To be young, with bicycle, perhaps money to travel and explore the world. Where would you bike? Well, Strava Labs can give you a good idea. It is highlighting where people bike and walk via heatmaps.

“The Strava dataset is growing by over 2 million activities a week and already contains 250 billion gps data points. Here on Strava Labs we’re showcasing interesting side projects enabled by this data-set,” Strava writes.

The Strava Global Heat Map Blue Bike “includes 77,688,848 rides and 19,660,163 runs representing about 220 billion total data points.” Seriously impressive.
