues with Garmin Connect even after doing a reinstall but I'm not having any issues with ride data etc.
