When riding while following a route, one has to swap regularly between the map pane (to know where to go) and the info pane (to know speed, distance, time, etc.). The button to do this being quite small, trying to stay safe while cycling in traffic on the road is quite challenging.
Why don't you add the info (mainly current speed) on the same screen, either on the top, or at the bottom like it already exists when paused?
Option 1 (reuse of an already existing feature, but not ideal)
Something like that when not paused, but with speed and not average speed, and in much bigger. When on the road, one wants to get the info in the blink of an eye, to be sure to stay safe.
Option 2 (non existing feature, but ideal imho)
Something like that (just a screenshot done quickly, of course on the example I have in mind, there would be a route followed), simple: one knows where to go and knows its speed, allowing to stay safe on the road, which is paramount for Strava I suppose.
