This weekend I rode the Akuna Bay Loop but when I got home my Garmin 810 said something like "Congratulations! Your training is complete" but then it just turned off. I turned it back on with a feeling of dread and the ride was gone!

Fortunately, for me I could recover the .fit file and upload to Strava:

  • Connect Garmin to computer via USB
  • Open Finder or whatever file manager you use
  • Navigate to the GARMIN device
  • Navigate to Activities
  • (Hopefully) Find your .fit file that never got uploaded to Garmin Connect
  • Copy .fit file to somewhere safe
  • Upload to Strava
