When I'm planning a route on roads I'm not familiar with I need to check various junctions / roads on street view.

At the moment this means I build the route in strava, then have to cross-reference with Google Maps (or whatever your favourite street level photo source is). This is crucial for ensuring it's going to be a fun ride as roads vary dramatically in busyness where I live, and aren't necessarily indicated by size of road. Unfortunately this process is pretty tedious/tricky.

I'd love to be able to drop a few points down on the map and see what the road/junction looks like.

Thanks for submitting your idea. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.
We currently have 3D maps available for routes and although this doesn't match the level of detail that street view does on Google Maps, it could offer a general sense of what the streets are like when paired with the Satellite map overlay.

Second this recommendation. I often have to use alternative route planning options to check surfaces, junctions etc. Would be great if I could do it all within strava routes instead!

Was going to suggest this and saw that the idea was already submitted.

I want to explore a new trail tomorrow morning and it would be great if Street View extended to mountains and trails. The community can submit photos and videos of the different routes.

Somewhat related -- in February we launched Photos on Routes, which may provide some visual insight into current route/trail conditions -- you can read more about the update here.

Photos are a great addition but due to the low volume it isn’t super helpful for new routes. Integrating with Google StreetView (even as a side-bar when you click a location it shows you the view) allows you to check surfaces and road sizes which is critical when planning a new route.

Hello,

Pictures, 3D and satellite view are good but not enough and are not available everywhere, google street view it's a very great "plus" to have
