I think that this is pretty cool...
Heat map showing where we (collectively) rode on Saturday 20th July across the entire day..
5-6am is a popular time to start
River Loop, Coot-Tha, Nebo, Wynnum Rd, Bike path to Nudgee and Redcliffe all feature heavily.
Coot-Tha is high-lighted nearly all day and we are all off the road by 9pm....
Fascinating. In Perth it looks like people head up Crystal Brook Rd between 8 and 9 and then come back down Welshpool Road between 9 and 10. Armed with this knowledge I'll be able to limit future embarrassment by doing CBR prior to 8 or after 9! (I usually have a little stop or a bit of a walk on the way up )
I remember that day. I was the coldest I've ever been in my life being not quite suitably dressed and Sky High was 0.4°C around 3 or 4pm. No wonder the Dandenongs look pretty quiet. It would be interesting to compare snapshots every 3 months. The UK looks.. busy
Go to Europe and the UK. Start at Midnight to 1 am and follow the blue lightning from from outside London and arriving on the coast about half way between Felixstowe and Lowestoft around between 4 am and 7am. Looks like it would have left London around 9pm or 10pm. Wonder what ride that was?
Also check out Western Europe and the UK. England is totally insane compared to the rest of Europe. They start riding much earlier, with only Belgium and Holland coming close, but they don't start riding to mid morning. As for France, funnily enough most of the action is around Semnoz where the TDF was that day, or riding the lap of Alpe-d'Huez circuit or up to Col du Lauteret and on up to Col du Galibier.
And I'm assuming there was a race in Northern Victoria that day starting and finishing in the town of Beechworth.
Why no riding in Daisy Hill. Road riders only?
Re the ride from London out to the coast...I read on the comments on Strava that it was an overnight ride ?an annual event that was on...the UK looks amazing, apart from the northern part of Scotland the place has cyclists riding everywhere!
Yes it's there summer and I think they were experiencing a 'heatwave' (Their terms for one)
Also the Netherlands and Belgium were thick with riders!
I noticed France too...almost nothing apart from the Alpes
No anyone who logged a ride using Strava to upload.
The night before there had been a ton of rain, so maybe thats why. The trails out at Nebo had some action from what I can remember from the heat map.
Racing at Muzz at been cancelled that morning hence next to no rides compared to Nundah which had racing on that day.
I can trace my ride from that day...
Ha! I recognise the first Strave of the morning in Ballarat... it was me!
Wet miserable bugger of a day that one was. Our Saturday bunch often exceeds 30 in summer. That day there were 4 of us. The others were more sensible.
Scroll the time bar along until later in the day and you'll see the MTB trails show up....only us roadies appear to get out early
Strava just isn't that popular in France... it took off a bit last year, but hasn't carried on... I think if your French you have to know someone who talks you into it, probably won't sign up to an english language only site.
I love the personal heat maps!.
How do you get to the personal heat maps from that page?
I just typed in 'Strava Personal Heat Map' into g**gle and x.raceshape.com came up, logged into my Strava account and it took a couple of minutes to generate a map.
You mean this link? http://x.raceshape.com/heatmap/
Thanks, too lazy to cut and paste in a link...
Cheers, that worked very nicely
