A gallery of visualisations derived from Strava running data

The plots in this gallery have been generated in R from my Strava running data. I have incorporated the code behind most of these plots into an R package called strava, which I have made available on GitHub (https://github.com/marcusvolz/strava). Instructions for using the package are provided in the README, and Lidia Contreras has also written an instructional blog post using her own Strava data.
