Sports App Cheater

Have you seen this question before?

Suppose you work for a company whose main product is a sports app that tracks and displays running/jogging/cycling data for its users. Some metrics the app tracks are distance, pace, splits, elevation gain, and heart rate.

You’re given the task of formulating a method to identify dishonest or cheating users – maybe users who drive a car while claiming they’re on a bike ride.

What metrics would you analyze and what statistical methods would you use to identify athletic anomalies indicative of a dishonest user?
