Marvel at these global heat maps of popular cycling and running routes. A glimpse into the geography of elevated heart rates and sweaty pits is now available thanks to Strava, maker of GPS-enabled exercise-tracking gizmos.

The maps include 77,688,848 rides and 19,660,163 runs for a blink-inducing total of 220 billion data points.
