MyFitnessPal Connection to Strava or Another Cycling App

I was under the impression that MyFitnessPal could connect to Strava to obtain cycling data, as long as Strava also is connected to MyFitnessPal. Due to current physical limitations. I am no longer jogging/running and I am riding my bicycle. However, MyFitnessPal is not capturing the data from Strava. It even stopped getting Google Fit data. The only thing that works is Samsung Health, which counts steps. I've tried going to the website for both. Removing connections and then adding them again. No luck. Wondering if others are experiencing this same problem. FYI, I am on Android. More specifically, I have a Samsung Galaxy S10+ and a Galaxy Tab S6 (tried on this and it didn't work either).

I did do multiple searches and could not find this question anywhere. Weird since if you Google you find a ton of people having this problem.

    So I didn't have any issues connecting Strava with MFP via my Moto. It could be due to the newer phones. I also know that Strava has made changes to their app, downgrading features and making them premium. Not sure if this would effect syncing with MFP, but who knows. Try to sync the apps on an actual computer vs your mobile and sync through MFP to Strava, not Strava to MFP. See if that helps. I personally did not like how MFP listed my rides when synced with Strava so I elected to just personally add my rides. You could always go for the MFP sponsored Map-my-Ride. I never tried that app.

    I also have spent hours trying to figure out why my Strava data does not link to My FitnessPal. It is very frustrating. Does anyone have any ideas? I have an I Phone.

    I have Garmin synced to Strava, and I really don't want to have to manually put in exercises here if I don't have to.
    I tried linking MFP to Strava through the MFP app on my phone but I don't see any of my exercises appearing. I ran earlier today before I added the connection to Strava. It would be nice to see some more information from MFP about this.

    I use a Garmin and Sync up to Strava, I don't record my rides on Strava directly. I just added the Garmin App to MyFitnessPal so I am hoping my workouts sync directly from there...

    Same here, did everything both MFP and Strava says to do, everything shows connected, but nothing, not old, not new workouts are showing up in MFP. Very, very frustrating. Made the switch recently from Nike Run Club to Strava since I'm registered for a virtual race via Strava, thought I'd give it a shot. 2 days in to my free trial and I'm definitely not interested in paying for Strava after the trial, that's for sure.

    My activities are pushed from Garmin Connect to MFP. Never had much luck with Strava in the 5 or so years pushing to other apps. It's always breaking and needs to be reconnected. I think over the same time I had to reconnect GC a handful of times. Strava just seems not wanting to share but consume.

    My rides are recorded on Garmin connect which syncs with Strava and MFP, but its the Garmin that sends the data to MFP, not Strava. Works seamlessly :-)
