The best cycling apps

Have you been inspired by incredible events like the Tour De France and the Prudential Ride London? Then you should check out our pick of the best cycling apps to get the most out of your rides.

VIEWRANGER

ViewRanger is a fantastic app for any sport, but we love it for cycling. It gives you specialist GPS maps that are packed with useful stuff, like public cycle routes. And there are handy features like route, distance and speed recording.

You can use the maps to plan your own route or download tried and tested routes. Or you can just set off on an unplanned ride and record all your route details, including your time so you can try and beat it next time.

STRAVA

Strava is like a social network for cycling. You can follow friends to see what routes they’re riding, join challenges to compete against other cyclists and share photos of where you’ve been. But the best feature is the global leader boards for popular routes. You can see how your time stacks up compared to everyone else who’s been along the same stretch of road.

MAPMYRIDE

MapMyRide is a comprehensive cycle tracker. It’ll record time, distance, pace, speed, elevation, calories burned, and route travelled on an interactive map. And you can easily sync everything your phone records to the MapMyRide website so you can look back on all your workouts easily.

CYCLEMETER

If you want to get serious about cycling without splashing out on a dedicated bike computer, Cyclemeter’s for you. The app can track up to 25 different statistics across your rides, letting you compare different workouts in huge detail to see where you can improve. And it’s still really easy to find your way around and use.
