You can still leave a goal after you have joined it. You can leave it from the website or from the mobile app.
If you are the owner/creator of a goal, you will not be able to leave it. You can only delete the goal, but this will delete the goal for all participants.
You will only be able to edit the Goal icon, name, and description. You cannot change the goal type, distance/elevation/time nor the dates. If you made a mistake in creating your goal type then you will simply have to create a new goal.
Deleting a Goal
- Go to the Goal page that you have created.
- Click the DELETE GOAL button and confirm your selection.
- The Goal will be deleted from your list of goals and the list of other riders.
Deleting a Goal does not delete the participating rides.
DELETED GOALS CANNOT BE RECOVERED. They are permanently deleted.
Completing a Goal
MORE ON GOAL COMPLETION COMING SOON.
- I accidentally deleted a goal, can you recover it for me?
- No, at this time we do not provide any means of recovering goals. This is why we prompt you to make sure you mean to delete the goal. You will have to create a new goal and re-invite any participants.
- Is there any limit to the number of goals I can create?
- There is no limit. Create as many goals as you like!
- I have rides that I don’t want to count towards my goal, how do I exclude them?
- Create a piece of Gear with the “Exclude from Stats” option checked.
- I did not record my ride, how can I get it to count towards my goal?
- At this time manually created rides will NOT count towards any goals. All Goal activities must be an actual recorded ride from the Ride with GPS mobile app, 3rd party apps, or Garmin devices.
- How can I flag or remove a participants activity from counting towards a goal?
- Whoever owns the goal will be able to flag and remove specific rides from Goals as a way of self-policing. Feature coming soon.
