How often surface type gets an update?

Hi,

From what I've read you are using Mapbox as the company to provide mapping and they are using OSM for surface types. I would like to ask you how often do you update your surface types in Strava Routes? 
I'm asking because I wonder if it's worth editing surfaces in my neighborhood so it's visible for everyone in Strava Routes. 
Sometimes it's quite annyoing when drawing a route, riding it and after that someones says that you could go nicer path somewhere because it is smooth tarmac and on the Routes it was marked as dirt..

Cheers,
Filip

Hey @majeranek,

Thanks for asking about our maps update. 
Unfortunately, I cannot provide a set timeline of when our maps are updated because our intervals vary.
However, we are aware of this type of feedback and strive to make changes in a timely manner while still ensuring fairness, correctness, and completeness of data.
