How to make your own strava art poster

Strava art is created using Strava, turning an epic ride into a piece of fun and beautiful piece of art. This process requires a lot of pre-planning to find the best route. We would recommend spending some time before officially starting your Strava art to check whether the intended route is viable. This includes checking for deadends, one way roads or other potential blockers that could disrupt your progress.

Follow our guide to begin your Strava art journey:
  • 1. Plan Your Route

    We would recommend starting with a simple design or something small. Take inspiration from the routes available to you. 
  • 2. Create Your Strava Art

    The next step is to start your journey, try to keep your route as smooth as possible and remember to save your ride!
  • 3. Make A Poster

    Follow our step by step guide below to turn your Strava art into a poster to display in your home or gift to a friend.

How to turn your Strava art ride into a poster

Our Strava art posters are great if you've created a beautiful or fun piece of art and you want to display it in your home. Follow our step by step guide to start the process:
  • 1. Find Your Ride

    Connect to Strava to find the ride you want to turn into a Strava art poster. If you can't find it try saving a GPX file from Strava and using that instead.
  • 2. Edit Your Poster

    Use the map builder to create the Strava art poster you want. You can select the size, colour, add and remove text.
  • 3. Review And Sign-Off

    Once your Starva art poster is finished, you will be able to review it. You will then be required to tick a checkbox to confirm you are happy for the finished result to be printed. We will also get in touch with you if we spot anything during our internal review process.
How does it work?
We also have a helpful video available to help you start your Strava art poster journey:

What files do I need to make a map?

Our map design tool can link to your Strava account and get rides straight from there... or you can upload GPX files to create your map.
You can get GPX files from various devices such as Garmin and Garmin Connect, Komoot, etc. If you need some help get in touch! 

How do I create a map for someone else?

Most cyclists have an account with Strava and this is the best place to get their ride GPX files.

If you don't have direct access to their Strava account then there is a way to find their ride and get the files to create a map.  Read our blog post on that.

What is a GPX file?

A GPX file is simply a text file with geographic information such as waypoints, tracks, and routes saved in it.
Many cyclists record their rides via their phones, or devices like a Garmin or Wahoo. 9 times out of 10 those devices upload the activity to Strava or other websites where cyclists can review how fast, or slow, they are. From these websites we tend to be able to download a 'GPX' file. 

Can I get some help with the map designer?

We have a short video here that shows you the tool.

I also offer a 'done for you' service where I do the work for you.  Downloading the files and making the map to your specification. Find out about that here.

Can I save it for later or send to a friend?

If you copy and paste the URL you can come back to your design later.  If you share the link with a friend, be aware that they can make changes to the map too!

Can I create a print for a multi-day ride?

Yes you can! Just keep adding rides via the Strava interface or upload them all as GPXs. The tool will put them in the order you upload them (so you may need to re-order them if you want the profiles to be correctly arranged.

I can't find my ride on Strava

The Strava website only allows us to see so many rides from their database. If you can't find the ride(s) you are looking for the best thing to do is upload the GPX from the ride. If you need some help getting the file see earlier answers.
