Strava users can now compare themselves and their fellow countrymen with others across the globe with the release of the new Strava Insights data.  


The visualisation platform shows the fitness habits of similar communities in twelve major world cities, namely Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Milan, New York, Paris, San Francisco, Sao Paulo and Sydney.

Info includes the most popular routes in each city, cities with the fastest runners and cyclists, cities with the most marathoners and facts like the most active times of day in each city.

Unsurprisingly, Londoners are most active between the hours of 7am-9am and 5pm-7pm. They also log the most rides and runs of all, however lag behind on speed and distance. In bike-mad Amsterdam the average length of a ride uploaded is over 40km, whereas Parisians average a swift 8:56mins per mile as opposed to London’s 9 minute mile average.
