Strava Sync for Short Turbo Rides What’s the Shortest?

After a workout (which syncs no probs) I like to do a cool down with Taku or a Freeride. If I only do a couple of minutes to get my body temperature, HR and breathing down, it doesn’t sync because I didn’t ride for long enough.

What is the SHORTEST ride I can do so TR syncs with Strava?

Thanks as always.

How about using the Extend Cool-Down feature to stretch the current workout rather than starting another one you don’t plan to complete?

Then use the Workout Intensity adjust to set your desired power target.


I think 10 minutes is the cut off.

The Extend Warmup function can be done multiple times, so you can press the +10 min button as many times as you wish for an extension of 10, 20, 30 min etc.


Good point, and that should be added specifically:

  • Stacking of button presses to go beyond 10 mins
  • Combine presses to get specific extension desired, not just the buttons shown
    • 1 + 5 for 6 mins, etc.

Thanks everyone. Yes I’m pretty familiar with those suggestions but thank you.

I guess I was just trying to get accurate average data for the actual workout rather than diluting it with up to half an hour of recovery.

Selfishly I ALSO want Strava to be able to log the extra work I put in. So it’s good to know I need to do a minimum amount of time on a cool down to sync my work. Petty I know, but there you are. Numbed motivate me.

Thanks once again.

One option to not ‘dilute’ the data from the original workout, if you use the extend cooldown, is to go in afterward and create 2 custom laps. 1 for the workout and 1 for the cooldown. The summary data will still be for the whole combined workout but you can then quickly click on the laps to see what you want to see.


I believe the min on TR is 4 mins… some time ago i created a custom workout to try different power levels and see if the smoothing setting made and changes to actual turbo response …i raised a query to TR as they did not post… was told the 4 mins… could be outdated now though ?
