Hello,

I’m brand new to Echelon after receiving my bike today - I have search the web high and low to find out how to upload the spin session from echelon or Strava to my Garmin app, and all I seem to be able to find is how to link my activity from Garmin to Strava.
Does anyone know if or how you upload an activity from Strava or Echelon to Garmin?
Many thanks
Sarah

Welcome to the forum @Sezzy. Which Echelon bike did you get?

Still trying to figure this out myself and thinking to go with this solution for now.
Is it an option you would consider?:

"There is no way to sync your cycling to the watch. What I do is just start my garmin cycling activity when I start pedaling. And I later sync the garmin to my Garmin account.

What I think you're looking for is this:

Automatically Sync with Garmin Connect
  • From the Garmin Connect mobile app:
    • If your Garmin device is Bluetooth-enabled, you can download the Garmin Connect mobile app, create a Garmin Connect account, and link to your Strava account by going to Settings > Partner Apps > Strava.
    • Accept the "Upload your activities from Garmin Connect to Strava" permission when authorizing accounts.
      • Disabling this permission will prevent past and future activity sync.
    • Once activities are wirelessly uploaded to Garmin Connect via Bluetooth, they will appear on Strava a few moments later.
    • After your first upload, Garmin will also sync your past 90 days of activity to Strava.
  • Using Garmin Express:
    • To upload using your computer, download and install Garmin Express and follow instructions to add your device.
    • On the Strava website, visit strava.com/upload/device and find the Garmin option to authorize a link to Strava.
    • Once you've established this connection, any new activities uploaded to Garmin Connect™ will automatically sync to Strava. After your first upload, Garmin will also sync your past 90 days of activity to Strava."

Hello,
Thank you for taking the time to answer - I have found that I will have to do a cycle activity on the Garmin Fenix 5s and then edit the activity with the details from the Echelon activity - same as you have suggested 👍🏻
The other advice is great but I think that is to upload to Strava from Garmin rather than Strava to Garmin

It’s an Ex3 max bike - it is certainly going to make this lockdown easier 👍🏻

Welcome to the club @Sezzy! I think what you and Brent have mentioned are the best two options at the moment. I wish it was easier to sync apps. How are you enjoying your Echelon so far?

It’s fab thank you!!
I got on the saddle as soon as I built it & it was the perfect pick me up today that I needed with this lockdown!
60 min power session of 90s & 2000 karaoke to motivate me!!
