You can also use the app to check out other people’s maps.

Fitness AR lets you explore your Strava bike rides and runs in augmented reality. Using Mapbox, a beautiful 3D terrain map is placed in the real world allowing you to walk around and explore your past activities in a way that wasn’t possible before. The featured section has a list of activities you can explore including the terrain of famous cycling routes like Alpe D’Huez and stunning locations like Yosemite Valley. Screenshot and video capture capabilities make it easy for athletes to share 3D maps with friends

The app uses Strava’s API to pull in the data, and Apple’s ARKit to convert it to a 3D AR view.

Fitness AR will be available later today from the App Store, priced at $2.99. The official Strava app remains free of charge.
