    Strava question about indoor cycling rides

    If I record a ride on an indoor trainer (just a basic fluid trainer, not a smart trainer) and upload to strava, is there a way to see lap information?

    I was doing intervals and would like to see the lap details so I can compare to future rides but it just shows up like this. Obviously the distance/speed will be zero, but shouldn't it show power/HR?

    Do you have a speed or cadence sensor on your bike? If no, then I have trouble understanding how it could record anything other then time.

    No speed or cadence but I have an HRM and power meter.

    You will need some kind of wheel sensor.

    I assume you are pushing the lap button on whatever you are recording with? And what are you using to record.
    As others have said you will need a speed snesor that connects to whatever you are recording with, then uploading to strava. (just like the HR and Power). With the speed sensor it records the revolutions x diameter to figure out speed and distance, otherwise whatever you are recodring with thinks you are standing still and that's what it records, Zero speed, zero dist.

    It doesn’t think that, it is accurately measuring speed and distance in a situation where you are going nowhere.
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    I finally heard back from Strava support and they said I need to turn GPS off on the Garmin (I have a 530). I haven't tried it yet but wanted to update this in case someone else searched.

    I created a new activity profile "Trainer" with GPS turned off.
