- iPhone Cycling App – what do you use?
Endomondo – mainly because I like having a record of rides on their website. Keeps me motivated to ride the commute at a decent pace.

CycleStreets is good for finding road/path routes.
MotionX GPS is good for off-road use and navigation.
LiveCycling is good for fitness geeks (BPM, cadence etc)
most folk I know also use Endo, so stick to that.
Yeah that’s the main reason I use it to. Shame because some of the other apps are better in many ways (MapMyTracks for instance offers much better graphs and analysis if that is your thing) but Endo seems popular and I like the way it auto-uploads once you are done.Posted 6 years ago
I was tracking with Endomondo but have now switched to Strava, the segments on Strava will really motivate you to push yourself on the climbs…and the descents :D. The elevation on Endomondo was always wrong with loads of false zero heights meaning ridiculous total height climbed. Strava seems to get the elevation right and is consistent plus it seems to use more regular waypoints which is better for the twisty bits. I still like the Endomondo website though so I export the GPX from Strava and import it into Endomondo.Posted 6 years ago
Just a bit of a hijack………do you need a pc to use strave or can it all be done on android phone like MyTracks? I’m only asking as I will be using work PC which can cause ‘problems’!
Strava saves the ride over air (3G or wifi) to the Strava website so you don’t need to physically connect the phone to a PC for it to work. Most of the ride info is still stored and viewable on the phone though (distance, elevation gain, average speed, max speed, map, segments and achievements)
and the first ride on my new to me FB road bike!
Don’t forget to add your bike in the gear section on the website then 🙂Posted 6 years ago
I use runmeter but just downloaded strava to try.
Does it automatically store your rides for others to see or do you have to specially request that?
Yep, you can see anyone’s rides and follow anyone rather send a friend request so its a bit more public than Endomondo. It’s a good idea to set a 100m radius from your home address to hide any of your routes within it for privacy and security.Posted 6 years ago

Not thought of that – you can publish your bike and components on the site whilst also displaying your home as your ride start point!
Great app for thieves!
Most of my friends use endomondo but unfortunately it is not compatible with garmin and I don’t use a smartphone.Posted 6 years ago
I have found the KOM function does push you harder when you know you are entering a timed run.stabilizersSubscriber
I got myself one of these mainly for the roadbike.Wahoo Bike PackPosted 6 years ago
Got the cadence speed, HR and the extended battery. Its pretty good so far. Its fairly ‘chunky’ in size but good kit.
I tend to use MapmyRide or the Wahoo app. If I am mountain biking I just use the app without any of the other stuff just to show where I have been.doboMember
i’m using strava at the moment, uploads from gps well too.
setting an anonymous radius from your home is a good feature and should be on all aps.
the segments and koms are good too.
cons the website can be slow just like endomondo.. also the editing of data is a bit clunky and anoying.Posted 6 years ago
The worst is that to get all the features you have to pay..
oh and the “who to follow” feature is a bit shite, i really dont want to follow some yank roadie i never heard of, need more options to tailor this.
