The Strava heatmap is back and this time it provides a further 10 terrabytes worth of data from ten million riders show where you’re hitting the dirt.
The map displays all bike activities so we just went to the places we love riding to find out which trails are the most popular. The answers probably won’t surprise you! If there’s one takeaway from this exercise though it’s that you all need to turn off your strava on uplifts! Let’s get into it.
(P.S If you want to check out the heatmap and see where people are riding near you, click here.)
Bike Park Wales
The uplift is the thickest line here and then from the top, Melted Welly and Vicious Valley get the most traffic. There also seem to be loads of people hitting A470 (probably because it can be sessioned by a short fireroad climb). A fair number of people are making it over the short link trail to ride Terry’s Belly too.
Down at the bottom, the blues of Willy Waver and Blue Belle are the most popular with the green practice trail being the least.
The blacks at Bike Park Wales look like the least ridden with 50 Shades, Enter the Dragon and Dai Hard all registering low – probably what you’d expect form a venue pitched at a wider range of riders.
