Deleting Activities

I haven’t fixed this yet, but I’ve wrapped up the other issues so this is next/current on my list.

OK, I’m pretty sure I’ve solved this issue …however… There are about 10m jobs queued up right now, so any delete requests might take a while to complete. I’m pretty sure I designed those jobs to skip the queue, but I might be wrong. :man_shrugging:


Yay! Thank you so much! That annoying large diagonal line straight through the heart of my city is finally gone! I really appreciate it! :grin:

Hi James,

I appreciate you’re busy, but would it be possible to delete this activity? CityStrides I have deleted from Strava but it is still appearing in my lifemap.



OK - deleting that now … it could take a few minutes.

HI, same issue as the OP. I didn’t stop my watch when back in the car! I’ve since cropped the strava activity but I guess I need the citystrides activity needs to be deleted? Then when I next re-sync an activity it’d be OK?



There’s one catch in that deleting the activity doesn’t delete those completed/progressed streets - if you want me to remove those for you, you’ll need to let me know before you delete the activity in CityStrides (otherwise I can’t find them). :smile:

Otherwise yeah, deleting the activity then re-syncing the account will bring in the correct info (there’s a Sync Now feature for Monthly supporters, or you can ask me to sync it the next time I’m free to do that for you).

I’ll more than likely do that route again at some point, so in terms of completed / progressed streets, I’m not too bothered if they remain. It’s more that my map shows a massive long ‘run’ and I only did a relatively short one! Also, I guess because of the distance covered by this route, it now centres my map to this place rather than my true home area.

Not sure I have the ability to delete the activity from my end, so if you could I’d be very grateful.



:+1: I’ve deleted that activity & started a sync for your account … shouldn’t take too long for it to reappear

Hello! I don’t seem to see a ‘delete activity’ option for this activity: CityStrides

I edited the Strava recording, but the original version still seems to appear in citystrides (the last 9km were an accident - I was on a train and forgot to stop my app!).

Any chance of deleting the activity, and resetting the completed streets?

Thank you!

@JamesChevalier can you delete this activity when you have a moment? No hurry. I’ve cropped the activity in Strava so I’m hoping that after you delete it, Citystrides will resync at some point with the correct data. Perhaps that will happen automatically on a resync? Thank you.

You can delete the activity by clicking on your profile pic top right.

@hjkiddk is correct

To have the activity sync back in you’ll have to see Single-Activity Syncing or wait (likely a VERY long time) for me to run a sync for your account.


@hjkiddk and @JamesChevalier
Thank you both!

This was driving me nuts…

It is there, but you have to be on the activity page, i.e. citystridesDOTcom/activities/1234567

On that page you can right click your profile picture, top right, and delete or edit the activity.

I have deleted some activities (with corrupt GPS data) and I get the note that those activities are schedulded for deleting … how long does the deletion take? Do I have to do something else (like staring a sync manually) to start the deletion process?

AFAIK, you don’t have to do anything else.
Maybe by now they are gone?
