Some MTB routes are preferable to ride in a certain direction. It's impossible to ride upwards an MTB downhill section. Also it's not a great fun to lose elevation on a road mostly ridden uwards to actually gain it. It would be great to determine the preferred direction on a heatmap by color. For instance let it be blue for uphills, red for downhills, grey for 50/50.

yes, I've also often battled to work out the direction of a ride when following a route I'm interested in ... mainly when a start & finish is same location.


Ok, let me be even more precise with what I'm looking for. Here's the example of a heatmap of my local woods. Those downhill sections are simply dangerous to ride upwards as you can get hit by someone riding down full speed. But heatmap looks the same for all the trails. Someone seeing these woods for the first time has no clue which trails are supposed to be ridden upwards and which downwards. The colouring should be dynamic, depending on your current position. If you stand in a middle of a one-way road the preferred way would be coloured blue, opposite way - red. If it's a two-way road - both ways just grey.
