Bristol Exercise Insights from the Strava Global Heatmap?

Strava, a popular GPS run / ride tracking app, have compiled their data into a beautiful Global Heatmap showing the preferred paths of runners and cyclists around the world.

I, of course, have been taking a zoomed in look at Bristol to see what we can learn.

Here are the cycling and running GPS tracks through central Bristol. Single tracks are thin blue lines then as more tracks stack up on a route you get a thicker blue line and then a red thick line for the most common routes.
