Search or Explore feature for Strava Routes

Map-based exploring/searching for Routes in the 'Explore' section, similar to the map-based segment explore that currently exists.

If someone has taken the time to create a route, chances are that route is a better indication for a good ride or run route than popular segments. 

Currently, when I'm in a new location, I use popular segments from the segment explorer to drill down to activities to ry and identify good routes, in combination with popularity in Route Builder and the Strava labs world heat map. It would be nice to not have to create my own route for every location I visit. Local knowledge is the best!

  • This is surely a must have. I am amazed that some pretty basic stuff is missing,must be an easy update to make routes visible to all.

  • Hack solution:  use Google's "site:" search to find Strava Routes others have made public.  You have to know a keyword or two about the area you're going to ride in.  For example:

    site:strava.com/routes gibraltar

    Copy/pasting the above into a Google search bar will find routes in Santa Barbara, CA which probably contain the famous climb, Gibraltar...

    Granted, this is IMPERFECT and frankly inexcusable that Strava hasn't made a more robust Route Search feature in two years.!?!?!?

  • Even the ability to search or filter your own routes would be a great start. I have plotted over a hundred routes and it takes a long time to page through them to find suitable routes when planning a ride.

    Come on Strava. I know you are busy but please please work on this :D

  • Yes please. When I go visit a new town I would love to find a route that someone regularly does. Recently it took me 4 days to find where a local bike shop route went. On my last day I found a hard copy of the route at a local shop.

    So a search of routes by location would be great.

  • I think just about every other mainstream cycing app has this feature. I used to use Endomundo, MapMyRide & RidewithGPS. I believe they all have this feature. I am now using Strava for other reasons, but c'mon; What is Strava waiting for?

  • It's just plain shocking that this isn't being treated seriously. Come on please, make this a reality.

  • Really poor that two years have past and this feature still hasn't been implemented. Agile development driven by user need? Back to MapmyRun

  • I stopped paying for premium this year. I have plenty of social networks that are free, and if all Strava wants to provide is a social network I refuse to pay. I started paying for TrainingPeaks this year, and have used it with coaching. That's a serious product for training and getting faster.

    If Strava could provide routes, mapping tools and MTB specific options, I'd be back as a paying member in a heartbeat. Till then, I'll give kudos and comments.

  • The add features support section of Strava is very tucked away, most people would never find this, or just wouldn't look. I think if Strava polled their users on what needs adding this feature would gain so much support that they would have to listen.

    I very much doubt Strava would run a poll. However I wonder if @Stravawankers on twitter might? If Strava saw the true numbers of people that support adding this feature they then would have to move it near the top of things to develop

  • Just started with Strava this week, found it very strange that this feature is not present. In fact, the reason I downloaded Strava was because I was visiting a different city and was looking for routes. Given the popularity of Strava, I thought it would provide this basic features.

    Disappointed. Will probably delete app.

  • Now Mapmyride and others are getting on top of their game with the training dashboard and KOM Hunting is becoming thing of the past because of electric bikes and "tail winds" I wonder if there will be a shift to Mapmyride just because of this prioritisation (?). .... Probably not..because the prioritisation was commercialisation and getting in bed with the Garmins. Easy fix I guess when prioritised. Just a pity those early supporters have to wait

  • +1 Please add a route search like your segment search. This has been asked for and expected for years now I see from this thread! Rightly so as without it the routes feature is seriously limited.

  • This is very poor, Strava you are not listening! Ridewithgps is much superior: finding other people's routes when you visit places, reverse a route to quickly get a new one, insert new waypoints to allow mods to routes etc. Also in Strava I can't see the road under the line of the route to check that it isn't  a track (I use a road bike). Importing a gpx fails, and converting ride to route gives an uneditable route. Ridewithgps does these well. After so long without improvements I suggest we all abandon Route Builder for ridewithgps and cancel Premium membership.

  • This is ridiculous not being able to find routes created by friends and are not "private".  It is such a basic but primary feature for most all types of applications... but not Strava?!  Nuts.

    Testing my patience with the "Premium Trial", but perhaps not seeing the value in paying $8/mo for something so inconsequential.

  • There are tons of riders and I'm sure tons of routes where I live. For an app that brings a social aspect to training and riding, how is it possible that the ability to search, share and download routes with fellow riders is still missing?

    I love using Strava, but I have a tough time finding new routes in my own city, let alone if I were to travel to another.

     

    Get on this!

  • I originally posted about this around 3 years ago. Since then Strava has proven incapable of responding to a relatively simple service request supported by many of their clients. The lack of this service on Strava makes this product inferior.

    I work for a cycling touring company that usually has a few thousand guests each year all Over the world .

    For the past few years we have used Strava in hows they would correct this inferiority issue with an update but unfortunately they have completely dropped the ball.

    We won't be waiting any longer for strava to get their act together, there are too many companies providing superior services to waste any time.

    I just want whoever at Strava yo know that due to their inaction over these past years, we will no longer be introducing your product to our clients.

    Good luck with your business but we won't be participating in this failed business model.

  • We at Strava are very interested in building ways to explore routes created by our community. This fall and winter we will explore the search & explore concept and I'll be sure to keep everyone updated when development gets planned.

  • Yes as I mentioned earlier I am 100% sure I have done this before when looking for a route when going on holiday etc so has it been deactivated?

  • Really, really, really frustrating I can't search for Routes created by others.  I want to find ROUTES, not SEGMENTS.  I'm thinking of leaving Strava if this isn't provided soon.  I often travel and one of the first things I do is look for a new running  route.  Today, I have to spend all kinds of time manually preparing my own routes by trying to piece together pieces of segments.  That is really frustrating and time consuming. 

    I want to spend more time running my routes and less time building my routes.  

    Please provide a date when Strava will release this basic feature.

  • Looking to see where Strava is at on searching for Public Poutes. Looks like this has been an issues for the past 5 years with no update since 2018. We as community all would like to know what the plans are.

  • so many years have passed and there still no progress, it is a shame.
    I do believe that many people would pay for a premium especially to get this feature.
