Reuse your Strava Activity as a Route Forecast

No need to plot a route again! Kind of. Well today’s upgrade reuses your past Strava Activities to generate a route forecast.

If you are like me and you tend to repeat similar routes then this is for you. Simply click on the ‘Use as Route’ button on any Activity in your Strava Activity list and this will show the current forecast for that Activity’s route.

A forecast is the unltimate in pre-ride reconnaissaince. Answer the big cycling questions. Where and for how long are the headwinds? What are the climbs and how long are they in today’s conditions? Where will the rain start, or stop?

For fun, why not filter the Strava Segments along the route for tailwind only and have a cheeky KOM hunt.

Get a forecast.
