How to find ROUTES in my area?

I have several personal ROUTES saved in Strava & there is an option to make them private or public (I leave them public)

So I would like to know how I can find/browse routes created by others in my area?

  • I've found out a couple of different ways to find routes that people use

    1-Do a ride around the area you are looking to explore, upload your activity to Strava and then look for any matching segments. On those segments, look at the leaderboard (the fastest riders for that particular segment) and then look at the rides / activities those leaders took.. chances are, every rider took a completely different ride that included that particular segment.

    2-Follow actvie strava  riders around your area, and you will get to see their activities ./ routes, as they do them.

    Once you follow them, you should be able to see their past rides / activies and routes.

    I have found a ton of rides and routes i would have never thought of, just by doing these two things.

  • oh yeah, this is a really good idea - thank you!
    I took a look & started to see a few ideas, I will keep searching.

    Its a shame Strava is such an amazing concept, but so poorly supported (almost no innovation or improvement these days). I hope someone can buy them out & do something with it. But your idea is great to work around the lack of features.

  • You're welcome, I agree with your on Strava.. it is almost like abandoned-ware...support is pitiful..

    I been searching for some matching segments that were close to mine, but couldn't find them using the search feature.. i know they are in there.. they just can't be found, LOL.. 

    people have been requesting some basic functionality, like elevation gain on segments.. and nothing.. <crickets>

    what a shame.. there is no way in am going to pay for something that has such poor service support.. oh well

  • yes i have to agree.  how simple would it be to look for public routes in my location.  its all there.  just a simple change and yet Strava can't be bothered.  real shame.  i will die out as an app if it doesn't listen to users

  • There used to be a way to do this on Strava and it was really good. All the routes are on here but needs a means to search.
    However, Strava i’m led to believe had to remove the search for privacy and security reasons. Heard soldiers in Afgan were recording and saving routes around their bases with obvious potential security issues.
    Shame but there you go.

    I have found routes since by doing a segment search. If the whole route is saved as a segment it will be there.

  • Check out RWGPS. They have exactly what you are looking for. Unfortunately you are going to get a smaller sample size.

  • Agree with Dan.  Ride with GPS is better for finding an established route.  You can search by distance from your location to start and range of miles that you want to ride, elevation, etc.  Pretty good support on RWGPS, too.

  • I put my location in for Segment search using city and state, yet the first ones I got were in freaking Australia.  Pathetic!!!!!

  • Are you trying to say that Australia was the incorrect country?

  • Just upgraded to paid subscriber after a few years off this. First thing after creating a new route I realised I needed to reverse the route - no feature : (

    ...the next thing I wanted to do to enthuse & motivate me was to check out other user's routes in the area - no feature!!

    I don't see how either of these functions are super nichey?! I can imagine they'd be useful to tons of people.

  • Do it on Garmin Connect instead. I've just found some popular routes there and will save them as a course for myself. Yes it's disappointing it's hard to do on Strava. Is that still the case? I'm looking for popular routes in south Birmingham, UK, (not where I live) and thought it would be a piece of gateau but it is'nt and I'm no technophobe. I hope it's possible. I've just started a free 60 day trial and thought it would unlock all these treasures...

  • I have Garmin Connect app but don't find anything about courses or routes.  Suggestions?

  • I've been using Strava for maybe ten years and always questioned why anyone would pay given there's such an excellent, featuresome free app underneath it all.  Then I got wedged into paying by the recent crippling of the free app and what do I find?  A basic function like route search is missing - maybe I only assumed it'd be part of the paid product, but I know it used to be there.

    Strava has critical mass in its community, that's its main draw.  If the switch to an effective all-paid model ignores that community of now "paying customers" ... well ... ten years ago there was nothing like it but these days there are alternatives, sometimes better, albeit without the user base.

    Route search removed for "security" reasons experienced by one (okay, significant) section of the community?  I despair.

  • I believe Krayola W is referring to connect.garmin.com, not the Garmin app.

  • just signed up to Strava, always used MapMyRun. Always used the routes option on that to find other peoples trails/cycle routes.. Really surprised Strava doesnt have this basic feature.. Other than that its good i think

  • Just ditched Strava for MapMyRide. So much better, generates routes for you in your area and only 6 pound/month. If strava could add such a simple feature like route generations or see what routes fellow riders are doing in your area I would go back to them, but can't see this happening anytime soon. The ability to draw your own route on Strava is cool but not groundbreaking. Not worth the subscription at all.
