An improved segment explorer experience for Strava.Visit AthleteDataViz
I like this site for the flexibility it provides regarding the segment explorer function.
You can colour code segments by length, or by elevation, so if you're looking for say, only segments that are over 3 miles long you can easily do that.
This is handy for weeding out all those stupidly short segments of 0.1 miles. (What's the point??)

How to use:
1) Navigate to AthleteDataViz Demo Designer
2) Open the Toolbar
3) Select Viz Type = Segments++
4) Pan and zoom the map to refresh segments that other users have already found
5) Click the button "Get New Segments" from the toolbar to gather up new segments in your current map area.
Style your map using the sliders, search by segment distance and type, click to see details of the segment.
