Pointless Strava Segments...
I was thinking about this after a ride in the forest...and wondering if it is endemic in Strava.
The sort of examples:
Red run from the tree but with the left bend.
Between the two trees.
Between the other two trees.
Slightly uphill bit too fast for Dave.
Red run 1st Downhill.
Red run 1st Downhill slightly longer.
Red run 1st DH start from red run start.
What is the point of these stupid overlapping segments? totally clutters everything up in my eyes.
Endeth my rant.

There are segs on some local routes to me that I ride on a regular basis which often register as something different - I think it's down to the GPS performance or data. For instance, there's a couple on the same road- one is 'full' and the other 'short'. It is impossible to do the former without also doing the latter yet Strava often only shows one of them.
Also, there's at least two that were set up by a mate which didn't show up as anything on his ride page but after he created them it showed at least one other on each segment he created. :-/Pootleist

Strava's much more helpful for road riding, and recording your own times up relevant segments tbh. I ignore the rest.aka Sean / Sandeep / Sylvian / Seamus....

It's almost as if there need to be segment administrators who can moderate the number of segments in any given area...if it goes on at this rate there will be segments in segments of segmentsą!
I've never known how I can be KOM in on one loop but 3rd in the other for what should be exactly the same route...almost as if like nobby says the GPS takes a bit of a wobbly.

I believe you can choose to hide the segments.....aka Sean / Sandeep / Sylvian / Seamus....
