Strava Mobile Route Planner

A while ago Strava touted means to generate routes for you. You pick a type of route, a distance, climbing preference, and it throws some suggestions at you.

This was my understanding - but I had neither felt the need, nor indeed the trust to test it.

This last weekend I thought I would give it a go.

  • 60 miles
  • Paved roads

  • As much climbing as you like

Despite taking us into conflict with big traffic and busy town centres with roundabouts it was great to see some new places, routes, and some rather cheeky gradients.

However - I think their definition of paved, and my definition of paved may need some aligning - as 17% is hard enough without it needing boots and a machete!

I think they need to work on their algorythms.
