5 Million Miles of Bike Rides on Google Maps
The Saturday on Strava Heatmap is a visualisation of one day's sporting activity tracked by users of the Strava application.
The map shows 4,890,000 miles of bike rides and runs completed on Saturday July 20th around the world. The map includes options to adjust the data shown by time of day and to view either bike rides or runs.
The time selection control reveals some interesting data. For example in the UK, the Dunwich Dynamo, an annual night time ride from London to Dunwich, stands out when you view the map during night-time hours. In Tucson, AZ you can also see the early riders of the Shoot Out leaving in the early hours of the morning.
