Britain sure liked/likes its Strava

  1. I posted this in another thread but I thought it might be interesting to other readers.

    In 2013, Strava took a random northern-hemisphere Saturday and created a heat map of all the rides. You can see it here or read the blog post about it.

    By observation, the slider is local time. So if you put the slider at 8am, it shows you all the riders who were out at 8am local time. And that's kind of interesting. The brightest country on the map seems to be Britain. By a mile. I'm sure it is indicative of strava usage and possibly mobile phone ownership and mamil-population, and nothing deeper - but I find it interesting nevertheless.

    What do you get moving it onto late afternoon, UK time?

  6. Oops. I'd wondered what data looked like now, and assumed it was not available. That's obviously more up to date.

    Is the winner Britain, or the lowlands?

    Replaced by cars and motorbikes judging by when I was there in 2012. Barely saw a pushbike!
