Strava erroneous "commute" and "indoor cycling" tags can't be deleted? [Solved]

TL/DR - they're toggles, you click them on and off but can't change the choices offered

Apologies if this is trivial newbie-ism, but tried Strava for the first time yesterday after finally getting a non-ancient phone.

It seems determined to put "commute" and "indoor cycling" tags on my slow-ish rail-trail cycling adventures way out into the boonies on my unicycle, and doesn't want to let me delete them.

Any idea how I fix that?

That's what I'm doing. But the tags are just fixed, no apparent way to delete the wrong ones or add meaningful ones.

Ok, I think I get it.

What tags appear on the page as considered potentially applicable by the system is fixed and unalterable, but you can select or de-select them by clicking to make them solid or not. IMHO a bad UI design since it's not clear that they are effectively checkboxes. Typically tags are something you can add or delete entirely.

  1. Click on your ride to open it.
  2. Click on the pencil icon on the bottom left to edit your ride.
  3. Click on the Commute and Indoor Cycling tags to toggle them on and off. Dark grey with blue border is on. White with light grey border is off. See screen cap below. They don't always turn back to white when I uncheck them but it does turn off.
  4. Click the Save button.
