Report Road Conditions and Hazards

Just this morning I hit a section of road where there was gravel in one of the corners of a descent. I was able to keep the bike upright, but thought that I should warn other riders of the hazard. I sent the message out to the club email, tweeted, and posted to FB. I thought posting this info in Strava could help warn others doing the same route. We need a section to post info about road hazards, conditions, etc. Maybe something as simple as a red highlight on the post to warn others following. There could be a separate feed that lists all hazards to all of Strava. This feature promotes one of your brand's values, "We've Got Each Other’s Backs".

 

 

Thanks,

Thomas

  • I agree.  We have road work being done now in Connecticut and there are always roads that I come across that are being prepared (milled) for paving.  It would great to have a feature similar to Waze to warn others of road construction/hazards. It would allow all the ability to assist each other and give people the opportunity to reroute their course. Thanks.

  • We have a lot of road construction going on in the Northeast to fix the roads after the Winter.  It would be great to have a feature similar to Waze to report road conditions/hazards so people can alter their courses.  It would allow us all the ability to assist each other like Tom said.

  • I don't know if this is good idea or not. This morning I created two Strava Cycling Segments. One called "Magpie Swoop Sept-Oct South" one called "Magpie Swoop Sept-Oct North", showing where a well know magpie attacks cyclists every year ( including me yesterday). I thought others may notice this and know when to avoid the area. It would be great to have a Hazards area that you could view in your Strava Cycling maps.

  • Local councils might even take notice, like https://www.fixmystreet.com/

  • No one knows the roads better than the cyclists. I would like Strava to take it a step further and submit the road condition feedback in aggregate to the local governments. There is a lot of lip service by politicians regarding cyclists and benefits of commuting. We need an efficient way to help these same politicians know where funds could be appropriated to benefit the greatest number of riders.

  • As an employee of a local government, I would like Strava to be able to do exactly that.

  • Upvote from me! It's a safety issue. I see broken bottles all over the road while cycling and would love to :

    • Inform fellow riders of this hazard
    • Be notified by other riders of these issues
    • Notify Main Road WA (insert your org here) and Councils of the hazards.
    • Allow riders to indicate "all clear" if it has been cleaned up/ resolved.
