Does strava show your weight?

Is the weight I enter on my settings page public? Your weight is not explicitly listed anywhere on Strava. Do keep in mind that we have segment filters that display results by weight range so depending on your activities’ privacy settings, this may be somewhere your name will appear within a class of weights.

Can anyone see my strava?
