Strava Local: How to contribute feedback or suggestions
Strava Local combines your favorite segments and destinations with similar activities from our community of millions of athletes and then distills that data to reveal some of the highest-quality running and cycling adventures in the world. The result is a series of city guides designed specifically for athletes, by athletes. Today, Strava Local features the following twelve cities: London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Milan, Barcelona, Sydney, Melbourne, Sao Paulo, New York, Denver/Boulder and the San Francisco/Marin. When you scroll over the city, you can select between running and cycling.
Local routes are first cultivated through data of uploaded activities in the world’s most active cities. Our product team then works with local influencers to ensure that each guide features the city’s best riding and running experiences. In each key city you’ll find a collection of the best running and cycling routes. Routes include the map, distance, elevation and a brief description.
In addition to the best local routes, Local harnesses Strava data to find out where, when and why athletes tend to stop, which we have used to curate a selection of Top Stops for each of the 12 cities. This can vary from epic viewpoints to the local run shop or café where rides kick-off.
