Recent community photos added to Strava’s Route Builder feature

Strava Routes

Strava has added ‘millions of recent community photos from around the world’ to its online Route Builder tool. This latest update gives Strava subscribers access to community curated photos depicting recent conditions and vistas to help plan their next outdoor adventure.

A release from Strava added that… ‘This significant update leverages AI tools to sort through millions of photos publicly shared on Strava every day to showcase recent photos that are most useful in activity planning.

‘With a focus on recency, featured photos will be updated every 48 hours and photos older than 12 months will be excluded. The resulting millions of recent photos are easily accessed from the map view, helping subscribers build an ideal route and understand the conditions they’ll likely encounter.’

The addition of photos to Strava’s online Route Builder follows another advancement earlier this year, which brought the ability for subscribers to add and edit Waypoints while building a route.
