Sync Ride Data from Wahoo Elemnt Bolt to TR Calendar


#1

Hi there,
I just switched from a Garmin 820 to the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt and now I’m wondering what is the best way to sync my outside riding data with TR.
With the Garmin unit it was super easy I just connected TR with Garmin Connect and that’s it my Data was synced from TR to Garmin Connect and vis versa.
But how can I manage this with the Wahoo Elemnt? To be honest I don’t wan’t to share all my data with strava.

Are there any other possibilities, probably via dropbox?

thanks everybody,
Cheers,
Chris

I’ve done the same, my rides sync over from Strava to TrainerRoad. I’ve not tried it but can’t you still import a Wahoo file into Garmin Connect?
Interested to hear why you’re happy to share data with Garmin and not Strava?

Hi I sync from my bolt to Dropbox and then manually import the ride from Dropbox into TrainerRoad via my career page - works beautifully

Hey guys,
first of all thanks for your answers.

@philrcook first of all I’m not happy to share data with Garmin connect. But Strava is a service without any hardware. So they make their money with people who have bought a membership which is fine for me. In my case I use the free strava account. If they some day decide as a company that they will shut down the free account all my data would be gone and the service is no longer interesting for me.
When it comes to data security none of them are reliable to me. Because strava can simply sell your data or is a good target because they are the biggest player for health data :wink:
Garmin on the other hand has a crappy app and I don’t trust them either.
Hopefully this answers your question :wink:

@Snowflake69 thank you that was exactly what I was looking for but I wasn’t able to find the import button, figured out the button is on the “past ride” section.
Thank you

A nice weekend to all of you and ride safe.
Greetings,
Chris

I really hope they institute syncing these sooner rather than later, but I’m not hopeful given earlier answers. Wahoo is going to rapidly catch up to Garmin in market share, seems a waste not to, but it took years to get an Android app after the usual Apple garbage, so it is what it is at this point.

Cheers Chris, yeah Strava ending free access would be a nightmare, I guess if it comes to that then I’ll need a new solution but for now it works ok for me and thanks to the new TrainerRoad functionality I have no need to pay for the Strava premiums options.

Try RunGap, seems to sync just about any platform and you can choose which ones you want to sync with easily. Hope this helps.

This is the answer if you do not like Strava.
