I just read Garmin got hit with ransomware. They have been down since yesterday. I hope this gets resolved.

Sunday am and no resolution in sight..It's mildly annoying to have my upload fix derailed but I'm finding it much more concerning that a ransomeware attack can bring a company like Garmin to its knees. This is basically an engineering company that I would have guessed would have been above an attack that's so effective. I know nothing about ransomware beyond what I'm reading in re. Garmin but it sounds like there's an especially notorious character who's being fingered for this shutdown...

If you use Training Peaks (and maybe some other software as well) you can bypass Garmin by downloading the activity file onto your computer desktop via a USB connection, then uploading it to TP. Not sure what file formats other platforms will accept but TP accepts the .fit activity files from my bike Garmin as uploads and will do all the stats for me.

Strava and Zwift uploads work as well without having to upload .fit files. I have been uploading .fit files to get my data into BT.
