Introduced in August as a feature for premium members, Strava’s Route Builder is now available to those using free memberships, too.
Route Builder lets you tap into popular local rides, segments and trails and create your own ride based on your desired time, mileage and/or elevation gain. Yep, elevation. Just turn on the Min Elevation switch and it’ll help flatten out the ride for you. As you start mapping out the ride, it’ll give you an estimated ride time as well as showing mileage.
When you’re done, export it to your compatible GPS cycling computer to guide you on the route. Or, just print the map and cue sheet with turn by turn directions. You can also save, star and share routes with others.
