Bike Lanes removed from Router Builder?!

Why wast his removed? This makes planning a route much much more difficult and annoying. Really disappointed that an app aimed at cycling has removed the feature to see bike lanes.

    Thanks Matthew, 

    We have been slowly moving away from Google Maps, ever since we started hosting activity maps with OSM data powered by Mapbox. Unfortunately, this is just another phase of the transition. I apologize for the loss of this feature for bike lanes. 

    We're looking into the other route builder issues you describe as well.

  • Can you elaborate Matthew? I'm not aware of such a change.

  • Certainly!

    It used to be that if you went to Map View Options, and selected "Standard", there would be an options for "Show Bike Lanes" listed along with HeatMap, Distance Markers, and Units. This option is no longer there.

    In fact, the map that I see when I pick Standard, looks completely different than it used to. No longer Google Maps, I presume? 

    And since I just noticed this... moving your mouse along the elevation graphic, no longer shows the current location in the route, on the map. 

    Thanks Elle!

  • would really want the bike lanes feature to be brought back if possible ... its really a hassle to plan bike routes now. :(

    One more issue that I'd like to bring to your notice .. I'm no longer able to select the start point as the finish point too .. (for eg.. while planning a route from point A to point B and back.. I'm able to get the route till B, but not back to A, the click doesn't seem to do anything at all)

  • Thanks Vikram, I already submitted the bug about finishing the route at the starting point. Most of us are on holiday this week, but we'll take a look as soon as possible. 

    I can't say the same for the bike path feature. We are committed to moving our map service to OSM powered by Mapbox.

  • It would be handy to have the option to exclude commuting data from the planner/global heatmap. Most of the ride data on Strava comes from commuting and the goals of a commuter are not the same as when you are on a weekend/training ride. When I am planning a ride in a new area I want to see where people go for fun, not work.

  • I really miss not having the bike lanes in the maps. It makes my route planning in Phoenix much harder!

  • Not having the bike lanes in the maps forces me to use competing products which are quickly catching up to Strava in terms of functionality and value. Does Strava really want me to turn to their competitors to replace core functionality that they used to provide? Between the loss of this core mapping functionality and the total disappointment which is the new Apple Watch app, I'm really questioning Strava's dedication to the community.

  • I just noticed the same.. A clear degradation of the service Strava (or Google maps as it were) used to provide. Planning routes is now much more difficult. Please bring bike paths back.

  • This is mad, the most popular app for cyclists and it has removed a map with cycle paths on.  

    Thats like the AA publishing an atlas with no roads on it, just where is knows traffic moves about on.
