Creating Routes on Mobile

With a Strava subscription, you can create new routes from scratch on the Strava mobile app. Tap on the Maps tab and select Create Route on the right side of your screen. Scroll on your screen to search for the location where you would like to create your route.

Create your Route

Sketch a Path:

1. Tap the pencil button to sketch a path. There is no need to be precise, the route you draw will snap to the nearest roads or trails.

2. To lengthen the route, tap the pencil button to continue drawing the path. You can also press and hold the map or tap the plus icon to add waypoints to the end.

Add Custom Waypoints:

1. Tap the plus sign icon to drop the pin at your chosen start point or press and hold the point on the map where you would like your route to start.

2. Continue using the plus sign icon or pressing and holding the map to add waypoints. The points will be connected using the nearest roads or trails.

To erase a mistake, tap the undo button to remove your most recent edit. Once you’re happy with the route tap Done. Change the name, privacy setting, and whether you’d like to download the route so you can use it offline. Save the route so it can be found amongst your other saved routes.

Generated Community Routes

With a Strava subscription, you can automatically generate personalized routes from the location of your choosing. Route recommendations are based on public Strava activities and open-source data from OpenStreetMap. We create them by selecting popular waypoints nearby that match your search criteria, and then we generate a looped course around those waypoints using alignment data to optimize the route. Learn more about Generated Community routes or about creating a route on the Strava website.
