Bicycle application: the 15 essential apps (counter, route, etc.)

In the digital age smartphones punctuate our lives. Among a multitude of apps available, Which bike application to choose ? As in many other areas or sports, bicycle applications exist for Facilitate your practice, you Discover places, YOU drive, YOU motivate or you reward. To meet you are the mass of available applications, we have selected the 15 Best Applications for Bikes. The majority is free, some have paid features and others are fully paid.

GPS applications or bicycle routes

1 – Strava, the number 1 bike application

How to make an article on bicycle applications without mentioning Strava ? Available on Android and iOS, Strava allows to’Save data from its output (course, speed and mileage) thanks to the GPS of his phone.

Although you can use Strava As a bicycle counter on your phone, most cyclists use a separate bicycle GPS counter to save and download their routes, then use the application to synchronize their outings and benefit from social features application.

All outings downloaded on Strava give rise to an automatic classification of your times on the most popular road and path sections – called ” segments »In the jargon of Strava – as well as to a GPS card from where you drove. The segments are created by users and there are around the world.

Velo Strava application

For these segments, there is a “real -time” feature, which informs you when you pass on a segment that you have selected beforehand, your speed, the advance or the delay that you have on your best performance or the time by relation to the leader on the segment (called kOM for King of Mountain)). This functionality works on smartphones but also on the latest counters Garmin Edge and Wahoo.

An essential bike application ?

Which makes Strava essential, and which separates it from its competitors, is its social component. Like Facebook, you can follow your friends and see where and at what intensity they roll, leave comments and congratulate them for their outings (the famous Kudos !), as well as post photos of your own outings. It’s very motivating When you start, and the application can constitute an additional source of motivation to surpass itself and measure up.

You can also find me on this network to follow my training and find sources of inspiration for some of your bike outings: find myself on Strava.

In addition to social functions, there are challenges organized each month, one of the best itinerary designers on the market and other tools related to thetraining (follow -up of the form, power curve and PRR …).

How much does Strava cost ?

Since May 2020, Strava rendered part of its paid features, accessible via a premium subscription to € 7.99 per month Or € 59.99 for the year (just under 5 € per month). This concerns in particular the creation of routes and the viewing of all of the segments rankings.

2 – Google Maps

We continue with a particularly known application, Google Maps. The Californian company knows how to do it in terms of cartography. Google Maps is a great tool for locate easily, find business or a remarkable place but also trace a Cours to follow by bike.

Just as you use your phone on the fly to find places, read a few reviews and go to the one you have chosen, you can use Google Maps To do the same – and get there by borrowing cycle paths and routes adapted to bikes.

Google Maps Velo

Like any bicycle application, it is not infallible, but in its category, it is one of the best. THE Audio tinging audio instructions are also very useful by bike; For cyclists who choose to ride with headphones, you can have your phone in your pocket and go easily where you have to go (be careful all the same security, We rather recommend that you use bone conduction headphones that allow you to hear the surrounding noise). Otherwise, to follow the route on your smartphone, you can use the smartphone bike meters with magnetic fastening for example.

As I said, the application is not infallible and sometimes passes the cyclist on roads unpublished, which is annoying for Road cyclists For example.

3 – Komot

If Google Maps is undoubtedly the reference in navigation in general, it is sometimes a little limited for the Design of bicycle routes.

Komoot uses the OpenStreetMap open-source database and allows you to plan Road journeys, in Mountain biking and in gravel, as well as daily journeys. The big difference compared to Google Maps is at the level of the choice of roads, where Komoot Try to choose the most effective route, taking into account the ease of use of a road or a path for cyclists, as well as your physical condition.

From a starting point and an arrival point, Komoot indicates the degree of difficulty, the physical condition required, the coverings you will meet and a drop of elevation.

Once you have started your route, it tells you the speed, the distance traveled, the remaining distance and allows you to easily modify the itinerary on the fly. You can also consult other route recommendations in your region via the route explorer.

KOMOOT Route Application

The bicycle application to discover new courses

Komoot also offers selected routes, suggested by local cyclists and ambassadors of The bicycle application. This is a great way to discover unknown gems in your region and discover new roads !

