Like many of you, I discovered CityStrides during the pandemic as a way to stay active and motivated without any real life races to train for. I also switched continents, and thus strode some very interesting and disparate terrain (rural/urban, flat/hilly, paved/unpaved/downright dangerous) in both USA and Portugal. I thought I’d share my maps from where I ran the most, feel free to share yours as well!
100% Brookline, MA, USA
98% Cambridge, MA, USA (Refused to run on the Concord Turnpike, and some roads near MIT are under construction and inaccessible)
100% Benfica, Lisboa, Portugal
100%* Sardoal, Sardoal, Portugal (my OSM project - been updating this rural area like crazy for the past few months)
18% Castro Marim, Algarve, Portugal (I didn’t get a high percentage done in the 2 weeks I was here, but I thought the map was cool with my run out to the jetty on the international border!)
