After a big run or ride, you always want to look at the performance data available to you through Strava. Sometimes you might want to share your GPS data with a friend or another device, in order to get a closer look at your activity. To do this, you'll need to learn how to export a GPX file.

1. Log In And Find Your Activity

2. Find Your Activity
Once you've reached your "Activity Feed", just find the workout that you wish to export to GPX. Click on it to open up a dedicated page for that activity.


3. Click The "Actions" Button
On the left-hand side of your screen, you should see a toolbar. On the bottom, next to the "Edit" button (looks like a pencil), you will see an "Actions" button ("...").


4. Download GPX
Click the "Actions" button. Once you do this, a menu with open to the right with several options on it. Find the button that reads "Export GPX" and click it. Your activity's GPX file will automatically begin downloading to your computer. Once it's finished, you're good to go.
