Building on the global heatmap layer they released last year, Ride with GPS has expanded the feature to include a personal heatmap overlay to keep track of all the places you’ve travelled. Just like the global version, the personal heatmap layer pulls route data from your activities and is private to you. This data is highlighted in purple tones on the map, showing the “heat” generated by these activities so you can see where you’ve ridden. Bolder lines indicate roads and trails you’ve ridden along more frequently.
Unlike the global heatmap, the new personal heatmap is only available to those with a premium subscription, and it’s currently only available as a web feature. Premium members can turn on their personal heatmap as a map layer when viewing a route or ride as well as while planning a route in the Route Planner.
Where to find it
When viewing a ride or route, you can turn the Personal Heatmap overlay on or off by clicking on the Settings menu in the upper right corner of the ride or route page and checking off Personal Heatmap from the drop-down menu. Your heatmap will show up on the map in purple lines. When planning a route, you can turn the Personal Heatmap overlay on or off by clicking on the Heatmaps menu in the upper right corner of the Route Planner screen and checking Personal Heatmap from the drop-down menu.
A friendly reminder that all Bikepacking Collective members get 20% an annual Ride with GPS Basic or Premium account. Already a member? You can find the full list of discount codes under “Membership Benefits” when you’re logged in to your member account.
