Strava integrated with Waze

Strava is the most popular app for cycling. Waze is the most popular app for drivers. My suggestion is a creation of a kind of link between both apps. But why? For safety. Once I'm recording my activity on Strava while cycling, it's possible to have my location. If Waze had a kind of connection with Strava to identify to the car driver there is a bike on the road, Waze would tell the driver to slow down or to pay attention and take a meter and a half when overtaking the bike on the road.

It would save lives. It would be good for Waze users and excellent for Strava users.

  • I had the same thought!  I love the Waze app.  I think it would be useful for community reported road hazards as well.  For example, new construction, gravel road, bridge out, nasty dog, etc.

  • I was just about to type up almost exactly what you wrote. It would be a huge help if done correctly, especially for drivers who are unaccustomed to cycling traffic in a new area (i.e. vacation destination, new town, etc...).

  • This would be a really great safety feature. 

    It would probably have to be restricted to roads where the speed limit is above 30mph, to avoid a deluge of warnings that might occur in a busy urban environment. 

    However, those fast, twisty, country roads are the place where this would be most useful.

    it would be easy in integrate it with the beacon function, by including Waze as an option for location sharing.

  • Linking cyclists on the road to Waze users needs to happen.  The with so many connected cyclists (via Strava, or other connected features on the bike that the data exists to create real-time GIS linked info to raise the profile of cyclists on driver's dashboards and improve road safety for everybody.  Has Strava or Waze made any progress on this?
