Strava: GPS map from fitness tracker devices

I just learned about Strava - it's a map created from GPS tracks that have been uploaded from people's fitness trackers (like Fitbit, etc.). It's curious to take a look at where people go in Baja:

The faintest tracks are the most interesting. Many of these places are off the beaten path, including tracks ending at sites where I happen to know there is rock art and other sensitive stuff.

That was fun to look all around Baja and see where some have gone... like Mission Santa Maria and Rancho Matomi. None have done the Pole Line Road, however!

I think it's more than just fitness trackers, it's any GPS enabled device with a fitness app on it, and it appears to track even if the app isn't open. The eye in the sky is always watching, apparently.
