The traveling athlete’s solution: a crowdsourced database that helps you find & share great places to be active wherever you travel.
Have you ever been traveling & just wanted to find a good place to run, walk or ride? Or maybe you had a workout to do and would enjoy jumping into a local group’s training session if only you could find one?
We have, and did the usual—Google searches, pieced together routes from other sources, jogged aimlessly around a neighborhood only to turn a corner near the end of the run & see a great trail that was RIGHT THERE—if only we (or the hotel concierge!) had known!
That’s why we created localeikki. We want to help people be active no matter where they are. localeikki is a database of recreation locations that are publicly accessible and locally recommended. Input an address & your activity choice and localeikki will find great places to run, hike, walk, road cycle, or mountain bike that others have shared. Not only will you know where to go, you’ll also know what it looks like & what amenities are available (e.g., bathrooms, drinking water, parking). Want to find a regularly scheduled ride or run? We have that information too!
We focus on the visual & the narrative. Great images & descriptions, provided by the people who use the paths, trails & routes, can help folks make informed decisions as they plan their next adventure–or get in a fun ride or run before that work meeting.
Our content grows each day, so join the localeikki community, contribute & explore!
