Oops! - Garmin Edge 500 Start 60+ Miles from End of Ride

I accidentally started my Garmin Edge 500 after returning from a 67+ mile charity ride today, and now my Strava ride reads that I cycled 131 miles!

Is there anyone I can fix this?

Yes, Strava has a feature to crop your ride, for just this problem. Click on the wrench icon on the left side, and you'll get an option to crop off the piece you didn't intend.

Yeah, there are various tools with which to edit and even create rides. In my case, I don't mind too much if I occasionally lose the detailed data so I simply delete the erroneous ride and do a manual entry with the date, time and distance (and any other info I might have) which is good enough for keeping track of rides and totals.
