Where the World Runs
In New York joggers love Central Park and the southern tip of Manhattan. In Chicago the lake shore is very popular and in San Francisco the Golden Gate Park and The Embarcardero seem to be the most popular places for joggers.
The Strava Global Heatmap is a really informative Google Map of where joggers like to run and where cyclists love to ride. The map allows you to view the most popular running and cycling routes by Strava users across the world.
The map reveals some interesting differences between the preferences of joggers and cyclists. In London, for example, lunchtime joggers love running along the paths on both banks of the Thames. Cyclists on the other hand prefer to take the roads that run parallel with the river.
