Strava Heat Maps – how is yours?

It started off with raceshape that did a heatmap of your rides or runs and linked into your strava details …. but now raceshape doesn’t work and instead it has either been bought in-house or they have replicated it ….

quite nice seeing your heatmap with higher occurrences burning brighter but a faint line for routes run just the once ….

Here is my heatmap for running all time (since joining strava 2012)

See the interesting blobs at the 5 a side pitch. (shame you cant filter those out but that is an issue when strava doesnt let you add sports (5 a side, sailing, and kitesurfing would do me)

i am also a creature of habit running down the river and around the park ….

Now they could do a lot with this showing the most popular routes as well as the hottest segments – you could then plan your run or ride for a bit of a trophy hunt …




Here is how you do it better ….
