It would be great to have an option to follow a user. Not sure if this exists or not, haven’t seen a way to do it. For now, to look up rides from someone I know is local, I have to type in their username manually in the address bar. I can’t search by city/area because any kind of name can be given to saved routes so we likely will miss out on routes starting in our area but named for a destination that is much further out. But searching for routes by users we know are local means we’re starting out from the same area and will be able to follow along their interesting back road routes to that destination and back again.
Thanks a lot for your feedback - I’ve been thinking about that feature myself actually for much the same reason.
Adding it to the TODO list.
