Why isn't my external calendar updating after I change my TrainerRoad Calendar?

We push out updates to your TrainerRoad Calendar as soon as they are made but unfortunately cannot control when those updates are posted to an external calendar.  

Google Calendar, for example, mentions updates can take up to 12 hours to post, but some users have seen longer in extreme cases.

Can I specify a time for my activities so they don't show as "all-day" events?

We currently support this for TrainerRoad workouts but not other activities. In order to have your workouts show up at a specific time, set your workout time within the TrainerRoad app.


How do I remove my TrainerRoad Calendar from an external calendar?

Removing your Calendar as a feed cannot be done from your TrainerRoad account.  You will need to unsubscribe from TrainerRoad in your external calendar settings.  

How will I know if I can sync with an external calendar not listed above?  

When looking for support, you will need to find out if your calendar allows subscriptions via a URL.  The specific format TrainerRoad Calendars are sent in is .ics.  

Can I push my TrainerRoad Calendar to TrainingPeaks?  

Unfortunately planned activities cannot be pushed to TrainingPeaks.  However, you can push completed TrainerRoad rides to TrainingPeaks using Activity Sync.  More information about setting up Activity Sync with TrainingPeaks can be found here.  

Can I pull my TrainingPeaks calendar into TrainerRoad?  

We can't pull your entire TrainingPeaks calendar into TrainerRoad, but we can import your custom TrainingPeaks workouts. Check out this article to learn more about importing your custom TP workouts into TR.
