For serious cyclists
MapMyRide outperforms dozens of other GPS-based route-planning apps. You can plot custom routes, track new paths as you go, peruse other users’ favorite rides, and shuffle through those you’ve already cycled.
Endomondo provides a little voice of encouragement when, say, you’re struggling to reach the top of a steep hill. The app can use a friend’s voice messages for personalized motivators. Endomondo also lets you set goals and devise training programs.
Strava is hard to beat in its ability to track fitness data. The intuitive app tracks a full suite of metrics, including time, speed, distance, average pace, and power output.
Relive pairs with Strava to create an impressively realistic simulation of the ride you just completed. Relive’s high-res videos look like 3-D satellite maps, and unless you own a GoPro, there’s no better way to capture your cycling memories.
