Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Ride Alert is free and does not utilize ads.

Do I need to register?

Nope! All you need to start using Ride Alert is your Strava account. We hate passwords, too 😎

Where are all of my rides?

You can view all of your posted (public, private, and link) and joined rides from the Profile screen via the menu icon.

Why does my profile show my initials instead of my Strava photo?

Your Strava photo is most likely out of sync. See below to update your photo.

I changed some of my Strava profile details. How do I sync the changes back to Ride Alert?

Your Strava profile data is maintained at strava.com. If you make changes to your photo, name, city, or state, go to Profile in Ride Alert and tap the refresh icon on your photo to synchronize.

How do I to copy a ride from an existing one?

From the Ride Details, tap the [...] button in the navbar, then Copy. The new ride is set one week out and ready to edit. If you copied a private ride, your invitation list is copied too.

How do I cancel or delete a ride I created?

From the main ride feed (or your Profile), swipe left on the ride and tap Cancel or Delete Ride. Canceling a ride marks it as canceled and will notify anyone who had previously joined up. Deleting a ride removes it completely.

How do I block a user?

Blocking a user prevents them from accessing the activities you organize or join. From the nav bar menu, go to Settings | Account | Blocked Accounts. Users you add in Blocked Accounts will not be able to:

  • view or search for your upcoming or past organized activities
  • see which activities you have joined
  • add you as a favorite
  • chat on or join public activities you organize, including those that may have been accessed with a shared link
  • receive push notifications triggered by your actions, such as creating, changing, canceling or deleting your activities, joining another user’s activities or chatting on an activity
  • invite you to their private activities (they receive a message indicating you have blocked them).

What kind of personal data does the app collect?

We strive to make Ride Alert noninvasive and hassle free, only storing the information provided to us in your profile after you Connect with Strava. If you choose to enable location services, your device location is stored each time you open or restore the app. See our Privacy Policy for more information.

I get too many push notifications. How can I reduce or disable them?

You can privately mute individual users by accessing the app Settings screen or tapping the Mute button in their Profile. To completely disable all notifications, follow the instructions for your iOS or Android device.
