An Idea to Encourage Exercise and Wellbeing using GPS Tracking

I just read a story about someone who has cycled every road in London over a period of five years.

He used a combination of GPS and colouring in the A to Z Map of London. On this video you can see where he went.

I have been talking to Strava and Map My Run for years about a feature that would encourage you by showing you streets nearby that you haven’t walked, ran or cycled on, but all I got was “We’ll add it to the feature request list”.

Maybe I’ll have to work out a way to do this myself…..

Think about the health benefits of having people doing more exercise? We’ve done 10,000 steps. Would you try something new?
