Strava Heat Maps
Want to know where the hot lines are in your hood, then check Heat Maps. Heat maps pulls data from Strava show you where people are riding in your area and how often.
"Heatmaps of where people ride. This is something I’ve wanted for years. When I go somewhere new I want an easy way to find the good roads. Plain and simple.
To meet this need I created a Heatmap on Race Shape. It uses rides that have been Race Shaped. Entire rides are downloaded during the process and are then used to make the map.
It does not show a uniform representation of where people ride. That’s unfortunate but new rides are added every hour so the map does get more up to date as time goes on. However, tiles are cached both on the server and in your browser so you may need to wait an extra 5-10 minutes for new data to appear.
Anyway, I hope the map taps into your curiosity about local riding and helps you find great routes when you’re on the road."
