As long as you havnt made it private it should appear eventually (can take time) however they tend to give priority to popular segments with a lot of competitors so maybe your segment is too specific? when creating a segment dont just pick where you started/ended, consider what points may be specific to the ride you did and maybe adjust your segment a little.

Around me there are a bunch of segments which end just after the turing on a junction, so if you go the other way your ride wont be included in the segment. If youve created a segment and no-one else has done it (give it a few days for strava to update with other riders details) then maybe it shouldnt be considered a segment?

You were correct my segment did appear after about 4 days also 5 more people had made the same segment.

Thanks for the info to I wondered how segmentation worked on Strava. A fantastic website (I've only just been told about)for GPS tracking.

I've just started Strava as well.

Does anyone want the Follow for Follow?
