Map My Ride

 MMR1     MMR2     MMR3

The app records a host of data from your ride, including distance, speed, elevation and a detailed route. All of this can be uploaded to the Map My Ride site for detailed analysis and sharing with other users, if you wish. Like Strava, Map My Ride also includes timed sections, called Courses, where you can try and set the fastest time.

Available for: iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch), Android, Windows
Price: Free (premium version also available)

My Virtual Mission

MVM2     MVM1

Rather than dealing with individual rides, My Virtual Mission allows you to set an ultimate goal and then work towards it. So, for instance, you can decide that over the coming few months you are going to cycle the same distance as riding from the eat to the west coast of the USA. Rather than actually cycling it, you set up the virtual journey on the app, and every time you cycle (or run) it plots the same distance on a map of your virtual journey, adding rides on each time you do them. As a goal-setting and motivational tool, it’s good fun. You could also use it to set up a long-distance ride for charity fund-raising, with the app including a function to track how much you’ve raised.

Available for: iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch), Android
Price: Free


CycleMaps1     CycleMaps2

Planning your cycle route is made easy with CycleMaps, which uses a host of sources such as OpenCycleMaps and CycleStreets  to plot the most direct and safest route for you and your bike. You can plot a simple A to B route, or include multiple stops or ‘via’ points. You can also tailor the routes it uses, so that if you fancy a slow, scenic ride it will find the right path, or a more direct, quicker route for fast commuting or training. Also available as an online mapping tool.

Available for: iOS, Windows Phone
Price: Free for iOS (iPhone, Apple Watch), $3.99 for Windows


Go1     Go2     Go3
