I propose the creation of Club Heatmaps. These would aggregate the routes taken by members of a specific Strava club, offering a unique overlay that highlights where club members most frequently run or cycle. This addition could significantly enhance the value of Strava clubs by enabling members to discover popular routes among their peers, especially useful in unfamiliar locations.

 

Imagine traveling to a new city where you’ve never run before. While the global heatmap provides a general guide, a Club Heatmap could offer insights into preferred routes by those you share interests or affiliations with, adding a layer of personal connection and trust to the exploration. This feature would be particularly valuable for real-life running or cycling clubs that use Strava as a digital extension of their community.

 

Key points of this suggestion include:

- Anonymity and Privacy: Individual activities would contribute to the heatmap without revealing specific details about the members, maintaining privacy.

- Club Engagement: Encouraging active participation within clubs and offering more reasons to join and engage with club activities.

- Enhanced Discovery: Assisting in route planning and exploration with insights from trusted club members, especially in new or unfamiliar locations.

YES!! I've been wanting this ever since the heatmaps came out. It would be super super cool to see a map of everyone's rides and to see how much our club has covered. I want to create a large poster to put on our wall to show our coverage.
