    You can download a gpx file of a ride the same milage as the one you need to replace or make up for, and then open it in notepad. Then use the notepad edit menu to find all instances of the date the ride was recorded [xxxx-xx-xx], and replace those with the desired new date. Then upload the edited gpx through the Strava desktop sites manual ride upload menu.

    editing in step by step guide (windows computer)


    1. In your strava profile click on Training > My activities and open the ride you want to duplicate
    2. click on the "actions" box with the wrench icon on the left side and select "export gpx"
    3. rightclick on the gpx file and open it with notepad
    4. find an example of the date the ride was made in the wall of text (ex: 2018-02-01), highlight it and copy it. Don't copy the timestamp part of the string (ex: T12:12:20Z), just the date.
    5. from the menu select Edit>Replace
    6. in the "find what" box paste the date you just copied (ex: 2018-02-01)
    7. in the "replace with" box paste the date again but change the last digit to the new day you want (ex: 2018-02-06)
    8. hit "replace all" and close the prompt
    9. save the file
    10. back to your strava profile, click the orange + icon on the upper right and select "upload activity"
    11. chose "file" from the left, and upload the gpx you edited in notepad

      you should have a new ride that is an exact duplicate of the old ride, but on a different day
      if you didn't find and replace the exact date characters (like messing up the year-month-day format) the uploaded gpx will give you an error


    I've had to do this twice this year to replace commutes that the strava phone app decided to disappear on me.

    Yes. I'm non technical in this regard.

    Or they could just go out and do the ride all over again! HTFU!

    This is the method I've used in the past and it isn't too difficult. I'm definitely non-technical.

    (Note to self - need to replace a manual place holder entry... Cyclopaths need those points!)
