Find That Ride is a new website that populates a map with all of your Strava activities and routes, allowing you to browse and click on specific activities that link to their original Strava page. The idea is that this format, which is not offered by Strava, can help you find previous trips.
Strava has its personal heatmap that lets you visualize the ground you’ve covered. The orange heat represents your hottest/most traveled routes while the gray heat is used for your less popular routes. However, these heat lines are separate from your activities, as well as data and photos that you can attach to the completed ride.

Michigan-based cyclist and Find That Ride creator Jeff Plotzke said, “I’ve always wanted a way in Strava to be able to look up previous activity by browsing a map because there are so many times I remember that I took a ride to a certain area, but I can’t remember when I was there.
“Searching Strava unless you know the exact date or title of an activity can be frustrating.”
How can Find That Ride help you? Well, says Plotzke, “I find I use this to plan new routes and refer to old routes to send to others.”
To help you find a ride, you can filter the map by type of activity, month/year, solo/group activity, and even the specific bike you used during the trip. activity.
Find That Ride’s heatmap is red, but when you click on a line, it changes that line and the entire route you’ve completed to blue, and it also gives details of the date and name of the activity as well as a link to the activity on Strava. If you have traveled this selected route multiple times, activities for all routes will be displayed.
First, you will need a premium Strava account, then after linking your profile, you will be able to see this interactive map of all your activities. You can also filter by type of activity, month/year, solo/group activity, and even the specific bike you used during the activity.
As part of connecting your Strava account to Find That Ride, you need to allow Find That Ride to “show data on your public profile”, but you can uncheck “show private activity data”, “show your profile Full Strava” and more, so you can always adjust your privacy preferences.
The free version of Find That Ride provides access to 50 of your latest activities. Find That Ride asks users to “help keep this site ad-free and support the costs of hosting this site with a subscription and having access to all your activities and routes” – it only costs $5.00 $ (~£3.80) per year.