The use of the application or the website is free. Users can choose to pay for premium functions, which include voice navigation, offline cards, free updates of cards and circuit export for your GPS device. Payment is made by region, only one region costing € 3.99 and the whole world € 19.99 by paying single (no recurring payment).

4 – Viewranger

While Google Maps or Strava are ideal for truckers or to find your way to the trails, this mapping application is useful for mountain bikers who like a little exploration outside the beaten track.

It can be downloaded for free and comes with an OpenCycle basic card around the world, very intuitive and free, who frees you from any “uncertainty of navigation” when the need arises.

You can acquire additional topographic cards, 20 countries are available. The cards are then stored on your phone and use the GPS of your device, which therefore has No data connection to work.

The application uses your GPS position and the your phone camera To show you the names of the heights you look at (pretty nice in hiking too !)).

You can create and share your own routes in the application, Download the traces of other people or simply explore the surroundings. There is even a live follow -up function “Buddy Beacon” which allows you to share your journey with your faithful audience or with selected friends, and to see who is around you.

Weather applications for cycling

5 – Windfinder

When you draw a route, whether you want to go on roads you know or not, it is always important to know the weather and especially the wind direction. As you surely know, I rather recommend that you go on wind from the back to get back from back. It is an old technique like the world, always relevant, you still have to know the direction of the wind.

Windfinder is the application that I use the most to know the localized weather and the wind direction depending on the time during the day (and yes the wind can turn during the exit !)). This is a card Wind and weather forecast. We can find the meaning and strength of the wind at a specific point. The menu also offers the Localized Map of Precipitation forecasts, Very practical to avoid a downpour.

Windfinder Velo Application

Thanks to this tool, I happened several times to leave with the favorable wind, and to also return with a favorable wind because I had anticipated the change of direction. When it happens, It’s a real pleasure !

6 – Epic Ride Weather, the weather bike application

Epic Ride Weather allows Windfinder to visualize the essential weather information on your outing. The application works important course or some segments From a variety of sources like Strava, Ride with GPS, Garmin, Komoot and VeloViewer. Once you have coupled your sources (s), you just have to select the course or the segment you want to see, Choose your departure time and your estimated average speed, and the application provides information hyper-detailed weather, detailing the temperature, direction and wind speed at each point of the route. For the routes, you can also see the elevation profile under the 2D card of the wind direction. The stronger the wind, the larger the wind arrow icon,.

Epic Ride Weather

This application is used in particular by certain professional teams (that’s how I discovered it) such as the Jumbo-Visiona team or the Israel Startup-Nation team. Below, you can find the data for stage 20 of the Tour de France 2019, the time of the Beautiful Filles Plate, Fatal in Primoz Roglic.

Only negative point, the application is paying for use. Count € 2.49 per month or € 8.49 for the year, reasonable given the quality and precision of the data provided.

Bicycle meter applications

7 – Cyclemeter

Cyclemeter Transform your smartphone into an excellent bicycle counter – if you place it on your handlebars, of course. A good alternative to start by bike without investing directly in a GPS counter.

Mapyride is quite similar to Cyclemeter, but benefits from the online experience of the parent company in terms of mapping software of routes. The application was bought by Underarmour to allow the development of new features.

The application is well designed to follow not only journeys, but also food, weight and many other things, and can also lead you to your destination.

Mapyride

There Premium version Includes training plans, more advanced guide options and live follow -up that can be shared with family and friends.

Halfway between training tool And video game, the company offers cyclists to ride on the roads of virtual worlds (some imaginations and some inspired by real places such as the wind-top or the Alpe du Zwift to respectively Mont Ventoux and the Alpe d’Huez). Your virtual avatar takes up your physical characteristics (weight and size) and advances according to the developed power (captured by your connected home trainer or your power sensor).

Garmin Connect Coupled with Strava will allow your release to be on the Strava network in a few seconds (which requires a manual import if you do not use Garmin Connect)). I specify that this is the case of the Garmin devices and that the other manufacturers of GPS meters all have their own application for the import and synchronization of data to third party services.
