Segment Word CloudSo what type of segments do you tend to ride? OK, this isn’t really going to tell you that perfectly but it might give you some indication. As you can see the segments around here in Sheffield tend to be either climbs or descents, but that’s why I live here! Check out your own Strava segment word cloud on your new Word Cloud page. Update: Now has Ride option too!


It seems that those of you that ride more in the big cities can get a more interesting cloud. Here is one for a rider in New York:

Segment Word Cloud

Each time you go to your Word Cloud page then a new cloud will be generated.

Clicking on any of the words takes you to either your segment or ride list page (depending on which word cloud you are viewing) and filters the list by the selected word.

If you want to make an image of your word cloud then you’ll have to perform a screen capture (Fn+PrntScrn on a PC) and crop and save the image in a image editing application of your choice.

Update: Made a fix to allow the word clouds to display accented characters. Tested with Norwegian but let me know if it isn’t working with any other languages.

    Hey Ben,

    In the “Word Cloud”, it looks like apostrophes get
    converted to the string “39” which is the apostrophe’s ascii value in
    decimal. I haven’t noticed if any other characters get “special” treatment like this but i imagine it’s likely

      That one should be sorted. It was a special case in terms of being converted to ascii but I’ve also done some tweaking to the code to properly handle foreign characters as well. Clicking on words with apostrophes also works now to. Thanks for letting me know.

    How about having a Word Cloud that is generated by your own ride titles? Possibly a radio button/check box that user could choose between Segment Name or Ride Title/Name?

    I’m just spit-ballin’.

    Climb is always going to be big as the autogenerated segments all are “(name) (type of street) climb” Sprint was big in mine too 😉
