I can't find any place to search for "human generated" routes, that I would have some confidence that somebody created. (I can, on mobile, get some routes suggested - but in many cases, these end up being dangerous, and are not user generated from what I can tell).
I can create a new route, see my saved routes that I have made, but I can't seem to search for routes others have made.
My feature suggestion is: have a searchable set of routes, created by Strava athletes. Have a 'rating system' (5 stars perhaps), where people could rate the route, as well as a counter of how many people have rated it (and perhaps, how many times it has been used). There could also be a comment attached to rating/review, such that people can comment on any issues with the route (crosses a busy street, don't use at a certain time due to rush-hour traffic, etc.). This would give the ability to feel confident in the safety of a route.

100% agreed. When cycling in a new, unfamiliar area I would love to be able to rely on a 4.5⭐ rated route from a local strava user. Whatever I plan manually or automatically in the strava route planner is never going to match the tip from the local cycling club. Honestly, this applies even to my home area...
Would be nice to chat with fellow strava user about routes etc.
Lack of this feature makes me use a competitor of Strava from time to time. That competitor product has user created routes nicely curated and searchable.
