Strava’s Online Route Builder Offers Community Photos for Adventure Planning

SAN FRANCISCO, August 24, 2023 – Strava, the subscription platform at the center of connected fitness, today announced the addition of millions of recent community photos from around the world to its online Route Builder. The update allows Strava subscribers access to community curated photos depicting recent conditions and vistas to confidently plan their next outdoor adventure.

This significant update leverages AI tools to sort through millions of photos publicly shared on Strava every day to showcase recent photos that are most useful in activity planning. With a focus on recency, featured photos will be updated every 48 hours and photos older than 12 months will be excluded. The resulting millions of recent photos are easily accessed from the map view, helping subscribers build an ideal route and understand the conditions they’ll likely encounter.

The addition of photos to Strava’s online Route Builder follows another advancement earlier this year, which brought the ability for subscribers to add and edit Waypoints while building a route. 

Subscribers can access Strava’s Routes tools on the web at and get recommended routes in the mobile app’s Maps tab.
