2. Q: Can I do a free trial to see how STRAVA Live Segments work with ROUVY without paying the STRAVA subscription immediately?

A: Yes - you can try out STRAVA Live Segments on ROUVY without any immediate payment - simply get the 60 days of STRAVA Subscription for FREE. Connect STRAVA to your ROUVY ACCOUNT and you will get access to a FREE 60 day STRAVA Subscription

 

3. Q: Will there be Live Segments on all ROUVY routes in the future?

A: We are currently only focusing on AR routes.

 

4. Q: Do STRAVA Live Segments also work for ROUVY Running?

A: At the moment, STRAVA Live Segments are only available for cycling.

 

5. Q: I found that my or someone else's activity is not valid and being taken into account for the virtual segment and STRAVA Live Segments on ROUVY, how to proceed?

A: STRAVA allows the community to flag activity that doesn't seem right to them. That should definitely be the first step you take: The Activity Flag: Remove an Activity´s segments results from the Leaderboard. Do you need to explain what are Leaderboard Guidelines? No problem, check this site: Segment Leaderboard Guidelines.

The second option is to report cheating directly to STRAVA: How to Report Cheating on Strava.

 

6. Q: I cannot see my PR, I do see KOM/QOM and have everything set up correctly - what is the issue?

A: If you do not see your PR on the route, it is because you are riding on the route for the first time with a Strava account connected. After you complete a ride on the route and the activity is sent to Strava, you will be able to see the PR avatar on the route. 

If you still miss your PR avatar, make sure the GENDER is set up correctly both on ROUVY & Strava. 

 

7. Q: I cannot see KOM/QOM, I do see my PR and have everything connected correctly - what is the issue?

A: If you do not see the KOM/QOM on the route, but you see PR, please, check your GENDER SETTINGS - both GENDER SETTINGS, on ROUVY and STRAVA, need to be set up in the same way.

 

8. Q: Can I turn on/off STRAVA Live Segments in a user's settings?

A: You can hide the Strava Live Segments feature in the SETTINGS menu before or during a ride.
