Routemaster is a point to point routing engine for athletes. We've trained Routemaster with billions of data points from real activities in order to learn how every path in the world is used by cyclists and runners alike.

Helping You Choose the Best Roads, Trails, and Paths

Not sure how to get from point A to point B? Using anonymized Strava activity data, the Route Builder can put you on the paths traveled most by Strava athletes, helping you create truly memorable routes to experience and share.

Where Riders Ride and Runners Run. Simple.

Our routes are different than everyone else's. For cyclists, we don't just favor bike paths and lanes. For runners, while you could theoretically run almost anywhere, it doesn't mean you should. We'll help keep you on paths runners prefer.

Keep Up While You Travel

Going on vacation doesn't mean you have to miss your normal running or cycling routine. Use Strava Popularity options to help you choose the paths Strava athletes use most, so you can run and ride with confidence — even when visiting new places.

When friends visit from out of town, I've got a standard set of routes I can share with them to get them out having fun instead of puzzling over where to go.
